Antique Outboard Motor Club - South Florida Gator Chapter

I have the privilege of recently acquiring this mid 50s Penn Yan King Cartopper. The boat was recently purchased from fellow AOMCI Gator Chapter members. Included with the boat was a first place trophy for best boat and motor combo at the 2003 International Meet Lake Shipp! The little Penn Yan needs new canvas applied to her very sound cedar strip hull. There is minimal wood work that needs to be repaired. I hope to lean on a few fellow AOMCI members for guidance in the wood repair process as well as the canvas application.
I have recently removed the canvas from the boat. The canvas, keel and gunnel trim came off with minimal effort. The canvas replacement I know will be a challenge but I look forward to her completion and once again seeing the pretty little boat skimming along with a vintage motor on her transom.
