25’ 10” Feet 1947 Original Design

‘Chub’, originally ‘Trio Dee’, is truly one of a kind! She was built in 1947 by L.E. (Earl) Fowler at Friday Harbor, San Juan Island Washington. She was built of reclaimed Port Orford cedar and oak. It would seem that the builder combined ideas and plans of different boats but it’s a bit unclear. The following is a direct quote from Earl Fowler found in a letter to Tom Thompson. “ I looked at all the designs in how to build 20 boats. It made me want to work again. At a quick glance ‘Serene’ resembles Chub but her plans were published in Rudder magazine in 1946, by a great lakes man named Wycough. There was just a picture and a table of offsets. A half section, the rest was all mine.” In 1958 she was sold to a marine surveyor in the SF Bay Area where she still resides today. Around 1969 Tom Thompson took possession and renamed her ‘Chub’ after a fish with a belly that resembles her hull. Tom owned her for 30 years. Afterward, she changed hands many times in 12 year period. I came into possession Halloween a 2012. Chub has been registered and active upon the water her entire life. She has been greatly cared for by numerous owners, myself being one of them. It is with great sadness that I create this post, it is so difficult to let her go. So much blood, sweat, and tears, and so much joy and laughter. Unfortunately, 2020 changed everything, and so it must be. Chub is a magical little boat and her story is long and wonderful, but for the sake of this posting I’ll keep it to the vitals. She’s a great all-around vessel for fishing, socializing, and towing. • Refastened below the waterline with stainless in 2000. • Hauled in 2014- bottom job, new prop, and Cutlass bearing. •. Hauled in 2017- bottom job, recaulked seams and re-powered. • Repowered in 2017 with a Volvo penta MD 17 C, 3cyl diesel w/low hours, excellent compression. Has awesome hydraulic drive. Plenty of extra parts- belts, filters, clamps, pumps, etc. • Raw water cooled but has had heat exchanger in the past. • New batteries, charger, bilge pump and float switch. Although her bilge has always been dry. • Wheel is from the USS Oregon, has wonderful little gypsy wood burning stove, and plenty of extra parts, fasteners and period pieces. As we all know a wooden boat’s work is never done, rather it’s an ongoing love affair. I’m looking for Chub’s new romance, the next situation, the next person or group of people that will keep her alive and moving about the water. And with that I leave you with another quote from Earl to Tom, “ I have built a number of boats for myself but Helen and I enjoyed Trio Dee/Chub more than all the others”. Any interested parties should feel free to contact me for further information.

19 Feet 1973 Chris Craft Lancer

I’ve been slowly restoring this classic Chris Craft boat but just don’t have the time needed to do it the right way. The boat runs and will be water ready once the outdrive is repaired (see below). Here's what I’ve done so far: Rebuilt the top end of the engine. 307 small block Chevy. Heads rebuilt by Hazel Automotive. New DUI marine distributor New marine starter Carburetor was rebuild (still could use some adjusting) New shifter solenoids New electric shift cable New freeze plugs ( the block was flushed with acid.) Manifolds were flushed with acid. All new hoses. New custom dash All new gauges. (Never finished hooking up the speedometer gauge) New fuse panel A lot of new wiring New 29 gallon gas tank. New mooring cover. New jump seats Painted the outdrive. OMC electric shift Added second battery with switch On the trailer: New tongue with Hydraulic Brake Actuator New brake line kit. (Not completed but I have all the parts) New wheels New hubs/drums Here is what it needs: The outdrive needs a new upper gear housing. I ran into a sandbar (at idle speed) while approaching a beach. It cracked along a spot that had previously been repaired (not by me). But upon inspection the weld looked to be done poorly. It will also need the tilt quadrant gear. As I lost it on the back after that happened. The ball gears will need to be replaced sooner rather than later. The floor will need to be replaced sooner rather than later. Windshield needs to be tightened down. The pass through window needs to be replaced. It just looks bad. I have a new piece of Acrylic for it. Could use a new steering cable. TLC Like I said I love this boat but I just don’t have the time to give her what she deserves. Let me know if you have questions. Thanks David

16 Feet 1957 Thompson Sea Coaster

This 1957 Thompson Sea Coaster was restored both inside and out and will be sure to turn heads when you are on the water cruising in this wood stunner. The hull is all original 5-Ply Douglas Fir Laps. The laps were inspected, tested, and tight. The hull was then sanded and all bolt fittings were sealed with MarineRX 2-part epoxy to ensure another 70+ years of on-the-water fun. The hull received a full Pettit System paint finish, including three coats of Pettit Marine Primer, four coats of Pettit Topside Above-the-Waterline Gloss Polyurethane and four coats of Pettit Hydrocoat ECO Ablative Antifouling Paint below the waterline. The natural wood finishes on the exterior are mahogany and sealed with three coats of Pettit Flagship Gloss UV Protecting Varnish. The Sea Coaster's interior hull has been sanded and finished with two coats of Smith's Clear Penetrating Epoxy Sealer. The floors are beautiful teak slats that have been sanded and hand-rubbed with teak oil. The seat backs have been sanded and sealed with two coats of Pettit Flagship UV Clear Varnish. The bench seat cushions are made of new open-cell foam and covered with new marine vinyl. The decking brightwork is a mix of original and additional, period-correct hardware. The metal and wood rub rails are all original to the boat. I've added a mahogany rub rail strip and brass nail detail between the top and second lap to protect the lap edge. The windshield frame is solid mahogany and dovetail constructed. All new tempered safety glass was installed this year. New wiring has been run throughout. The motor is a beautifully restored 1956 Kiekhaefer Mercury Mark 30 with electric start and is paired with a 1956 Kiekhaefer Quicksilver mechanical control. No other way to put it, this boat is sexy! The trailer is a Holsclaw Trailer from the 70s

27 Feet 1957 Chris Craft Cruiser

Up for sale is a 27 foot cruiser hull. 1957 or 1958 model by the hull number. I bought this hull to swap over the engine and fittings from another cruiser that I have, as this one was redone and has a no soak bottom. I believe the bottom and sides have a West System finish. There is extra West material included with the boat. The boat sat in our warehouse for about 10 years now, and the sides haven't moved or cracked one bit. Very tight and solid hull. I didn't know that the hull had basically all of its hardware when initially purchased, and for that reason didn't end up swapping my hardware (which is slightly different) from my other hull onto this one. As far as I can tell, everything is there to finish this boat. Some of the chrome seemed to be redone already, while some could use re-finishing. The rudder is still installed, with the steering rods inside the bilge. Copper exhaust pipe is also included. I attached pictures of all the miscellaneous parts and fittings spread out on the floor. It has a new spotlight installed, comes with a new blower and bilge pump (both still in box), rolls of electrical wire (and a wiring diagram drawn by the gentleman previously working on it), blueprints of the boat, new flag pole, 2 captains seats, rough convertible cover, etc. etc. See the pictures for everything included. The only thing not included is an engine, prop, or trailer. I used another trailer from one of my 26 footers to have this thing picked up, so I do not have a trailer to offer with it. The boat came without the engine or prop, but I have some spare MCL's (needs to be rebuilt) that I can offer with the boat if interested. I can offer any additional pictures or information to the best of my ability. Don't miss a chance to get a great boat that already has the hard work done to it!
