Just parted ways with my first light tackle baby a 1988 Alcar 16...god I have a lot of memories on her. 65hp on about as flat a fiberglass bottom as you were ever gonna get. Hydraulic tilt good for moving around the Cape Cod flats down to about 14" of water.

But she has gone to a good marine mechanic who is gonna breath new life into her after about a decade of suspended animation in my side yard.

I've had a lot of fun restoring this boat but sadly have to let it go. Too much work owning two boats!

I had a 22-1/2 footer which I rebuilt. I loved that boat and would cruise up to Mount Desert Island and back from Scituate Ma every summer plus Natucket and the Vinyard as well.
Great memories, I always wanted a bigger one like yours. She's a beauti!

That memco is a sweet ride, I wasn't familiar with that builder. I share your sentiment on the reactions wood boats usually get around here, but frankly don't mind because that's why I was able to pick up my boat for about 1/3 of what a similar fiberglass boat would cost.

The Albatross boats are charter boats out of Hatteras, NC. I believe they were built by Milton Willis in Marshallerg, NC.

Thanks squid kid, those boats are awesome. Built the first one for $550, wouldn't that be nice today. I also thought it was neat how the article talked of him heading "Downeast" to get the boat built, I didn't know NC had a downeast but it's quite ironic that the style definitely has a mixture of Maine downeast and carolina features. I know what boats I'll be taking out if I ever make it down to NC for some giant fishing.

Lymans were made near where I grew up in Sandusky, OH. Many still own and cherish them. They eat Lake Erie nasty up. Great boats. Shame the fiberglass hulls never popped out of the mold properly. That cost Lyman and they eventually folded. A friend I grew up with owns the first fiberglass Lyman and has it for sale.
The older Lymans without the bow flare look funny, but sliced thru the waves like a hot knife thru butter.

How does yours hold up in the salt water? I'm curious as I don't think Lyman built with a salt water environment in mind? (Hull, engine, cleat, and other misc hardware?)
