Telltale Kettenburg construction. Bent oak ribs on one foot centers. The sedan was built in 1938.

Not only is the engeineering and construction pretty to behold, but there are the details...

The Sun Harbor neighbor of the sedan was this floating "shack". This structure was the yard watchman's abode for the Kettenburg Marine.

Dandy little details like the small chains used to hold the portlights open for air circulation.

The view forward

A monel galley. We suspect that a lot of fish got cleaned at this sink.

The wheel and instruments. What look to be original stampings in the wood label switches.

Here's David again checking out the 3 cyl. Yanmar. The sedan has what appears to be a "planeing" (spelling error?) deserving of another 80 or so horsepower. David is talking about locating a small block V-8 diesel here instead of the Yanmar.
