  • Overview:

    1951 Hinckley Roustabout

    This is a 1951 Henry R. Hinckley & Co, 20′ Roustabout, an all-purpose round bottom launch, Design #201, Hull #826.  It was originally a purely wooden boat, built with heavy oak keel  and double steam bent oak ribs with 3/4″ selected white cedar planking.  Originally they came with a 45hp Gray Marine gas engine with fwd windshield, seating, and controls.

    This boat has been modified over the years.  It now has a center console with a Volvo AQ131 110hp gas engine and it has been professionally fiberglass/gel coated over with PVC rails and anchor pulpit.  It is a strong work boat and fisherman friendly.

    It comes with a 2011 Venture galv tandem axle trailer with good tires and bearing buddies all around.  The trailer may not have brakes or working lights.

    It is a good running reliable boat, maybe will get up around 20mph.

    $5,500 OBO.  Quite negotiable.
