Anyone pondering this particular boat, or one like it, check out the link below to see just what can be done for pennies on the dollar when compared to something new with equal performance and size.

Interesting that this free boat is in the same immediate neighborhood in CT, that Don Hancock found his 31' Flybridge Express, MARIANNE, which was TOTALLY restored and renamed "DUCKTALES"

On Don's restoration (now proudly owned by Bob Koss, Michigan, Lake Huron side) he removed the old engines.
On this free boat the old engines are already gone so you won't have that problem.

This is what CAN BE DONE...............................................................

Yes indeed, Don's project is proudly showcased in the 31' Commander Chapter of
"The Legacy of the Fiberglass Chris Craft Commander" (book) and rightly so!

I posted this note about the FREE BOAT becuase the initial title post didn't draw attention to that.

Here is the identical same boat, as restored by Mike Burdette, here on The Forum,
