Incredible price reducation on Esco cabin cruiser.

Esco cabin cruiser; 35 ft., 1949

Please see notes from the owner below.
Boat Description
“Pudgie was built in Essex, Ontario, by James Whitson and his crew at the Esco Boat Co. I am the third owner of this well cared for boat. She turns heads every where we go. She is a custom boat, with her own Good looks. Something different!! Many interesting details in her construction. Simple and roomy, down below. This boat has seen many ACBS shows in the area and gets used regularly. I have owned and enjoyed “Pudgie” for 12 yrs, including a 2 week Honeymoon, among the Erie Islands of western Lake Erie, 2015.
The Chrysler Marine 383, engine was installed new in 1963. The heads were done in 2003, new exhaust manifolds, Petronix ignition, 2015. The engine has had meticulous care. She purrs like a kitten. The windshield was completely rebuilt and the bottom re-caulked ( with cotton, the old fashioned way) and re-fastened in 2014-15. New toilet and flooring in the head, 2019.”

St.  Lawrence Skiff; 16 ft, 1980s (below

The skiff is a 16′ St. Lawrence model, built by Tendercraft in the 1980’s. It is the same model that was also built for the Canadian film producer – Robert Lantos. The original skiff owner lived on Treasure Island near Kingston. The current (next) owner lived in Toronto and was using it to access the islands in Lake Ontario. An unplanned sudden move to Saskatchewan has left the skiff homeless.

It is Carvel construction with a white fibreglass covering, which is in decent condition. No hull planking needs to be replaced. The ends of both small decks are worn away and need to be replaced. A small piece of the outer trim, of one the gunwhales – also needs to be replaced.  A sanding and a couple of coats of varnish are needed, but otherwise, the boat is in good, decent, restorable condition.

The asking price is $1050 or best offer.
