Mystery Boat Needs To Be Identified

While we wait to see what the weather event will do for / to the lakes over the next 24 hours take a moment to read the following email and take a look at the photo. This gentleman is psyched to have this boat and is wondering what exactly it is! I have to say I’m also curious as to what the building was used for.

In any case email me at if you can identify the boat. Winner gets bragging rights!

Here is the email from the new owner:

“I recently became the owner of this boat below and I was wondering if you have any idea how old it is or any other information on it. It has a wooden mast and the boom and sail is visible behind it on the pipes. The cross brace/leg goes in the rear and the steering runner attaches at the front with a large bolt. Any information would be appreciated.

    Looks like a Palmer tandem skeeter from the 1930’s. It is sitting in a cow barn.

    Very cool boat. No idea what it is.
    But, I think the building was a cow barn.

  5. To my untrained eye this looks like a Lingwes craft. Bill Buchholz restored one to better than new a year ago
