Sad to see that these old rigs just sit and rot away.. Kinda like finding that old '55 Chevy Hardtop only to find it has been sitting in the dirt since 1960.

Nice story to follow. Yes I agree, I wished we live 2-3 lifetimes to keep the history and be able to restore and upkeep all that we have. Life is short. Get the next generation involved and the importance of history. Thanks for sharing the story and the Find.

There are lots of boats like that just sitting and rotting. Every once in awhile, somebody nostalgic will buy one and set forth in restoring. After "investing" a bunch of money, most find out that they are a money pit, and the project gets abandoned. At best, they would end up with an old boat with old technology that would not hold a candle to the boats of today, worth about 1/10 of what you put in it. Selling it down the road is next to impossible.

That said, all of the old pictures and stories should be shared so that the memories can live on!
