There she is!
We just got a wonderful note about a story we did a couple years ago regarding a very special Gar Wood in England from fellow Woody Boater Giles from England. She is headed back to the US of A and going to Garwood Custom Boats to be restored. Wooohooo! Here is the note from the Giles in England and some photos of her being packed up!
On the trailer on her way to the port
Being lifted! Yikes!
“Just a quick note to say a big thank you as somebody read your piece on the baby Jr 26 and has decided to purchase her. She is going to Garwood Custom Boats for a full restoration. She was made in 1927 so it seems very fitting that she is going home to the US for her 90th birthday, if you want I can send you a picture of her going into the shipping container on the 19th in Redruth ,Cornwall.
Off the trailer
Headed back to the US
Being loaded in
Once again thank you and your team and if the boat could talk I am sure she would say thank you to as her future will now be secure.”No sure if you I ever sent you this picture but I believe it is the same boat
