So in my usual cruising for coolness on ebay, I came across a cool feathercraft. Now, we all know these are around, and yes this one is a tad rarer than other. But it will need some TLC.. But the seller is a future advertising executive for sure, chose to sell the dream. We applaud that here at Woody Boater since in fact that’s really all these boats are. Dreams, memories, history…it’s all a state of mind. Here is what the seller has to say ” My best guess is a 1948 Runabout. I looked a long time to find one to build a replica of the 1949 Albany to New York Marathon winner. It includes a Champion 7 1/2 of the same vintage. It could be a fun project for a collector. ” Pure genus, its not just a painted in need of restoration feathercraft… it’s a race boat ..kinda! Even has a film to help the dream along.. The film is chocked full of very cool graphics by the way, and a way to spruce up any small outboard .. IN COLOR! If you want to see the sale on ebay, click here. The film.. right here.. Happy feathercraft dreaming.
OH… and happy header day! Those of you that know what that means.. enjoy, those of you new to Woody Boater.. just click on stories… it’ll make sense. Kinda.
