    The guy has to be smoking something funny if he thinks he's going to get $1,200 for that. He thinks it's a 1940's or early 1950's boat, but judging from that windshield (if original), it's newer then that. Plywood bulkhead (again, if original) would point to a newer boat.
    If someone gave him a few hundred for it, he should be very, very happy.
    I was born on a wooden boat that I built myself.

    Yeah nope. Plus, you can almost see the hook at the transom due to trailer misfit + roller sadness.

    I bought a similar sized 1959 PennYan in about the same shape. Paid $500 for boat, motor and trailer. Motor was a 35 hp Gale that actually ran very well. But, at $500, I still think I paid too much. I had rosy memories of my teenage years in my head when I bought it.

    One of the first boats I restored years ago, to much work goes into this. Yes $400 is a fair price. Dave 100_0911.jpg
