Our newest listing:
Classic Shepherd runabout, 18 ft, 1955
This Shepherd runabout, boat house stored, comes with a glass windshield and a completely rebuilt engine.
Photos and notes from Michael Cooke,the technician, below.
“Since 2007 I have performed the following work on the 1955 18 foot Shepherd.
All the wiring has been replaced with ABYC standards. This included all new switches, all new Stewart Warner “Wing” series gauges. The electrical system was upgraded from 6 to 12 volt and a new starter and generator were installed. AT this time, a new coil and a Petronics electronic ignition system was also installed. A second, larger (1 and 1/8th” diameter.) bilge pump was installed as a back up to the main bilge pump.The fuel tank was removed and cleaned and new fuel gauge sending unit installed. The varnish on the back half of the boat was stripped and redone, due to fading and moisture blistering.. The whole boat has been varnished as well at the same time. I also changed the copper exhaust system. The engine was rebuilt by Patrick Keefe of Antique Marine Engines in Pickering, Ontario, in 2011. This included all new pistons, hardened valve seats, valve guides, valve springs and one valve. I sistered a couple of cracked frames under the engine before the engine was reinstalled in the boat.”
