SOLD: 10ft Lapstrake Acorn Dinghy with Oars


Won at a boat in a raffle from Cowichan Maritime Museum last October, this boat has only been in the water once. It’s a beautiful 10 ft Lapstrake Acorn Dinghy with 9 ft Oars. The value placed on the boat by the builder was $8000.00. The owners already store an 18ft Tracker boat and only have a single car garage, so sadly it needs to go.
