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 t_thieler@yahaoo.com 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.

Sincerely,

Jim Oxenford”

    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 https://iceboat.me/2017/12/17/lingwes-on-plymouth/
