This is a Potter hull 1973 Seacraft Safari 20 project boat. The boat has been wrapped for a number of years and because of all the emails and texts I've received asking for more pictures, I cut off the cover, power washed the boat and took all the pictures now posted here. The boat is a freshwater boat from Oklahoma. The restoration was started and then stopped. The transom skin was cut off and the rotted core removed, which is about as far as the original restoration went. The hull is clean and solid with one small ding repaired on the port side bow. All the old original carpet lining has been removed from the cuddy. The decks are rock solid everywhere except a small section just aft of the fuel cell cover (highlighted in yellow on pic) that is slightly spongy. The fuel cell cover is solid. The boat was originally set up with a single outboard which is not with the boat any longer. The original transom skin and a plywood core template is with the boat and it's ready to be glued back on once the transom is re-cored. The fuel cell has been removed but new fill and vent hoses were stowed in the cuddy and will stay with the boat. The window glass is all in great shape and the transom rub rail trim is with the boat as well as additional teak trim.
It's sitting on a bunk trailer, but I can't vouch to the integrity of the trailer. It does look as if the trailer has not seen any saltwater and the tires are still holding air. The winch is rusted solid but I'm sure the boat could be towed away as is, if it was staying local on Cape. Both the boat and trailer will be sold with a bill of sale only. I do not have any of the original paperwork. I have experience with complete stem to stern Seacraft restorations and will be happy to give you my thoughts on what needs to be done to bring her back to her glory days as well as how to get the trailer and boat registered and titled in MA, if that's where you choose to title it.
After power washing and cleaning her out she's not nearly as ugly as I originally posted. Potter hulls are legendary for a reason and sure worth the elbow grease to get her back on the water. Please call or text Scott if you have any questions or want to stop by and pick her up. Thanks for looking!
