This Lyman Islander has been in our family since it was new. Its first 40 years were spent on Lake George, NY at the family home. Suzy's dad, Patrick, traded kitchen cabinets and a small amount of cash for it. Since Patrick's death, it has been kept on Lake Champlain, VT. The boat, originnally named "The Speed Merchant" (a tongue in cheek reference to it's slow and steady pace) is renamed "On Moonlight Bay" during our stewardship of it. It has been trhough a complete renovation in the early 80's and will need some refinishing by the new owners. The engine was rebuilt in early 90's and is in reliable working order. This boat is great for fishing or picnics with friends. She is in solid condition and well loved by our family.
