Agreed, It is a nice looking boat, but it is only 21 foot 6".
Marty if you are serious about acquiring that type of a boat you might be interested in looking at a Ditchburn. They have the reputation of being second to none and were made in Gravenhurst, Ontario, Canada, just 100 miles north of Toronto. Just pull up Ditchburn Antique Wooden Boats for the history and many images of the boats. Unfortunately the factory closed in 1938. Back in the 80 s my wife Freda and I attended several of the antique boat shows in that area. We also attended shows in Alexandria Bay and Clayton NY. in those years. Beautiful, beautiful boats from a past era.
And while we are on this ot subject pull up Pardon Me Antique Wooden Boat. The largest mahogany runabout in the world. I have seen it, as it resides in Clayton NY. Antique Boat Museum. JJB.
