Thanks to Fellow Woody boater Dave Bortner from Freedom Boat Services, for sharing this fine example as proof that Classic Boating can be affordable and fun! Take it away Dave!
1955 Larson, Johnson 25, note upholstery (perfect), stamp on seat bottom denoting “new wood preservative”,
cool original trailer, hasn’t been in the water for at least 20 years, bottom has been fiberglassed but appears to be a factory option, and it fits in the newly-popular proletarian price category ($5,995), proof that even Freedom can find, and participate in, the accessible end of the market!
Last registered (1992) as a 1955 model, Dane, does that look right to you? Looks older, but the Larson decal on the boat looks 1955?
So, here it is, an easy affordable way to be a preservation snob at the fancy pants boat shows. You don’t have to spend a cent on any varnish, NOTHING! In fact if you do that you may destroy the value. It’s perfect just the way it imperfectly is! Just like you! You can start your journey into the passion of classic boating, RIGHT HERE, at Freedom Boat Service. Now, look around and see how far you can escalate your passion. But for now, you can get your fix with this Larson, that you don’t need to even fix!
