Thanks John-
Any idea what became of the Sam McKinney-built boat that Jim Ballou owned?

Brian Gage was given the task of selling Jim Ballou's boat collection, and
given a boat for his efforts. It's a 14' Old Town wood and canvas dinghy
that Brian believes dates from 1924 or 1925. It was originally sold to The
Oaks amusement park by the Selwood Bridge in Portland for use as a livery
boat, and has some rare factory options. The boat has some rot in the
transom and possibly in the stem. The canvas is in good shape, but any
repair would probably involve replacing it. Brian is offering the Coots
first dibs. Make him a good offer. (see attachments)
