1939 Sparks and Stephens designed 35' Lawley built Weekender, sloop rigged
Curious what you think of this one time fine craft. It has been stored in a dry barn for 15-20 years. It is near all original... what is left of it... I should say...
The engine... is a 4 cyl Gray Marine missing at least the ignition system... I don't know if the engine has any value at all. Don't know if it is frozen. I certainly wouldn't want to be out on the big pond with such an aged engine...
Starting at where the cockpit used to be and going aft... Most of the frames are broken... missing or a pattern of what use to be there. The Stern post(?) is a pattern of what was there. Most of the interior has been removed.
The hardware is scattered about... claimed to be in the barn... The mast is out of reach... I could see where rain water had seeped on it at one time. Staining the mast.
She has all steal bolts. Forward of the cockpit it actually looks like a decent hull, including a deck. Has sails, mast, boom, standing rigging
My question is... do you she is "save-able" or should she be retired in grace... I have no problem taking on a big task... even have the space for it... However several opinions before tackling such an adventure, would be appreciated
