New to Me, 1985 "one off" Hingham Marina

#1

Post by capt_saltydog »

new member, first Post although i have been a lurker for a while. Selling off my 24' osprey fisherman, to fund a lighter aluminum boat. Blessed with a wife who allowed me to purchase this prior to the osprey sale, and quite honestly I could not pass this up!
its 24' with an 8.5' beam, was custom made to fish stripers off Cuttyhunk. Original owner passed on 2 years ago, and the son had no interest in fishing.
Deck is plywood, and soft in spots, so will be replaced this fall/winter. Hoping to have enough cash to have at least a 3/4 Pilot house built, and still looking for information on where to purchase.

Certainly does have the lines of a Winninghoff. Nice find!

Congrats on the purchase! I saw that boat listed and would have been interested in it if it had been on the other coast! I had the same thoughts on the modification.
