DRAFT: 2'6"

 

CONSTRUCTION: This launch was traditionally buit in 1936 by Seth and Les Rice of Great Cranberry Island. Cedar planking over oak frames. She was fastened with galvanized steel, not longer-lasting copper or bronze. Nevertheless, what shows of her bolts and clenched-boat-nail plank fastenings indicate they they've lasted well. There's absolutely no sign of rust on here cedar topsides. She's smooth as smelt, as the saying goes. Bronze sheathing along tumblehome, port and starboard. In 2000 Ralph Stanley repaired/replaced portside areas - stem and skeg when boat broke loose from mooring. Varnished fir decks, oak cockpit coaming and guard rails, mahogany engine box, stern seat, ceiling. Gray painted sole.

 

ENGINE: No working engine presently and is now ready for a more reliable diesel. Was powered with Chevrolet 292 gas engine, FWC, with bronze shaft swinging a 4 bladed bronze prop. Cable steering with bronze spoked wheel to starboard of engine box.

 

TANKS: Two S/S fuel tanks installed in 1986 (to replace original copper tanks).
