ADIRONDACK GUIDE BOAT FOR SALE

1898 15 foot spruce Grant guideboat.

Glides across the water effortlessly. Black hull/green interior. Original cane seats. Center seat and oars included. Ornate nickel plated oarlock straps. Brass stembands. 3 galvanized iron shoes on keel bottom board. 31 sets of ribs. Copper foot plates for center and forward rowing positions. Hull paint quite faded. Screws and tacks all in place except for a few. Minor planking cracks. Rowable after a good soak, but really should be properly refurbished by a qualified boatwright.

The design indicates it was made by H. Dwight Grant of Boonville, NY. The numbers 98 and 9 stamped on the stem date the boat to 1898. The dimensions correspond with Grant's talley board which are as follows:
- shell weight 38 lbs
- bottom board length 13 1/2'
- bottom board width 8 1/2
- rib spacing 5 1/16th
- 7 pairs of zero pattern ribs
- depth 11 3/4"
- stem height 23"

Includes:
- two spruce oars
- center rowing seat with original cane
- stearn seat back
- carved yoke

Grant recorded this boat was originally sold to J.A. Delanoy of New York City for use at the Adirondack League Club's Bisby Lake. The boat was used for recreation on First and Second Bisby Lakes near Old Forge, NY. Boat was removed from the Maurice (previously Lucky) camp at Bisby Lake in the 1980s. Last used on the Rondout Creek in Kingston, NY. $9,750
