Hi Guys, I have the opportunity to get a boat for free. The boat appears to be a Chestnut, but there are no identifiable markings. I'm told it's a Bob's Special, but I'm not certain this is right. It measures 15ft in length, is 34 inches wide from outside the gunnels (I read that Bob's are 37"), and is 12-ish inches deep. The ribs are 2 3/8 inches at the widest point, but they taper as they reach the gunnel. The ribs are about 2-3inches apart. All of this is to say that the boat might be a Chum? The old owner tells me that the boat was 60 years old when he bought it in the 1970's, but this doesn't seem right to me. It seems like, based on the dragon fly website, that the boat might be a chestnut post-1967. Might. The deck is half moon shaped, with a bit of a cutout underneath. Lastly, it seems the outwales have been replaced at some point. The installer put some sort of cap on the deck. The boat floats, which is great, but here's the kicker....most of the ribs appear to be cracked or broken and the boat was fibreglassed probably 35years ago. It is also super heavy. I have attached a couple photos if that might help. Two questions, 1) any help identifying the boat would be majorly appreciated, and 2) is it worth restoring or should we just enjoy it while it lasts and start looking for something else? Many, many thanks!!
