I recently purchased a 1960 17 foot runabout. I have started to restore it and will probably be working on it for a year or more. This web site has been very interesting and informative. I'm sure I will be in contact with you throughout the restoration.

Very nice site. I look at it about once a month. When time permits I'll have another Lyman. I rebuilt a 15', a 1949 18'Islander and owned a 21'Inboard years back and really miss it. Thanks to Tom for keeping up the good work on Lymans.

Anybody out there know of what happened to our old 25' Lyman Cruisette Hardtop (Eye Gotcha) sold to a Auggie Kaufmann in Sandusky in the late 80's he owned a construction company called A.K. Construction. Any body know the whereabouts of this boat?

I build and restore boats here in the Adirondacks and have just taken apart a 15' Lyman from the Fifties, with a very rotten transom and some rot at the forefoot, so that I am pondering how best to get at the stem. Looks as if the keel system may be hard to take apart and replace, with the garboards clenched with steel (?) clench nails to the plywood keel-cap. Amazed that the plywood is no more rotted than it seems to be, in a 50 year old boat in the water every summer, all summer. The plywood is checked and discolored and damaged at the edges of many planks, but I don't think I need to replank extensively. Wonder if I should move the transom (rebuilt or new?) forward one thickness. Tell me how in the world a boat with nothing in the joints and seams has stayed together so long and rotted so little! Yours---Mason Smith

I have been trying to send an email to anyone who has information about Lyman boats. I have an 18 ft runabout that looks like the smaller boat on the cover of the new book "Legend of the Lakes". It has been in dry storage since the early 50's on an island. I wish to bring it home to main land 1 mile from shore. I would like to know how to prepare it for this trip and also what the value may be of a boat in mint condition. Any info would be appreciated and eagerly await a reply. Thank you

Back in this web site again looking for good stuff. Excellent web site Tom as I stated a few days ago in your question and answer pages I aquired the 1970's 26' cruisette and I'm going to restore it. the boat is currently powered with a Chrysler 318 cid 225 hp eng. I have a Chrysler Imperial marine eng sitting in the barn waiting to be put back in service again. It is a "426 D" 325 hp has dual quad AFB carbs on the motor I think this would power the boat very well. What do You think on this matter.

I bought a new 27ft Fiberglas Lyman in 1989 which is very dear to my heart. It's not a woody but looks exactly like one except for the white fiberglas transom. It is much heavier than the several 26' wood Lymans I have owned and will take anything that Lake George throws at her. The cabinet work is beautiful and is in like new condition. I am told that she is built with very expensive BRUNZEEL (sp?) plywood from Holland The company is insured with LLoyds of London and this wood is said to remain solid after being submerged in water for 10 years. Would you have any information on this BRUNZEEL wood?
