    Default Plywood Runabout Rebuild

    A while back I found an interesting little plywood runabout with a vintage trailer sitting out in the open, uncovered, in a field. It had fair to good lines inside and out for what looked like a fifties design and the trailer came with hubcaps! I couldn't resist so, after a little negotiation, I hauled it home. After drying it out, I set to work scraping and painting the hull inside and out and and replacing the deck. Trailer got a once over, too.

    I’m real partial to boats of that vintage and style, thanks for bringing her back to life!

    I get by with the judicious use of serendipity.
