What my 1942 17' Century Sea Maid will look like when done.
I bought my 1942 Century 17' Sea Maid about 8 yrs ago. it was considered a gray boat in other word ready for the burn pile. Century only made 43 of these boats with only 12 know to remain so i had to save it. So far I have replaced the bottom including new battens, new sides,new transom,new stern, new bow, new keel, as well as all of the inside. the engine is a Gray Marine 226 cid w/dual updraft carbs.
The neat part is i am also building a 1955 F100 with a full tilt frt end,volare frt end,396 che w/TH400. electric windows,shaved latches,frenced ant, and oak bed to pull the boat.
