I have a mostly-restored 1908 17' closed-gunwale Old Town HW (CS grade) for sale - life got in the way of finishing it unfortunately. It has been stripped, some ribs and planks replaced, varnished, canvassed, seats re-caned, and partially painted. Still needs to finish the painting, top and side rails, and reattach the seats and stembands. Located in Greenfield, MA.

That's a very good price, I think, for a mostly restored 1908 Old Town.

I spent a good amount of time in and around Greenfield 30-40 years ago, the (former?) HoJo of which was a meeting place for the Berkshire and Connecticut AMC whitewater clubs. I also always enjoyed a radio station there that played quirky stuff like oldies that were the flip sides or cover bands of big hits.
 
I'll agree, that seems like a very good price. If it weren't for the fact that I'd have 1/2 that in gas just picking it up (& I've got too many irons in the fire already), I'd probably grab it. Hopefully you'll find someone to finish the restoration.
