Camden Knockabout, conversion from daysailor to weekender
Brad Abbott, built this boat. Its been for sale since 2008. It was a second choice, the first one being a 36' Winslow motor sailor built in the 30's and rebiult completely. It needs a owner, but I'm too tall.
Anyway, this Camden was minding its own business and I fell "boatstruck" in love with it.
After the survey and hopefully all is well, I'm going to get a trailer made for it and bring it to Martha's Vineyard, that is if Mr. Abbott and his partners, Nat Benjamin and Ross Gannon figure out a way to make it a weekender for a cost that makes sense for them and for me.
Its pretty bare below, but I believe they can figure out a way to do some simple work to permit one of my sons and I to sleep and to fit a few other parts of life below.
Some light below would be nice too.
The coincedences abound. My wife and I happen to be on the Vineyard a short walk from Gannon and Benjamin Marine Railway. They brought on Mr. Abbott. And here's the other coincedence, Mr. Abbott's Aluminum boat was built by the Derecktor shipyard which is a short walk from my place in Mamaroneck NY.
Any ideas how one might convert a day sailor to a weekender?
