Wood Boat Restoration of the 1928 27 foot Hacker Craft.
This 1928 wooden Hacker Craft was definitely a diamond in the rough. Once we got the Hacker Craft turned over it was time to remove the bottom planks to gain access to the ribs. We soon realized we needed all new deck plants as well. The 150 hp Hall Scott motor was a bit under the weather buy by boiling out the engine, a new coat of paint and a detail it was ready to go back in. We replaced the exterior planks, removed the zebra stripe from the steering wheel and restored her back to her original beauty and capped it off with 24 karat gold leaf lettering.
The Hacker Craft was ready for the water and was awarded Best Engine of Show.
