Who doesn’t love a barn find? Count me in, I love the search, the find and the reveal. The idea that a boat has been tucked away for years, just sitting there waiting for you to find her. The truth sometimes is that the boats have not been abandoned to the darkness of a barn though. They have been sitting in a warehouse, a garage under years of old toys and stuff. Sometimes it’s just lost interest, or the emotional connection to the boat that won’t allow the family to say good by. So it sits… The old story of the boat bought by a GI in WW2, Korea, etc and then never returning and the family unable to let go, is rarely the case. In the case of a famous barrel back a couple years back, it just was as simple as a bickering family that kept that boat preserved. If you love Barn Finds, this weekend on Lake Mohawk, you can drool all over this Barn fresh 1961 Century Coronado with a Cadillac duel quad perfect time capsule just pulled out of Michigan last week by fellow Woody Boater Don Poetner. Also The Golden Pond Boats from Katz’s Marina will be there all redone, the Ultimate barn Find of the Century. Here is a sneak peak at the Century. UGH, what a cool boat.
