FB999 - Penn Yan

1958 Penn Yan 12' Cartopper Classic Fishing Boat. Light Weight wood /canvas construction. 12 Feet Length, 50" Beam. ALL ORIGINAL! Original Canvas, Wood, Paint and Varnish. Always garaged and one family owner since purchased from Penn Yan in 1958! Sixty years old and very hard to find in this condition and almost impossible to find west of the Mississippi! All decals, metal labels, the serial number and pinstripes are in outstanding condition. Original Smoker Brand® oars are included (One oar still has the original Smoker Decal. The oars have been wrapped with Nylon to prevent rubbing on the gunwales, the tips have been protected with rubberized paint and the grips have been covered with soft rubber sleeves.) The Boat comes with a rubber coated anchor and rear loading and traveling brace that fits in the end of a trailer hitch for easy loading. Some crazing of the paint on the bottom and a couple of small tears in the canvas that have been repaired. The boat can be easily restored to "as new" with VERY LIGHT sanding of the bottom paint, repainting the bottom with the correct aqua paint (available from: www.pennyanboats.com) and clear coat over the entire canvas. The condition of the varnish is 90% excellent but the interior wood, gunwales and transom could be restored to "as new" condition with VERY LIGHT sanding and an overcoat of Man-O-War® marine spar varnish. The boat can accommodate a 3-5HP gas motor or a 55lb thrust electric motor. A classic fishing boat in excellent original condition that will last for another 60 years with the proper care.
