What is this??

I have been offered this boat for free as it is in almost irreparable condition. Sad.
Went to look at it today but an infestation of wasp and yellow jacket kept me at bay so I was not able to investigate what I needed to.
It appears to be an early IOR 1Ton. Anyone here have an idea??
Thanks!

Very graceful lines. Bet she was a looker in her day! Good luck if you decide to bite!

Man, I hope your "irreparable" comment proves wrong.

Re: What is this??

I'd like to hear if anyone can guess the Manufacture,
I could repair it, and I believe it is still solid enough to be worth doing, only because I can do most all myself. Very hard to resist, but .....

Here a a few more pictures that are a bit of a kick in the arse reality.


Someone put plywood water diverters along the cockpit which have now disintigt=rated, along with all, ALL, of the wood.



Companion way hatch was left open as was the through deck mast hole and other things. Disaster! Again, so sad that someone walked from this.



Deck was painted at one time this brown. Not sure there is a boom anywhere and I doubt a single sail, let alone a decent one.

Re: What is this??

There nothing really too bad about it. C'mon its fiberglass and the price is right. If you have a place nearby to where you live, preferably a backyard, to work on it you can do it. It won't happen fast but if you see it everyday you'll be more motivated to finish the project. MOTOVATION is the only way you'll get it done. You'll have to dig deep as there is a serous amount of work. I'd worry about getting the boat in safe reliable,sailing condition first, then take her out for a local sail, haul her out after that and get busy on the interior. If you have to leave it at a boatyard, it wont happen. Just too much to drive out everyday and work on their time schedule of business hours. Get it and clean it up but don't throw out anything! You may need a piece or part to use as a pattern. I am totally renovating a 1967 boat that I have stripped down to almost a bare hull. About 1/2 way done now and found about 20 nests inside(and one loud upset frog in the bilge) Should have found 21 as when I removed the sliding companionway door nest number 21 was there and I had no place to run !!! Stung me me right through my jeans too. You will know every square inch of that boat when you are done. There will not be any mystery hose or wire in the bilge that you are clueless about. Think of how many 2012 yachts out there where the owner is at the mercy of the marine technician for every little problem warranty or not. It looks fast just sitting there !!!! Hope you go for it !!!! Bruce

Re: What is this??

A Carter design?? Looks a lot like Ydra with a longer cabin top. Some of the details make me think it was a European build and Carter designs were bigger there than North America in those days.

For free how can you lose? There's a lot of good hardware there and a heavy lead keel even if you just part it out.

It looks like a big but worthwhile project to me.

Re: What is this??

Thanks all. Great to hear this feedback, .. I think you will talk me into this too easily. !

Yea, I figure two years at least to get it done. I do have a place here, behind my barn / workshop. I am a furniture builder so I have a full shop. I also build race cars and radio controled sailboats on the side. If this boat ends up here then that will make four sailboats out behind the barn. By far this will be the biggest.

It's something I have always wanted to do, take a race boat and make it more cruise friendly, but unfortunatly I am broker then I have been in years. I'm sure if I pass on this that it will just get crushed and burried somewhere.

Re: What is this??

Are you aware of the "only-one-major-project-at-a time-rule"? I sold my 1946 street rod to free up space and effort for my boat. Loved that truck, but the law states" Only one project at a time !!! LOL

Honestly it looks like most of it is there. Booms are easily replaced. If it were mine, I'd kill all the critters, pressure wash the thing and take stock of what I'm up against. You already have some skills so your better off already. You may even be handy with epoxy and fiberglass cloth who knows???? I'm sure these forums will help you in a bind too. I'm new here just like you but do enjoy seeing others working on neat stuff too. So where will this boat sail from when your ready?
