This boat, Two Fools, was built by Eugene Walls of Southwest Harbor in 1969 as a working lobster boat. In 2008, she was purchased by her present owner, who outfitted her for pleasure use. Her 2008 Yanmar diesel engine has low hours, and she has been gently sailed since being installed. She has been very well maintained and has had repairs when needed. The builder had a good eye for a graceful sheer and nice proportions. She was locally built, and is a classic good-looking Downeast pleasure boat awaiting a new owner!
