20' Swedish julle (archipelago boat)
This powerboat was built in Sweden in 1960. The lapstrake planking is oak.
Here's the boat as I received it, much weathered
We removed the cabin. The single cylinder diesel engine is out.
Dynel covered deck, new cabinsides.
Boat in driveway.
Tied up at the Rockport Boat Club float.
This is the cockpit, looking forward. The windshield is off. The side decking is off. Pretty rough.
The hull turned over for planking repairs.
Interior being installed.
Launching in Rockport Harbor
The snipa was launched coincident to a dinner at our local boat club. What a hit! Nobody had seen a boat like it. The women thought it was cute. When the guys heard the putt, putt, putt of the single cylinder Arona diesel, they had to check it out.
