17 Feet 1965 Century Resorter

Owning a wooden boat was on my "bucket list" since I was a child spending summers with my family on Payette Lake in Idaho. I liked the Resorter for the name, but also, it's utility. You could put a lot of people in the boat, and it worked great to water ski behind. I found "May Fly" on a boat sales lot in Spokane, WA. It had been stored in a shed, for years -- the result of a divorce, I was told. The wood was not in good shape but there were no missing pieces, and the engine had been overhauled a few years earlier. We ran tests and I found that to be true. The boat was sold new at Tobler Marina on Hayden Lake in North Idaho. It ended up after restoration seven docks away from its original delivery point. She's christened "May Fly" for my wife whose middle name is May. I have replaced the alternator, starter and a few other miscellaneous parts. Two coats of varnish and top rail varnish have been applied this off season. The boat was restored to original with the exception of a color change to the interior. We always intended this to be a user boat rather than a show piece. When the International Classic Wood Boat show was in Coeur d'Alene I entered "May Fly" and she received a Silver Award. The judging sheet with comments is available. Illness is forcing us to find her a new home. I hope the new owner of "May Fly" has the same fun as we have had with her and can enjoy the camaraderie of the wood boat community.

19.5 Feet 1962 Century Resorter

Looking to find a great home for this beautiful 1962 Resorter 19. In the care of SBCO for the last 5 years HISTORY: She was restored in 2002 by award winning restorer Matt Byrne in Illinois from a gray boat sitting in Iowa. He replaced 95% of the wood and stringers. New Interior. She is a traditional board and battan with 5200 on the seams. The engine was rebuilt is 2002. I bought her with approx. 150hrs. She has about 250 I am guessing. I bought her in 2018 and brought her to Lake Tahoe. She has been in the care of Sierra Boat Co since. She has the sliding top, rear ladder, folding sun lounger, spot light, all masts, custom trailer. I have done a lot to keep her in tip-top shape. In 2020 the Gray Marine 327 was removed and detailed. Wires and hoses replaced. Fuel Pump rebuilt. Gas tank removed and rebuilt and detailed as well as fuel/water separator installed. New prop shaft, prop, and shaft log installed with new cutlass bearing. Rudder & exhaust ports resealed. Transmission disassembled and serviced all new seals. New battery and fuse bus installed. Added hard to find Century Horse Head trim to hull. A couple pics are berfore trim added. There is a lot of other small stuff that Sierra Boat can provide records for. Winter of 2021 bottom was refastened and new bungs with fresh paint. Steering Wheel removed and sent to Quality Restorations and was REMOLDED as original. NOT REPAINTED. New chrome from Graves Plating on horn ring. NOS Lincoln medallion installed. This project was $3500 alone TRAILER: The trailer is a custom built (2002) trailer with single axel and electric brakes (These work perfectly). The trailer was re-powder coated about 7 years ago. It needs new bunk felt on one bunk. That’s all the good stuff. There are a couple of things that need attention. The tach stopped working. The other instruments all work but are a little faded. She probably has a year or two before she needs a re-varnish. She runs beautifully and solid. Has never let us down in 5 years of summer use. She is stored at Sierra Boat Co at Lake Tahoe. WHY SELLING? She is too small of a boat for Lake Tahoe. This lake gets too rough too quickly and all the wakesurf boats make it hard to use as much as we'd love to. .

26 Feet 1968 Chris Craft Cutlass Cavalier

We purchased the boat in September, 2015 and have been using it each summer since then. The information we received from the seller indicates that it was originally delivered in 1968 to Minnetonka Boat Works in Wayzata, MN. The records indicate that the engine is a 327 with 210 horsepower. The seller also claimed that work exceeding $18,000 had been done, but there were no details about that work. A previous owner removed the original cuddy, but as you can see from the pictures, it does not look chopped up. Essentially, he created a large open boat for day cruising, which is exactly how we have enjoyed it for the last several years. We have it on a lift in Lake Minnetonka in the summer and it is stored indoors in the winter. We invested in a complete strip down to the wood and repaint of the lap strake sides and a stain and varnish refinishing of the transom (although the transom finish is starting to weather). We also had the carb and starter rebuilt and a new fuel pump installed. The engine runs well and it cruises along pretty well when it gets up on plane. There is no speedometer so I can't tell you how fast it goes. It holds 10-12 comfortably as it has a 10-ft beam. It handles waves extremely well, including running through wake-surf boat wakes at speed. The trailer was purchased in 2016 and has been used sparingly. The boat appears to be structurally sound in general. The bottom is ok but could probably use some caulking and sealing in places, particularly where it meets the transom. There are a couple of floor and/or floor support pieces that could be replaced where the wood is starting to deteriorate, but we use it as-is now with no immediate problems. Some cushion covers are ripped, but useable (filling is not falling out). The engine runs really well. If it sits more than a few days, it usually requires priming some gas directly into the carb, but after ignition it runs fine and will re-start without issue. We have used the boat every year including this summer.

