Want to become a true fixture in the Classic boat universe? Today is your chance to start your journey, you, a fellow Woody Boater could own and craft the hardest thing to find in our passion. Parts. Wood can be remade, hard parts. No. There is not an infinite number out there of these parts, well, in these parts of the universe. Only so many cleats, lights, plates.. the list goes on.
One, and in most cases the only one source is California Classic Boat Parts, and the King of it all Al Schinnerer. Al is retiring early at age 95. 30 years after 99% of us slobs start eating the early bird special and complaining about kids on our lawn, Al, has been molding and making our passion a better and more fulfilling place.
Are you up for the gig? The throne? To be at the top of the Chrome Mountain? Needless to say, you are never to young to start a new job? Hell Al has spent more time doing this, than many do in a lifetime.
Maybe, it isn’t Al? mmmm makes you think long and hard? maybe it’s not really Al, we all love and care about, maybe he reproduced himself? I am sure, okay sure-ish, you may find an Al Schinnerer mold on a rack. Maybe an AL, mask..
So, you are interested? Here are some of the details. A Bazillion Dollars worth of Molds, inventory, name awareness, good standing, and great brand, all of it for an asking price of $75K, which is less than restoring a boat, or a Railway for example. Give Al a call, email whatever, Smoke signals? Carrier Pigeon? Signal Flags? Maybe a Telegram. Al has seen it all. And a great guy.
