The interior and exterior wood is in great shape. The hull and some of the painted surfaces do need a light sanding and a new paint job. The vinyl on all the seating was recently replaced and is in great shape as is the Captain's seat, wooden wheel and control panel. The deck has plenty of open air to sit out and enjoy beautiful sunny days. The original wooden swimming ladder is in great shape. It is not a fast cruiser, but both engines run well. We've enjoyed our time with the boat, but we have moved to Colorado. It's a great wooden cruiser! We hope someone else will love it as much as we do.

3602126 Feet 1962 Century RavenGoing to auction Aug 2nd
We bought this beautiful lapstrake boat in 2002 from a family who often took long overnight trips on Lake Ontario in it. It's roomy and has 2 V-berths forward. Century built the Ravens using African mahogany with keels and ribs of white oak with silicon bronze bolts and screws. For us, it has been a day-tripper - cruising on the Finger Lakes and in Sodus Bay. I have a large barn and it has always been stored inside. I have personally re-done some of the mahogany. Small, cosmetic repairs could be done but aren't necessary. A few years ago I purchased a new propeller and in 2013 I commissioned a fellow to custom make a new aluminum gas tank. In 2005 Kallusch Marine in Sodus NY. re-did the bottom. Then in 2010 a professional did the bottom again using 3M's 5200. It was a hard decision for us to sell it but we are in our 70's and health issues seem to dominate at the moment. We're looking forward to passing it on to others who will enjoy it as much as we have!
