Meanwhile, this morning in Jersey City.

A friend working on his boat this morning posted this, commenting, 'That's one way to access the engine room".

A sad waste. Possibly.

That's a long stretch for the shafts before they reach the struts.

I wouldn't really view it as a waste. It's long ago reached the end of it's life expectancy. Those old Chris or Egg or Trojan or Pacemakers or whatever Jersey-built boat it is (was) were never built with the idea they would be around for 50 years.

Still, it always makes me sad to see an old woodie in that condition.

My guess is they are disposing of the boat and ripped it open to get at the engines to remove them for recycling,.

Same for me but this is the expected end for most of them considering the few people interested in owning a woodie.

I don't know.....I grew up on a Pacemaker and most of my positive recollections from my youth revolve around that boat. As a result, I am horribly biased, but that seemed like a mighty fine boat to me. We had a Richardson, a Manson, and a Pacemaker...that was the best by far. My dad was pretty conservative with it, but I remember a few runs up Buzzards Bay into a very angry head sea that cured my mother's atheism while my father and the kids were ooohing and ahhing like it was a fireworks show as the waves came over the bow. Ahhh...good times.

....probably just a fuel tank replacement.

A little bondo and elbow grease and that'll buff right out.
