Penbo Sea-O-Ramic "The Boat To Have"

As much of an American icon as the 1957 Chevy, Amaden is the only existing fully restored Penbo 20’ (6m) runabout. Built in the early 1960s in Maine, only a handful now survive. Amaden was bought sight unseen from an original owner in 1993 and restored to a high standard over 14 years, by the owner and his enthusiastic helpers.

Penobscot Boat Works, nicknamed Penbo, was started by father and son team Carl and Bob Lane in the mid 50's and operated out of Rockport, Maine.  They built production wood clinker runabouts in three standard sizes 17', 19', and 20' and semi production trawlers.  The runabouts  were numerous, seaworthy, affordable, easy to run and easy on the eye: a large part of boating culture for middle class America. They could be found on New England’s numerous lakes – where they claimed speeds up to 45 mph with race-boat-like handling – as well as Atlantic harbours, coastlines and islands. From the original advertising copy: “Smart, Speedy, Low Cost…Turns, banks and handles like a Cup Defender, in smooth or rough waters. Arc-O-Planic hull. Won’t slide off the tightest of turns. The very latest in styling and comfort…”  She has been restored by her owner to like new condition.  During the restoration her bottom was replaced with marine ply.  This allows her to be kept on land and trailer launched and used without waiting for her to swell, a rarity among classic clinker runabouts.  The owners description of her restoration follow below.


“The only original parts are the 5 white strakes on each side and the vertical frames to which they are attached, plus 85% of the mahogany transom. She has a completely new bottom and frames, mahogany top strakes, deck & deck structure, teak sole, transom enclosure, seats, windscreen. Probably the most challenging part of the whole project was the complete rebuild of the bottom which required us to turn the boat upside down, securely brace it and then very carefully work to cut each frame where they originally overlapped, since they were completely rotten. We then fabricated new white oak frames that fit flush underneath the vertical frames and constructed and through-bolted shaped gussets at each chine location. The bottom was replaced with 3/8" (9mm) marine fir plywood as original, coated with three layers of epoxy inside and out, then scarfed together and screwed in place. All fastenings were countersunk and sealed with thickened epoxy, the bottom was barrier coated, sanded and a hard copper finish was applied. The color scheme of white topsides, mahogany sheer plank, red boot and copper bottom is a popular palette from the 1950s.

Various chrome over brass hardware were crafted to match the original. There is a new electrical system, mechanical rack & pinion steering system, compass, etc. She is basically a new boat built to current standards using modern techniques. She is powered by a 1987 Yamaha oil-injected 2-stroke outboard with less than 150 hours. Her hull and fittings are 70% varnish work, so we keep her in a covered garage to protect it.”
