A 1959 Thompson Bros. of Peshtigo 18'-8" Off-Shore Cabin Cruiser has seen the light of day for the first time in a couple of decades.

First photo is in Port Angeles, Washington after the boat was moved from here shed where she has been tucked away for 20 years;

Second photo is the boat in Peshtigo, Wisconsin in front of her place of birth after the 2,200 mile journey from the Olympic Peninsula. Yes, that's the old Thompson Boat factory directly behind the boat:

Darn, Andres, you don't happen to have a 24 foot one of those sitting around do you? Just sitting by fire thinking bout taking the sea coaster out for a cruise later this week; have the water to myself.

Yep, that's what happens when you build a huge building on your property. You just HAVE to fill it up. Can't let all that space go to waste after it's been paid for......

It was filled to the brim about two hours after the doors were installed. I have other "stashes" of boats!

I have three Thompson boats in my garage too - and I can park my truck in their to keep 'em company!

I sure wish you had room in there to fix my leaky Sea Coaster...............

Is there anyone near Central ILL who like to help with that project?

Here she is after being removed from the flat bed trailer that hauled her from WA to WI. This is only 200 feet away from the old Thompson Boat factory in Peshtigo.

I cleaned the boat out this morning and power washed her. She looks soooo much better. The photo is in front of her birthplace, the old Thompson Boat factory in Peshtigo. Jeff Thompson took a look at her and approved!

This boat had trained mice. They used the head for many years

As usual, another great find for you Andreas! That one looks like a keeper, except for that last picture. Any plans coming together for a Rally this summer?
