1955 Norseman Classic Wooden Boat  I am the second owner, the boat has been garaged its entire life. I recently replaced the removable top utilizing high quality sunbrella material. I also made sure the original holes were used when installing the new top. The front glass windows are flawless, as is the interior windshield rubber seals. The "Kainer" steering wheel is the best I've seen (except for maybe a museum). The throttle linkage controls and dash placards are in outstanding condition as well. The original engine has been rebuilt by an outboard motor specialist (You can search YouTube "Vintage outboard1955 Johnson 25hp"). The carburetor was rebuilt, the motor has new magnetos, wires, spark plugs, impeller, and gear oil replaced. The boat has been in the water one time since the recent refurbishments, at a lodge in the sierras. Misc stuff: I have a brand new 6volt deep cycle battery and case. The trailer has new tires, and has independent springs for unpaved surfaces. I regret to sell this amazing beauty but we bought a home with an HOA so I can't have the garage door open to fuss with her. Please note that this boat is for sale locally and can be unlisted on eBay at any time. Thank you for your interest.
