1949 Century Resorter

 The following pictures show a beautifully restored 1949 Century Resorter. The owner passionately pursued this project from the beginning. A labor of love, if you will. My understanding is the boat was purchased by or consigned to the "Antique Boat Center" in Cincinnati, Ohio in 2004.

Purchase negotiations by the current owner included using the boat as an instructional aid to teach restoration techniques in a special class hosted by the Antique Boat Center last winter. This was my first fortunate encounter with this boat. I and twelve other enthusiast learned plank removal/replacement and refinishing by rebuilding the entire transom along with other significant wood fabrication.

I was indeed honored and humbled when the owner requested if I could restore the interior. Much of the original seat framing was usable. New woods were sealed before covering. The finished boat is a real head turner! Please be sure to check out all the examples of my work using the links at the top of each page. Enjoy the pics!
