Thanks

Did you end up buying the Hercules? Any photos?

Current Hercules owner

I am actually the current owner of the Hercules that belonged to the person who started this thread. He mentioned the original builder, Louie Jiran, and I am not sure if he bought the boat from him or someone else. He renamed it Bobbin Bob. Another owner in Vermont named it Iris. I bought it from Pete Hall from Albany who named it The Dirty Tug and painted it all black.
I have been renovating it and replacing a lot of rotted wood and ground off all the many layers of paint and reprimed and painted with Awlgrip. Just recently took out all the leaking windows and replaced the rubber seals with frames and rebedded the glass.
Bought an old trailer after I got the boat and reworked it to hold the boat. Had a local marina pull with their forklift and put on the trailer and now it sits in my yard where I can work on it.
If anyone has any info on the history of L's Belle, Iris, Bobbin Bob, The Dirty Tug, and now, Farside, drop me a line!

Hello ksipes1. Congrats on your Hercules. Nice work. I have the Coastal Cruiser (still nameless) shown in posts on this thread and will start a complete interior remodel later this spring. Interested in staying in touch on your remodel. In particular eyeing turning one of the forward facing helm windows into a openable hatch to the foredeck.

Also thinking about adding a swim platform. Did you add yours or did it come with it?

Glen-L Hercules "Farside"

I am pretty much done with the renovation. Just doing some cleaning and painting in the interior and removing some obsolete stuff not needed. Its ready to paint the bottom and put it back in the water.
The platform brackets the thread starter had were on the boat when I bought it with some pressure treated wood on them. I got rid of the wood and bought some 2"x 6" composite black deck board and made the platform and put a folding stainless ladder and ss handles on it. You can see it in the last picture in my last post.
