Comments:

This vessel is being converted to a cargo carrier. The original pilothouse will be replaced with an all aluminum structure 4 feet shorter than stock to provide a full 22 feet of cargo space on a self bailing 8 foot wide deck. The carry capacity is a whopping 18,000 lbs . The command station is being removed. I will have a lot of parts for sale .I have many pics of her being disassembled, showing the water damage ( rot ) areas that are typical of this hull. Though the deck is sealed to the superstructure by an aluminum extrusion that is fully welded to the deck, the exterior panels easily wick water up behind the aluminum sheathing creating rotted panels.  The engine compartment bulkhead was also destroyed by rot. I plan to post pics through your e-mail of the reconstruction as it advances. The hull is very well designed and strong , showing absolutely NO corrosion.
