1954 woodie for sale


 Boats / Posted 1 month ago by Janet Rupert / 254 views


Built by Emery C. Kemp. This is a basic 1954 Thistle, complete but without add-ons, except for bailers installed by Great Midwest. It’s mostly been stored indoors or covered. I started stripping and sanding it, but have found that it’s more than I want to do. It leaks mightily at the keelson with possible rot, but there is none visible. More pictures are available for the asking. Has gold aluminum mast as the original wooden one broke during a gibe. Will not part out.
