SeaBIrd sells quickly!

Although vintage boats do not normally sell like hot-cakes,  given the nature of wooden boat enthusiasts,  we are pleased to report that this beautiful twenty-one foot Seabird , found a new home in just five weeks on the Port Carling Boats website. Although the boat was very well maintained, the time had come to to install a new bottom on the “Bird”.  The owner’s VERY reasonable asking price of $4,000 was undoubtedly a significant factor for the new owner. We wish him/her well with the restoration and hope to see this beautiful classic on the water sooner than later.   (Additional photos below

In praise of Port Carling Boats:
We received this kind note from the vendor of the SeaBird.

…Wanted to let you know that the Seabird has been sold and the transaction facilitated very smoothly through your website. Really appreciated the help and quick turnaround at Port Carling Boats in getting this set up and online.  I must tell you the quality of inquiries from respondents to the Port Carling Boats ad was amazing, learned a great deal along the way.
Many thanks, 

Gary H.

Notes from the owner.
“This 1947 Seabird utility is a truly beautiful boat, always stored in a protected boathouse. The “Bird” is powered by a Buchanan 6 cylinder, 105 hp engine, which received major attention in the winter of 2013, including:
-Remove and replace engine and steam clean inside hull
-Replace flywheel ring gear and rebuild starter and generator and convert them to 12 volt
-Complete new wiring harness and fuse panel to modern specs
-All bulbs and spotlight bulb replaced with 12 volt units
-New 12 volt gauges
-Carb rebuild, tune up, water pump rebuild
-Remove and replace and steam clean gas tank
-New 12 volt bilge pump and blower
