Classic Boat – Barn Find
The launch – Oscar according to her tme listing was built in 1970 by Sam Ford, which I suspect is wrong – Sam would have been a very old man at that stage – maybe it was built then to an old SF design.
All that aside Oscar could be the project boat buy of the year – last I looked the reserve had been meet at $11, yes eleven.
She is approx. 34.5’ in length, double skin diagonal kauri and powered by a 165hp Perkins.
The tme listing (thanks Ian McDonald) states – Oscar has been neglected for the past several years, languishing unused on a mooring, she’s in need of loads of TLC to bring her back to her prime. She recently developed a leak, we haven’t identified where it’s coming in.
Currently on the hard at Pier 21, Westhaven. Sold As-Is, Where-Is, the new owner to take delivery within three days of auction ending.
