    Default Atkins Eric Jr. on Seattle CL

    https://seattle.craigslist.org/see/b...707650530.html

    Keel laid in 1960 but never launched. Looks like an absolute steal at the price.

    It's possible? I did a search before posting as it did seem like something we would have seen before. Didn't find anything though.

    It may be that I saw it on ebay or craigslist before. I'm always browsing wooden boats.

    What are your thoughts on making this ready to sail? Maybe tow it to Port Townsend where there are qualified people to work on it?

    Some would say there are qualified people in Seattle.

    Can you recommend sources in Seattle?

    Keelhauler, as Pat says there are many people in Seattle and I'm sure you can get some good recommendations if you want to go that route. But since the boat is on Vancouver Island and it looks like you are in Long Beach I don't know that there is any value in bringing it down here. As long as you are going to pay someone to have the work done, why not do it in B.C.? There are talented shipwrights up there as well. I can recommend James Roberts in particular. While I've never hired him directly I do own a boat that he worked on (new planks, frames, horn timber and transom) and the work was done to a very high standard. I can put you in touch with him if you are interested.

    It has been flagged for removal. I saw it several weeks ago, it is listed on Craigslist in multiple cities.

    IIRC they were allegedly asking only $10K or so. Didn't respond but if a deal seems too good to be true........

    Thank you pcford and Chris. I agree completing the work where it is has possibilities. From what little I know about the area Port Townsend is apparently the wood boat Mecca? So that's where my thinking started and where I thought the search might begin.

    SNAPMAN. I got an email reply. The ad is up as of yesterday. If a hoax they sure are talented.

    Might be a steal indeed. Eric Jr. is one of my favorite designs.
