This is a sweet twelve foot sailing dingy built by Shrew & Burnan of South Bristol, ME in 1976. Meticulously maintained, it spent most of its life in a boathouse. All materials are first class and extremely well found. Copper rivet fastened Spanish cedar planked with oak frames. Many extras and ready for sail or rowing.

The boat is reasonably offered at $3,000.00 to the discerning buyer. Any contact should be addressed to David Peterson at the Wooden Tangent 508-758-9662.
