We do see them up here on Lake Champlain...beautiful works of art...but most are in dry storage and polished regularly.

classic boats are like true classic cars, buy them completely done and perfect.  Otherwise welcome to MONEY PIT.   They will eat you alive in upkeep costs, especially when it comes to Varnish and these use a varnish like EPIFANES from Holland , quart is $50 here , as thats what i used on the wood parts for 35 roadster build SHAZZBOTT.

I would think the boats value would be  if it has original engine and they used a variety of engines besides their own V8.

They have events at Lake Tahoe where lots of old wooden boats of all sizes are on display and cruising around. It is really something to see.