26 Feet 1956 Chris-Craft Continental

"Twin Spin" is hull #3 out of the 48 26-foot Continentals made by Chris-Craft in 1956 and only 82 of these big utilities ever made by Chris-Craft between 1956 and 1959. "Twin Spin" was originally called "Allegro" by its initial purchaser, Dr. Clayton Stubbs; who was one of the wealthiest residents in Mount Clemens, Michigan, and could afford to purchase one of the first three Chris-Craft Continentals made with many special order items from the factory. The price he paid in 1955 was around $9,000, which equates to the price of an average house, or four new Chevrolet Bel Airs at that time. The boat is mostly original as per the original hull card. Some of the special order items from the factory which make this boat a standout are its full length instrument panel from port to starboard, with glove compartment and door, throttles together on port side of the steering wheel, hatch in the forward deck, amongst a number of other special order items as per the original equipment record from Chris-Craft. They are all are still on the boat today. "Twin Spin" was completely restored in Holland, Michigan around 2006, where the bottom was encased with a West Bottom system along with all the other bright work, engines, etc., being brought up to show standard. The work was commissioned and finished by Grand Craft in Holland, Michigan, one of the leading boat builders of mahogany boats in the USA with a reputation second to none. Since that time the boat has done less than 200 hours and has been kept and cared for as part of my collection. Making this boat even rarer and more sought after are its powerful twin MCL 175hp engines, which make cruising at 30 knots a breeze and achieving 40+ knots with ease as the engines purr in synchronization. The twin engines make docking and maneuvering easy in tight spots - along with making the skipper look like a true professional! "Twin Spin" makes Riva owners envious and is now looking for a new home and custodian to take it into the future.

19 Feet 1964 Thompson Super Lancer

I purchased the boat in 2000 from second owner, completely restored and used often for 10 years nearly every weekend in fresh water lakes, towed to Florida several times to the St Johns River, Tennessee River in Alabama and Mississippi for wooden boat events. The boat is ready to launch now and is fully equipped for pleasure rides, river cruises, fishing and towing. Comfortably carries 4-6 people. I have cared for, maintained and kept stored safely out of the weather when not in use. It is sound and as all lap strake boats it does seep some water until fully swelled but not of any amount that the bilge pump cannot maintain. I upgraded the engine to modern power 1999 4.3 Mercruiser V6 and a new drive when I replaced the rotten transom. The original in line 6 cylinder was great but this boat responds extremely well with the V6 engine. Our reason to sell is we have decided to purchase a different primary boat and this one is primary now so no need for two. 2012 West System 3M 5200 bottom with all new marine plywood and keel cap, new covering boards and decks, strip seal and painted entire hull, stained and varnished all wooden parts, new floor boards and vinyl covering, new hardware, 21 gallon below floor plastic gas tank, depth/fish finder and GPS, Minn Kota remote control trolling motor (24 volt) , new deep cycle batteries, rod holders. 2015 New interior vinyl, modern gauges, dash board, new convertible top, restored trailer, new stereo with Bluetooth, two marine speakers mounted on hideaway hinged board under dash 2019 Replaced interior with black gator and tan vinyl, new sunbrella cover with draw string and snaps for towing 2022 Replaced transom and rear deck, applied 13 coats of varnish, changed furniture to sundeck and bench, new vinyl in rear, improved stringers, installed 1999 V6 4.3L engine, brand SEI new drive, all new gimbal bellows, cables and seals, upgraded engine controls and wiring, added new electric trim tabs, 4 new marine speakers in rear bench seat, thru hull transducer for depth/fish finder and GPS, repainted hull and bottom, new trailer hub bearings, aluminum mag wheels and tires Additional accessories included in asking price All operation and safety gear, mooring lines and fenders, spare prop and hardware, fishing tackle for trolling, portable live well, 4 rods with open face reels
