Kettenburg K-40 Free to Good Home

Folks, I just heard of hull number three being free and is scheduled to be destroyed this week. She's a sistership to the Lady J, who's restoration I've been chronicling up here. she needs ribs replaced or repaired and some planking done. It'd be a shame to let her die.... Here are some pics.







If we could get her up here, I've got a place for her.

Ok, she was James Arness's boat originally and a custom one off build of a K-40. She was commissioned as "Seasmoke" and Marshall Dillon traded her for K-50 hull number one. These are photos of her from an ad a few years ago.

Yachtfinders / Windseakers (San Diego, CA)

The Lady J's owner is likely to take her and ship her to my yard. We'll find a new benefactor or owner later.

Well, in for a penny, in for a pound. We took the boat. In a few weeks I'll introduce y'all to "Seasmoke".

Good show (no pun intended) CharlieCobra. My boat was comissioned by the actress Dolores Del Rio. I wonder how many others have bought and are refitting or sailing boats built for famous personalities.

It is always great to hear of an old wooden boat being saved. I can't wait to see you bring her up to bristol.

Yep, looking forward to her being in the yard. That way, I can take a prospective client/owner over to the Lady J and say "Yours could look like this..."
