I have been on that boat. Cool as shit. The current owner runs a cabinet shop in Vineyarhaven I think it was. His son was in the peace corps. in Nepal at the same time as my daughter.
He is a very proud owner of a unique piece of Vineyard boating history.

No reference to when this was posted for sale in "Wooden Boat", but the subscription price shown was $29.99. The current price is $34.00.

Anyone have pictures of any of Erford Burts Bass boats?
This fiberglass bass boat was one of his very popular designs.
Currently sitting in the woods on the Vineyard
Needs new wood, motor, etc. but a very worthwhile project for a handy person. Has all the original bronze bits, and a very solid fiberglass hull.
Couldn't get a side view or cockpit shots....too much brush and poison ivy.
