Shoulda taken a stern shot I sooze.
She looks Bristol though.
We ran across her this summer, odd but stout looking vessel. One of our boating partners referred to her as the "stubbed toe"

Don't mind the comment but she looks a bit like a brick on water.

One of the less meaningful ways she looks odd is the very prominent slanted windows and all the rest of the boat is void of slanting lines. That suggests she was almost certainly owner built. That much windage also suggests owner built.

A sweet, sweet big Marine Trader. Haven't given these boats much of a look because most are smaller than what I am looking for, but this seems like a great example.

Not interested in owning a boat older than I am.

AL - I tried finding it on YachtWorld. Unfortunately YW's all friggid up!

Let's you and I purchase sight unseen!

We could rent rooms to couples and have lots of income during great travel fun!

I'll bring the hammer and Yankee screwdriver... You bring the pipe wrench and Vice Grip pliers!!

Yup - Condition and general layout/needs are as I imagined. If the hull is sound [especially if per chance refastened below water line] she could make a great floater/gentle-cruiser for someone who wants to work hard bringing her up to snuff.

I saw that boat online and like it, but I can't take on a woody of that size the first time.

The problem with this boat is location. If you can afford the moorage, you can afford a nicer boat. While I would enjoy the project of reconditioning her, I wouldn’t enjoy the expenses.

The longer the boat sits on the hard the more her seams will open and need re-calking
