Last spring I posted a foto of a decrepit ACF (American Car Foundry) yacht, possibly beyond restoration. See it second one down here. Thanks to Dave for a foto of a restored 1924 ACF here. See the detail shots too, and the price!  @!@#! Dave’s note prompts me to add a few more shots of the unnamed boat from upstate New York.

Here’s a closeup of that weathered wood. Maybe because it’s winter, traditionally the time to refurbish and restore boats, but the traces of swirl and grain here makes me ache for a project–spending someone else’s $$ of course– to save this beautiful wood.

Anyone else know of shots of restored ACFs or Elcos?
