1967 Lyman Cruisette – Emerging from Preservation

The Drake is a 26′ Lyman Cruisette – Hull # RC1086. The Snake Mountain Boatworks crew spent the winter preserving her to the condition she was in when she left the Sandusky, Ohio factory in 1967. Our biggest challenge was completely rebuilding her deck and gunwale framing, followed by milling out and installing seamed, plank teak decks that matched the specs of her original build sheet. In this video, the Drake is emerging from her winter quarters, gleaming and eager to once again grace the waters of Lake Champlain.
