1977 Johnson Boat Works C Scow

I just bought this boat last week. I'm pleasantly surprised at how well it has held up for a 34yr old boat.

There have been some standing rigging upgrades/modifications, and she could use a sail, but the sail on her is usable for now.

The fiberglass is in great shape with a few hair line cracks here and there in the gel coat.

The mast was recently scraped up a bit when the previous owner turned her upside down on Lake Lanier, but no permanent damage was done.

Over the winter I'm going to sand and paint both the mast and boom and hopefully paint the topsides as well.

Nice boat. For whatever reason we never see 'scows' in Australia. Anyone know why that might be so ? Are they perhaps best suited for lakes ? I have no idea.

ps - Andy, please see my message re your sig file.
