Buster the sad little boat

This is one of those times that I wish I could afford to save a boat that is in sad shape. This thing is crying for some help. Fisherman Bay Lopez Island.

Very nice classic lines. I'm sure hearing her diesel chug would be a real treat too if its original.

What a cutie! Reminds me of the children's book "Little Toot." Definitely worthy of saving...

Super neat! Cant recall actually seeing a small Atlas diesel, but at 60 hp and 4 tons..shew! And the size of that wheel! A real tug.
