    Hm. They may have done some cosmetic work a few years ago but if the photo on the Port of PT site is at all recent she needs is all done over again, and likely more besides.



    Too bad. That's a really neat boat.

    Yeah...looks like she'd be a really great "Sound" boat. I'd be a little uncomfortable offshore with those big windows, but for anyplace inshore she'd be comfortable, if a bit big.

    This has a bit of the aroma of someone thinking they could buy a boat cheap, tart it up a bit, and flip it for a big score. Then reality set in... and they had to walk away. Or - sometimes sudden health issues have the same result.

    I’m none too happy with Hagerty classic car insurance right now. Drove my 48 truck from NH to GA last week, broke down in PA only to be told I had no roadside coverage. They “accidentally” left it off the renewal premium. “Sorry. Would you like a free year of roadside as compensation?” Shopping for a new company now. Their response has been completely unacceptable.

    You may have the right of it David. I'd like to know how she's fastened and the structural condition. This would be a good starting point for a project as she's cleaned up and dry enough without being too dry (hopefully). At my age she won't be my project, but a good start for an ambitious youngster.

    Ben, from what I hear you have a project house now. No time for drooling over boats. Back to work!

    Ha! Ben's wife is doing perfectly fine at enabling all on her own. I keep seeing Facebook posts from her liking boats... Seriously I do not know how they have not ended up with one yet.

    I showed my wife pictures of the boat, she really liked it. Then I told her the back story...too much bad juju for her. Probably just as well, I have a project house to finish too.

    If you would have a good boat, be a good guy when you build her - honest, careful, patient, strong.

    I have a pic of Accolade for sale on the hard in PT with trees like that in the background, Feb/March of 2008. There was three weeks of yard time included when we acquired her so I moved aboard and did what I could to prepare for the trip north. There was so much interesting work going on there they had to throw me out . I loved the opportunity to go through boats like this for the education that it provides regarding construction and other details. / Jim

    Murn' already accuses me of having one I'd get serious about it if we could get permitting...or would have ten years ago.
