We got an email from fellow Woody Boater Harry Alexander the other day. Now we get these sort of “will you help me sell” emails all the time. As I looked at the photos of the boat. I thought, OK, that’s a cool boat, and it has a cool history. Being delivered to Kentucky with twin KA engines as a Revenuers boat. Model #838, or Possibly a Moonshiner boat. I was thinking, dang this thing is cool, and how fun would it be to restore her as a revenuers boat! Call her “The Revenuer”, have a siren, guns all sorts of Gman stuff. But ohhh, Harry lives in Pennsylvania and well, road trips moving land locked boats that have been on a trailer for 25 years..well… Anyway.. Then as a PS on his hand written note. It says..
PS the boat is located in Kimarnock VA.. WTF! That’s 5 minutes from me. NOOOOOOOOOO!
I did go look, and it looks as good as the photos say it looks. Old and grey! Now this is no simple restoration, and you will need to rob the treasury to pay for the work. But it’s fast, got a cool history and a perfect sized boat. It looks to me that the hull is like a 24 Sportsman with a cabin on it. So we ask! Does anyone know anything about these boats? It would be fun to save. BUT?
