405Ben Bow, Shore Liner, Tunnel Stern (Little Water), Vixen
- Dec 7, 2004Hello all. Sorry for not posting in the last two weeks, I was off in
Scotland doing my real business and also doing a short Boat Building
school on a Scottish Fifie---to great!!
-- Joe, Ben Bow is still here, contact me at bioelf@...
-- Wade, I am not sure on the weight of Shore Liner, but it is at
least 4000 lbs---I would take the engine out and etc and load her
then. Hope all is going well with the pick-up. Since I am back now
I can help if you need it. Drop me a call or e-mail me at
--- Tunnel sterns. I am pretty sure that the Jersey Skiff we have
here at WBRF is an Atkin Little Water---all measurements are right
on. Two worries about her---the tunnel was taken out of the tunnel
stern about 20 years ago during a repair--it can be put back since
that area is in need of much of the restoration. Second problem is
that I dropped her on a bad stand and put a hole in two planks---my
fault as i was rushing to get her safe and I had marginal equipment---
I need stands at WBRF if you have them. Anyway the planks are not a
big deal to fix, and one was not 100% anyway. This boat is up for
adoption and can bet easily trailered. I may take her on myself
though :-) Yes, I am a slow learner :-)
-- Ariel--Vixen: I would love to see Ariel---can you pass my e-mail
to David. I am still trying to ID my boat and I think this would
help me--I am in New England so...... Bioelf@...
Wooden Boat has nicely given the WBRF low rates on ads---so a few ads
are coming out next issue (release 31 Dec). This is good as I feel
many of the listings will be placed, but it also means that if any of
you want one of the three Aktin boats you should get on it ASAP.
