This 26ft. special wide launch,hull #480 is one of the finest, if not the absolute best example of a restored Fay & Bowen that can be found today.

Because this boat was originally a salt water verison, even though it never was in salt water, it was restored to those standards. This means that all the hardware is triple plated brass including the strut, rudder, skeg, prop and exhaust. The original engine was removed long ago and replaced with a 45 hp Grey marine 4 cylinder engine wnich was totally rebuilt. Because of this weight reduction the bow rides a little higher and dryer than with the original motor. Another improvment was the adding of a new aluminum gas tank built to the original shape and size but with baffles and a venting system that cannot be seen because it has been incorporated in with the bilge port. To further enhance the boats safety all the wiring connections have been soldered and grounded to make everything correspond to today's standards. One final addition were stainless steel lifting rings. This enables one to launch or cradle the boat without the use of straps, thus avoiding marring the finish on the sides. These lifting rings can only be seen with the removal of the floor boards so as not to detract from the original look of the boat. It is this attention to detail, from the seventeen coats of varnish to all the screws facing in the same direction that make this boat a great prize to any collection. A truly must see boat.
