This is the perfect boat for those who want a wood boat look and feel, without the maintenance. She is a rare classic, Palmer Scott moulded glass boat with wood frame built in New Bedford, MA. These were the first mass produced composite boats made by vaccum mould injection (same as all premium glass boats built today). See picture of an original advertisement which will also be included.  The boat is in very good condition and is mostly restored. It is not a show quality restoration, but very nice cruiser that is both functional and turns heads all day long. There is some small touch up painting to be done around deck edges where some of the white paint has peeled and the dark blue was applied by brush and roller so there are some runs here and there that could be sanded out and buffed. Looks perfect from 10 ft away. This boat is solid and has beautiful lines. The engine and trans are removed so she is ready for your power. Shaft, rudder, prop all intact and in great condition.I have new laminated 1/4" glass for windshield (all 4 pieces) that is being installed now (cost $800). Has a wrap-around rear bench that hides dual 30 gallon poly fuel tanks. Also has raw water wash down system and hydraulic steering. Includes aluminum I beam EZ Loader trailer with tandem axles and galvenized wheels. (Surge brakes are disconnected) Tows extremely well with great balance and very low tongue weight.
