I hope I don't offend anybody with my greenhorn terms. I just purchased a 33' Charles Hankins picnic style cruiser (1976)with a ford lehman 120, survey was good, oil checked out etc..I currentely run fishing/cruising charters, and she fits exactelly what I always wanted.BUT I never had a wooden boat, hope the local boat carpenter who knows the boat well is on my side.
As time progresses any comments and help will be well recieved, i.e. lapstrake etc.. just downloaded that USCG wooden hull inspection maintenance thing, will study it. She really is the boat I have always wanted
