Hi Johnny, I hope you won't mind me but I am a better writer in English than speaker as my native language is French so I would rather chat here

I am leaving up there in Quebec.

This boat is my first ever boat and I really love it.
As a single screw it may be a bit difficult to handle while docking when you are a newbie like me but like told me the previous owner... if you can dock this one you can dock everything!
I bought it end of May and after a bit more than one month of ownership I already have a list long like my arm of things I want to do on it to make it my own

She was born in 1994, built by a guy in Quebec city. That guy was a mechanic and he did a tremendous work at building this beauty, I am truly impressed about the amount of work he did. The hull was bought from lang and he built on top of it. From what I know he did everything by himself.
The engine in it is a fishing boat engine that he fully rebuilt when he fit it in the boat. The brand is Acadia, it was an engine manufacturer from Nova Scotia that was building fishing boat engine. The manufacturer is long gone now, I think they went out of business in the 70s.
They built their first engine in the 30s!
The engine is running like a swiss clock and is starting as soon as you touch the key. I am driving a Porsche and this motor is starting better than the one in my car, I am amazed.
It is a purely mechanic engine, no electronic whatsoever and naturally aspirated straight 6cyl. The power is evaluated at 100 horse power.
When I saw her I felt in love and nearly 2 month later I can just say that I have no regret.
It is not a brand new boat so for sure there are some thing to fix here and there but really nothin dramatic and most of things are purely cosmetic.
The previous owner ( the guyfrom who I bought it, the second owner) bought it in 97 from the builder and has change most of the furnitures by some he did himself in hard mahogany, him too did a really great job.
Now I am taking over from him and will fix the remaining things and will change few thing to make it mine.
She is my second love and better than evrything else, my wife love her too she is not jealous

No unfortunately that is all I know about this boat. I tried to find the guy that built it without success. I also tried to find more info about the engine withut more success.
I love boats that have an history, for me it is kinda like a piece of mankind we should preserve. Even if it sounds a bit stupid, for me something that needed hundreds or thousands of work for someone to be built is an history tresure and should be preserved just to honor the effort that was put in it.

Passanaquaddy / Lang hull

I will try to post a picture of the Lang / Passamaquaddy boat that i recently purchased. (apparently she had come off her mooring during a storm and wound up on the shore, which is why the bow rail looks a bit off in the picture).

Yes it is a 28' Lang that was somehow sold as a Passamaquoddy. It is the identical model to the boat in this link that i will try to post.. ( only the one i have is not in anywhere near as good condition as the one in the link). The boat is currently in Mass, but i hope to have her hauled up to Maine very soon, so that i can begin working on fixing it up.
