I'm pretty sure it was finished by Eric Clark. I remember seeing pictures of it back when I was speaking with him about finishing my boat.

She was swingin' on a mooring in the Bass River just south of Rt. 28 in August of this past year...and I think two summers ago I ate in a place on the water in Gloucester and the stand of this boat was almost directly over my head. Back when she first was launched I saw her in Barnstable Harbor....she gets around (in a good way).

Boat has been "leased" out and run by someone other than the owner. Not to say that thats a bad thing but you get my drift. I contacted the owner looking to have a serious conversation about buying it prior to starting my project and he told me he was not interested in selling it:confused:. This was after a larger ad with another price reduction was put into the Commercial Fisheries News where it was being advertised. It was and still is an odd situation. Why advertise it if your not going to sell it? Perhaps he did not take me seriously. The boat was finished by Eric Clarke and was well thought out, my only fear is what the guy leasing the boat has done to it while out of the owners sight. The only thing I did not care for was the giant engine box covering the Volvo. Boat cruises 20-22kts and was nicely appointed with electronics.
