Rawson 26

I am first time boat buyer. I found a rawson 26 for $3000.00 CD. The lister doesn't have any pictures and the boat is fair distance away. Two questions what do people think of this craft? and does anyone know where I could find some pics before I make the journey?

The Rawson 26 is basically a fibreglass round-bilged masthead version T-Bird without many of the Bird's excellent features. I believe they actually have T-Bird keels. I don't think too many were built, and for some reason almost all of the ones I've seen have suffered some neglect. Is the one you are looking at in Squamish by any chance? PM me if so.
Probably getting what you are paying for... (not much). Don't forget that the temptation to go for the "cheap" deal will result in something hard to sell in the future.

Rawson 26

I have a Rawson 26. It is a 1966. As I understand there were 22 built, I have no. 17. It is a classic 60's fibergalss boat, its hand laid fiberglass and was built heck for stout.

Its a little slow compared to everything else but I get a 245 handicap at my local races and I don't always finish last.

I enjoy mine and wouldn't sell it
