I am asking you to please help me. I am searching for a good home to a Historic 1919 Mathis-Trumpy, The Grand Lady (Originally Riette II). This is one of the OLDEST TRUMPY YACHTS IN EXISTENCE! She in critical need of rebuilding and currently sits in the water in a plastic bladder in Satsuma FL. Please see JIM MOORES ARTICLE ABOUT THIS BOAT at his woodenboatrepair web site.
This historic 47' Trumpy is FREE to a good home but only to an individual who can commit to restore/rebuild her.
The owner of the Grand Lady just passed away last summer. We have only two and a half months to find the boat a home before she too slips away. I am asking you for help because I have limited contacts and knowledge of boats. This historic Trumpy needs the support of the maritime community NOW, so if you can help out in ANY way (brainstorming, referring me to people/resources/sites, forwarding this message, etc.) I would love your support.
