I'm kind of thinking about picking this up. the weather does not help tho.
pretty sure the wife is going to see it on the side of the house or if I ask her to start parking her car in the driveway...... ;)

I’m interested, but have never worked on a boat before.

What is involved in getting it finished?

Very surprised that this hasn't sold. Just the oars/oarlocks and other hardware would run well north of $200 on their own.

Jake - buy the boat. There's a ton of info about wood boat building, repairs, and maintenance on this website alone. I'll share what little wisdom I have on wood boat repairs and maintenance. And @JayB is right, the hardware on the boat is worth the purchase price. Fixing and maintaining wood boats is fun.

I’m very, very tempted. I don’t have a pickup, though. It’d have to ride on top of my SUV.

Gotta figure that one out.

Not as easy as loading it in the back of a pickup but it can be done. Lots of youtube videos out there with how-to's. If you're sturdy/agile enough, you can use the same technique sans the straps/blocks and just slide the boat up a couple of 2x4's and onto your rack. This guy's technique is probably more prudent for most folks, though.

I agree that it’s a great deal, and I’d love to do it, but I think I’m going to pass. As much as I’d like to, when I asked my wife if I could drive out and pick it up, she said “Isn’t it a bit small for you to sleep in?”

She’s still a bit sore about me arranging for Santa to put a surprise brand-new Lund Rebel XL in our single-car garage a couple of Christmases ago while everyone (including her) was asleep.

I also don’t own any power tools or a covered work area. I could buy them, but I think I only get to pull the Santa trick once.
