You Can Save These Lymans Today – But Not Tomorrow!

We received an e-mail a few minutes ago asking us if anyone is interested in these two classic Lymans, which have been repossessed. They are reported to be 1959 & 1964 Lyman’s that, if not spoken for by the end of the day, will be disposed of on Tuesday.

It would be a shame to see them sent to the burn pile. Might make a good project for Junior this summer!

    What is the point of repossesing something to destroy it? If they were closer (and my wife was in an exceptionally good mood) I would take them off their hands, maybe even give them a few grand in exchange.

    I think we may have learned about these boats bit late in the process. I do not know how long ago they were repossessed, nor do I know what steps had been taken prior to move them along. They are known to us now, and it would be great to find them a home. The “destroy” date is probably somewhat negotiable as long as an interested party can be found and a pickup date established.

    Holy Crap. Why is it that the free boats are not really free. The gas bill from NJ to Iowa is prohibitive. If anyone is coming east I could meet you in PA or I have a drop off spot in west Michigan. I would really go for that pre 1961 17 footer at the top of the page. I hope someone takes them and saves me from myself. Pleease!!!!

    This is Chris with the hard top Sea Skiff you wrote the article about a while back. My brother just contacted Jean about the boats. We will see what we can do. I’d take one of them but I already have a project.

    I just got word from Jean that both boats have been spoken for. $750.00 for the pair, from a buyer who does not have to tow ’em more than a couple of hours.
