Palmer Launch “Roxanne”
“Roxanne” is a beautiful Palmer Launch with quite a history on Lake Winnipesaukee. After its sale the new owners came to us wanting to bring some new life back into her. She was sorely in need of a new floor, some attention to the plank seams on the bottom, varnish work, some woodworking around the cockpit and some engine work.
The customer opted for Southern Yellow Pine for the floorboards, which did a great job at brightening up the interior. A new trim piece was fashioned to fit around the cockpit, the seams on the bottom were cleaned out, sealed and caulked, fresh bottom paint was also applied. We gave the brightwork a few much needed coats of varnish and painted the sides as well.
Finally the engine was gone over by our mechanic, making “Roxanne” run as good as she ever has. She can be seen motoring around the Lake Winnipesaukee and has been seen in our annual boat show as well!
