OMAHA – PROJECT BOAT
Must be the week for ‘be-kind-to-woodys’ – todays story features a 30’ launch named – Omaha, built in the mid 1950’s.
Her tme (thanks Ian McDonald) listing states she is an ex work-boat (fishing) from Tauranga.
Current owner has had her in a covered shed for the last 10 years, as they have undertaken the re-fit. The hull has had that ‘F’ word applied to it and it appears most of the structural work has been done. Next step – fitting out and she needs an engine etc. She does come with a drive shaft, prop and a few other bits.
Has a buy-now price of $4.5k so could be project in the making – currently stored in Auckland area.
It appears that the top of the stem has been altered, extending the length of the boat a little.
