Our Cabin Cruiser, “MAJIC” click for blog

at dock, july15_resized

It looks like our “shake-down cruise” will begin next week, and I’ll begin blogging.  MA is for Mary, JI for Jim, and C for Cliff—“MAJIC”.  She is a Richardson wooden Cabin Cruiser, built in 1957.   Jack found her in Wooden Boat magazine and Cayuga Wooden Boatworks have renovated her beautifully. Now she  is in the water for the first time in 5 years and ready to take on the 25 canal locks before reaching the Hudson.  And then on to the Vineyard!

Richardsons were built between 1907 and the 1960s–classic boats. There may be sixty of them still afloat.                                  cabinseating_resizedHere’s the cabin
