Bad story, good hull. The Lake George incident actually got the Coast Guard to change the "average" weight of a passenger to reflect heavier Americans. The boat was way overweight, especially for conditions, but not overloaded according to the then current CG regs.
Other than the tragic background, the hull looks ripe for a make over.

I looked at the pictures first and immediately thought “looks rolly” then read what happened to it. Damn.

The Dyer 40 is a great boat... Just b/c some idiot raised the deck practically to the gunwales, jammed it with passengers and drowned them is no reason to condem a good boat. IMHO

Nice hull. But it would take some time/money to lower deck and put a normal cabin on it.
