Just figured out how to post these. Here is link if anyone wants to take a look. The 65 Nauset is in the middle of restoration now. Trailer has been completed, motor is running again, inside buffed out, and hull just regelcoated today. Will post more pictures later. Love this site, visit it daily.

If the pitures of the '66 Nauset and the '65 are one and the same, then you have done a great job. That engine must have been an interesting project! Where on Earth was that kept? It looks like a "barner". I'm sure you'll enjoy the hell out of it.

Nauset is gorgeous. The re-hab looks like the hull is great shape.

Good luck.

How does that bimini top work out for you. My only concern is that I like to use that front bridge for casting from while Muskie fishing. Looks like the bimini takes that area away.

How difficult is it to remove? Is this a five minute put in take out procedure?

The 65 and 66 are different boats. I will post some pictures of the 65 restoration project later today. The motor restoration was mostly wiring, that age got the best of. The motor had only been used for 4 years before it found the barn.

As for the Bimini on the 66, it removes easily by removing to screws. That about a 3-5 minute job.


PS I have corrected the problem with the link

I really enjoyed your photos. Both boats. I would be interested in the story ofhow you located this boat--any why it sat in the barn for almost two decades (did you look around? was there another whaler in the old barn?

Keith, A friend that knows I like old whalers told me about it. He is in the Boat Trailer Building business and the Nauset owners wife called him to get a value as they had sold the farm and were moving to south Texas. The reason it sat in the barn so long was the owner gave up fishing and took up hunting and dogs. He and some friend took it out of the barn about five years ago to began the clean up process but decided it was more work than they wanted and put it back. The owners son was not interested in the project either.

I did look the barn over real good looking for all the parts. Found all but a couple minor things.

Today I finish the final gelcoating on the hull. If I may say so it looks great. Lots of work though. I have sanded the sides and bottom 9 times now. No major structural work just filling gelcoat time cracks and fairing.

I will post some additional pictures next week of the progress.

I love these old boats. They just dont die. You can fix almost anything on them.
