The culmination of a 3-year restoration project, my 1958 Lyman is picture-perfect and ready to make your summer memorable. This beauty is a rare, 15'6 runabout with numerous upgrades and a 1962 Evinrude Big Twin 40HP Outboard in as pristine condition as the day she came home from the factory. The keel and all structural parts are made from clear white oak, the planking material is made from 3/8" Clinker-built fir that is overlapped at the joints so that it is twice as strong as straked hulls. The decks, rails, stern and all of the interior wood is made from Philippine Mahogany. All of the hull fasteners used were specifically built for the Lyman Co. out of silicon cut bronze clout nails that were deeply embedded and reversed clinched. The literature from the day proudly declared, and is still evident 65 years later, that the fasteners never need to be tightened! In fact one of the reasons these hulls are so durable, strong, and safe is that there are approximately 2000 clout nails and more than 850 screws used in planking alone. What makes this Lyman different than any new boat is that it will never be worth any less than what you pay for it as long as it is properly cared for. Boat Details: We tried to keep as much of the original patina as possible while still breathing new life into her with multiple layers of high-end topside primer and paint as well as exterior/interior varnish. She was carefully stripped and sanded by hand. All of the hardware on the boat is period correct and for the most part, nickel-plated brass, including the anchor guides, bow base cleat, and the stern cleats. The Perko bow light has the original late 1950s port and starboard glass lenses, as well as a hole for a flag pole. Stainless steel full length rub rails have been installed on the gunwale and stern spray rails. One of her more unique features is her 1940s Chris Craft split speedster windscreen frame and glass. All of the wiring has been replaced and upgraded to modern standards using high quality marine-grade BlueSea fuse panels, copper wiring, and period correct switch gear. Extra capacity has been added in case the next user intends to install a modern marine radio and\or USB charger. The stern has been pre-wired for a stern light if desired. A second new battery has been added for redundancy along with an NOS A/B switch, a new bilge pump, and a new (unused) in-hull transducer (depth finder) Engine Details: The motor is a 1962 Evinrude Big Twin 40HP. These motors are renowned for their simplicity and reliability. The motor is in perfect running order and looks amazing on the inside and out. The motor was repainted with the original, authentic Evinrude polychromatic blue. The carb, ignition (points\condensers) have recently been rebuilt. The fuel lines and electrical wiring have been replaced as needed. The lower unit oil was replaced when the impeller (water pump) was replaced. When the lower unit was apart, the gear case was inspected and there was minimal to no wear. The compression for the upper and lower cylinders is 95 and 99 respectively. The current and previous owner have always run the motor with AVG (leaded high octane aviation fuel) since the mid 1980s therefore it is likely that this motor has never seen any ethanol fuel! That said this motor will safely run on unleaded fuel but like any modern small motor. Trailer Details: Trailer has been rebuilt from the ground up and re-configured for a wooden outboard boat. There are 3 rollers on the keel including directly under the transom that hold the weight of the boat. The side rails of the trailer have been covered with slick plastic sliders that balance the boat and make it easy to load and unload the trailer. A new Fulton trailer tongue, folding trailer bracket, and spare tire bracket have also been added. This allows the boat to be stored in a standard length residential garage. All of the fasteners on the trailer have been replaced including the u-bolts. The wiring, lights, heavy duty 7-pin coupler, safety chains, winch chain, rear tie-downs, and tires are all new. The trailer is over-built and therefore will protect the boat while its being transported. The trailer was originally configured for a heavy inboard powered runabout which certainly shows. Other Information: All of the accessories that you will need also come with the boat, including a custom made cover with wooden ribs, life preservers, floating cushions, new floating emergency kit (including flares and first aid), beautiful oak oars, two anchors, new docking bumpers, 2 floating keys, and enough new line for 2 boats. Delivery options available.
