    Pretty hull! Lots of rust! She's a lot of boat at 43 ft. Sad she probably won't find a new home.

    She does have a certain forlorn perkiness

    From the description "Had a sailplan designed by F. Fredette - Queen's lug, Standing lug"

    What is a "queen's lug"?

    Thanks for the tip Greg - I'll pass this around to my network. Wish i was closer, my dad had something similar that was entirely made from mahogany and from that time period.

    That one may indeed be a keeper, but, alas, there's no such thing as a "free boat."

    She is so badly nail sick on such closely spaced timbers that I doubt whether any thing other than a total rebuild would save her.
    It really is quite difficult to build an ugly wooden boat.

    What's that brown planking that lies just behind the stem? Is it cladding that is over the regular planks?
