1954 Penn Yan Captivator Preservation Nears the Finish Line

Preserving her has been extremely challenging, but this 1954 Penn Yan Captivator is finally nearing the finish line. While all three of us have worked on this project, John has taken the lead and executed most of the structural work involved in reshaping her hull; and fabricating and installing her new keel, transom framing and transom, ribs, athwart braces, splash rails, rub rails and much, much more.

As is evident in this clip, all that hard work is returning substantial dividends in the form of a stunning outcome. Shortly we will begin installing her new seating and hardware, racing towards the target completion that will have her back with her owners by Labor Day.
