Comment from Barn Find Story

Lots of people knew of the boat. Problem is it was a small tree in a big forest. When you walked in to the barn you were attracted to one of the large triples or the 38′ Chris-Craft Commuter or the Robinson commuter or maybe the bulldozer with the Packard engine. It all belonged to Brian WIlburn. Brian had collected boats all his life. Years ago he would run ads with half-dozen triples trying to sell some and keep some. He even had a 26′ Continental twin. Someone dumped it in his yard on April fools day.
The commander was the ugly duckling. It sat unwanted as everything else was sold off. Unfortunately Brian Passed away a couple weeks ago.

Ya gotta love the web and its tentacles of transparency. I feel like the TMZ of the Classic Boat world today…Oh god, I suppose next week I will have found more shots of Britney Spears crotch..ugh!
