It may have been a "new" used engine that was installed 2 years ago.

If you're in Virginia or nearby, there are a lot of boats to look at from Annapolis to Deltaville...
Wood boat with water was confusing to me too. It's a pretty boat but the hull almost looks like ferro to me. I'd never get a wooden boat in Southern waters, but up there it would be okay.

If one is in the market for a boat like this that will never let you down she merits a visit and thorough inspection.

I believe many of the early Dickerson's were built in wood. I'm pretty sure a broker I worked for once told me he had cruised in one of wood construction.

From the photos, it's not planked so would it be cold-molded marine ply?

CaptWho: A wood boat in the Great Lakes? I know a few old-timers* (from before 1950) but these are much-cherished family heirlooms.

Fresh water means boats rot much faster. Anything left for dead in a boatyard for a few years will be scrapped; few people have the skills to rebuild them.

*Incidentally, off topic, if anyone gets a chance to visit the Antique Boat Museum in Clayton, NY, you should go. It's amazing. (Unfortunately, we can't visit right now, the US border is still closed).

Re: Boats Less Than $30K Recent Noteworthy Finds

I may be wrong. I thought I was wrong once - but I made a mistake !

There is an owner's group at dickersonowners.org

Looking at the info there I saw no mention of a wood version. Maybe someone once made the same hull design in wood under a different name ?

Boats Less Than $30K Recent Noteworthy Finds

My old gymnastics coach bought a new Dickerson 40 in the late 1960s or early 1970s. I think it was one of the last wooden hulls they produced. A beautiful boat of a traditional design. Comfortable simple interior but straight backed seating in the style of Herreshoff. It was impeccably built and finished. And it sailed well for a Chesapeake Bay cruiser.

Sailboatdata.com has the Dickerson 40 built from 1968 to 1974 wood (strip planked).

I thought all Wharrams had lashed beams? No topless chicks in the pictures either, so is this a Wharram wannabe?
Cheers
