14' Wood driftboat rebuild project - trailer PICS !!

.........3 oars, anchor bracket, galvanized EZloader trailer with spare, tires and white spoke wheels are Les Schwab and less than one year old. This is my old grey baby seen in many of my pics. It is(was) a GREAT rowing boat. No question about it.

It's an ol' 1968 Birchcraft. This past spring I decided to strip it and repaint it. I got it stripped and as I was doing so I found a patch of dryrot on the center side panel ( see pics)- . Well, this was going to require more work. :beathead: :beathead: I got it put under a covered shelter and then my hip problems were diagnosed(double :beathead: :beathead: ).

I no longer have the time or physical ability to finish the boat. The seats are still mounted but the front deck and eye bolts are out. Ya'll will have to see for yourself to make a judgement. My guess it will take a guy that knows what he is doing about 30-40 hours of work to totally have the boat back in top form- maybe less.

Asking $400.00 for everything. thanks

My son Jason told me about your boat/trailer.. nice project and I need a trailer for a 12 ft alumimum.

Where are you located so I can come over and take a look. Live in Redmond..during the day, during the week.??
