For that price I'd sure look.

78 looks like it's plywood. And if she's sound I'd consider that a plus .. unless some fool has fiberglassed it.

Just a suggestion...Any use of capitalization and punctuation would greatly improve the readability of these posts, newbe. Maybe it's just me, but my old eyes have to read each of your posts twice to get to the true meaning. Thanks!

Reminds me of the time we just got to Sitka on my dads tugboat, and my mom was walking up the ramp carrying a sea bag. And my old dad never one to miss an opportunity to annoy my mom, yells out loudly enough for all to hear, "well, here comes a sea bag with a sea bag!". Ma was not nearly as amused as us kids were!

Find out if the boat can be insured, what is required and the cost. Also if there are skilled workers yard. Some yards will not pull a boat or capable of.

Cruising or living on board in a boat is one hobby.

Maintaining a woodie is a different hobby.

Which hobby interests you?

Pretty much. Wood boats always have some water in the bilge or almost always at least. Very rare to see a dry bilge in a woodie. Depending on how its built it can usually be fixed if its enough to be annoying.

The engine looks like a Lehman 120 to me. Natural aspirated with a CAV fuel system.

They tended to leak here and there, and they were kinda heavy old clunkers, but they ran OK. I've overhauled a couple, and they're straightforward to work on. Just remember to check the lube oil level in the injection pump (it's separate from the crankcase) when you check the oil in the pan.

The last one I encountered became a mooring and I replaced it with a 125 HP Isuzu 4BG1T.

Good Luck!
