FOR SALE: QUIET PRESENCE
Thirty five foot, lying Gouldsboro, ME. Cedar on oak hull, pine on oak house, Semple boiler and twin Semple V-compound 3" + 5" x 4" engines, coal burning.
Enclosed salon and open fan-tail seating; now set up as a day boat but could be refitted for cruising. Full of loving details like drop-down railway-style windows and a dutch door to the stern. Launched in 2001, when she was valued at $100,000 for survey. I'm ill and can't keep her, so she needs a new home.
At this point, she needs about 6 small boards between the windows in the side of the house on the starboard side and five on port side replaced, where an undiscovered flaw in the original pine has turned them punky. I took the main feed pipes out when I winterized her; it's an afternoon's work to put them back in; they're sitting in my living room. And she needs a coat of paint. Otherwise, I've been over her and seen no problems.
You can see more pictures and additional information at the original builder's site: http://www.mp-marine.com/steam.html
Asking $40,000, with terms available to a good steam home: I want to see her back in the water quickly!
FOR SALE: I have drawings & patterns and can get castings for Navy "K" engines, 3" + 51/2 x 4" compound engines; also 3" x 12", 4" x 16", 5" x 20" stern wheel engines.
