A little update on the old Shepherd: The short planking from the helm station and forward are definitely the result of a coarse repair a long time ago. Short pieces of roughly cut planking has been inserted in the middle of the forwardmost original planking. Since this is the same on both sides of t...

Re: Very old Shepherd - any ideas?

I am. I'm too young and naïve not to be. And my grandmother used to say: "Lediggang er roden til alt ondt" - directly translated to "Inoccupancy is the root of all evil". Basically the Danish way of saying that "the devil makes work for idle hands". The shepherdboats.com was one of the first pages I...

Very old Shepherd - any ideas?

Hello! My endeavors into the wooden boat world recently took a turn down (or up?) a lesser traveled road. I have acquired a few Chris Crafts over the last 6 months that I am planning on restoring. But then - by chance - I was offered to buy a very elegant looking 17' Shepherd. My curiosity got he be...

Re: K, KFL, Runabout, Costum Runabout, Runabout deluxe..?

Thank you very much for that information!

Although it wasn't what I wanted to hear, it's still good to now finally have some clarification on the origin of the engines. Thank you again!

Re: K, KFL, Runabout, Costum Runabout, Runabout deluxe..?

Just a little extra question... I have now received the Research Package from the Mariners Museum. It's really interesting to se the old hull card and to read through the old material. One thing puzzled me about the hull card though. On the hull card is written - in hand - the following: "ITEM #1-BU...

Re: K, KFL, Runabout, Costum Runabout, Runabout deluxe..?

Thank you very much for clarifying the different terms/suffixes. That was very informative. Also the link to the book - I might as well get that myself. Also the Hagerty link was really helpful - thanks again. As for the engine#'s and the hull#, I'm still a bit puzzled. The previous owner was - as I...

Unfortunately, the website timed out before I got to the end of my long monologue, and everything was deleted. Oh my. Today, I'm going to give it another shot - hoping this time to be more sw...
