    25' Fibfab with yanmar diesel lobster boat

    The boat above has a I/O. At least it has a nice Yanmar.

    Now here's the real deal... in my town, there's a Fib Fab with what I think is a keel and inboard engine. I have to look at it more closely. It is white with green/black flecks all over... mold or lichen growing. Sitting there for a decade or so now hence the growth. If there is any interest in this boat I will take a iPhone picture of the FOR SALE sign... if it's readable at least. I'm tired of looking at that boat while I go to the town dump. It needs a new home, almost a decade sitting isn't good. I have zero interest in it, not my type at all. It is sitting next to Route 209 in Phippsburg, Maine near the town dump if anyone in the area knows the area.

    Never heard of a fib fab with a keel and always wondered what not. I too am not interested in purchasing but I’d love to see a picture

    I'll have to get there and take actual pictures myself. This is a screenshot off Google Maps and look at the date... same boat. Looks like a keel there. Maybe it has an I/O but I think I did see a proper direct shaft propeller.

    The mold did have full keel. I built 5 out of 22 boats with the full keel. The boat in phippsburg had a 200hp volvo in her and was set up as bare bones lobster boat.

    I wasn't kidding when I said it had stuff growing on it. I found small trees growing around it! Price is $5000, phone number is 207-389-2373. I have suspicions the engine is either not there or seized. I think I see some engine parts on the floor in one of the pictures.

    The boat is very rough. Registration sticker suggests it last was in the water in 2007. I would appreciate anyone telling me what that plexiglass window forward of the prop and also what model the other boat sitting next to the Fib Fab is.

    Apologizes in advance if the pictures take too long to load. I thought about doing them as thumbnails but left it as full size.

    Interesting to know. By the way, I apologize for the pictures above... I know as a builder it sucks to see one of your builds end up like that. I hope someone can give her a new home...
