I know its wood, but you hate to see an old boat with nice lines end up like this. ... 9118649508#!/photo.php?fbid=256080734416013&set=pu.247079118649508&type=1&theater

No boat lives forever. Death paid a visit to that hull a long time ago.

Yeah, we were talking about this one over at the Wooden Boat Forum. A regular member there lives up on the Northern Neck and went over and checked the boat out. His conclusion was: "she's so rotten, you could eat her with a spoon."

As you can see from the pics, she's terribly hogged.

I think she's a long-gone goose.
