BOAT 1. Red with natural varnished deck16′ Plank Redundant Steering Runners and all hardware restored or replaced. New stainless throughout. Bossett “fat head” sail, used twice, ready for your numbers. I removed the markings. Custom Canvas Hull Cover Custom made easy transport (single connection) cart with stainless axle, frame, poly wheels. Runner caddy included. This is a light hull. Lots of detail pics available. Asking $6,250 To build a new one would cost you north of $20K. BOAT 2. Blue with white mast and 16′ shaped plank Redundant Steering Custom Canvas Hull Cover Runners and all hardware restored or replaced. New stainless throughout. Runners are the classic chrome over copper plate. Runner box included. Medium dacron sail. Different sail in photo. Hull has a glassed deck. Lots of detail pics available. Asking $5,000 I have been sailing Yankees for a long time. These boats were in storage for years and since I love Yankees I decided to purchase and restore them so there would be two more out on the ice. I restored both of these this past year and need to make room in the trailer for my Yankee for the coming season. The asking prices reflect my time, materials, and initial investments so I have priced them very fairly. Boats are offered without trailer but could possibly deliver in my region. If there is interest, I will plan to bring both boats up from Long Island for the NEIYA swap meet, so please let me know. Also can send plenty of detail pics and glad to take pics/video of any details you’re interested in. Fred Greis.
