The boat is a Mathews 42 foot bridge deck cruiser. It wieghs 16 tons empty and is built entirely of oak framing and mahogany. It required the sort of maintenance one would expect if you threw a large cabinet in the water for six months of the year. I worked on it through the winter on weekends at the boat yard and for two full weeks of “vacation” prior to launch. It was a fine vessel and I am sorry to see it gone but the maintenance requirements were too much – but fun nevertheless and I never needed to go to a gym for exercise.
