1961 Coast Clipper Comes Home

This is the homecoming to Newbury, MA of a 1961 Coast Clipper.   I found this boat in a barn in VT.  It took about four years of emails and negotiations before I bought her.   The boat had not left the barn in about 30 years.  During this time the local mice  turned her into a nice hotel.  A few of them actually made the move to Newbury.

This will be my next restoraton project.  Very few 19′ Coast Clippers were built.  The best information that I received placed the total build at around 20. 

As this one gets restored, I will post more pictures.
