    Well I couldn't resist , I have a disease . Picked up the 28 Harris that was in Rockaway. My friend Paul and I are building it together. Thanks TJ for hooking me up with Jim. One of the nicest guys to deal with. Boat arrived last night right before midnight. Boat is not going to my shop ( it won't fit) but it's only a mile away. I'll post acouple of pics from last night. Boat is a hill and top , not much else.

    Congrats on the Harris! I would have been all over that if I did not have my hands full. I'm glad it showed up in our area. I would love to take a look at her some day. Good luck!

    nice boat, they are great and good luck. I have a 28 Nauset [the follow on to the 28 Harris] in the South / East Yard at PPM and I believe your Downeast CC is in the North Yard near the haul out crane. I have watched your CC run with the Yamaha on the bracket and it runs perfectly--a lot can be learned from watching that CC run. I will send you a few pics of my Nauset the Donna Leigh and lets be sure we meet up in the spring and compare notes. Thx, Capt Jay

    Yes Jay the CC is mine. I'll be asking a lot of questions once we get boat cleaned and a few more things out of it and start with a clean slate.

    email me anytime with your questions. I am in AZ for the winter and will be returning to Westbrook in early May. Over the decades I have owned dozens of boats of all types [excluding sail] and brands and the Nauset 28 and or the Harris 28 with its built down Royal Lowell designed bottom is great little downeaster.

    A friend of mine in the dark of night. It was about 100 mile each way. He used to do it full time but now he's onto other thing but still has and won't sell the trailer.

    Good luck with project. I 'm sure the crowd will be pleased with how she turns out. Dave does quality work and can knock it out. I 'm hoping to stop by tomorrow night.

    Looks like Artie found her. Maybe that trailer was there on purpose?
