Nope. Take a closer look.
I vote Luhrs
The jalosey ( sp? ) windows remind me of a Luhrs but I never saw Luhrs this big, this old.
Your geography is close. This is not a Luhrs, but Luhrs did build wood boats. They were lapstrake.
More hints: This particular boat is carvel planked mahogany, and this model was built for only one year. The teak transom is non-original.
Silverton '57 or '58?
Wooden Silvertons were also lapstrake construction.
The only South Jersey boatbuilder I can think of still around that's old enough would have to be Post, but they're off the ocean side, inland from AC, not off the Delaware side.
Henriques, Ocean, and Viking are too recent.
Post is a good guess as they did build a very similar model in the wooden days.
Your second statement is not entirely correct. You are getting warm though!
a friend had a carvel planked Viking with triple nickle cummings, pre '79. Don't remember the length or the year, (the cockpit scuppers kept clogging with cans)
so, could it be a Viking?
No more calls, we have a winner. She is a 38' Viking, built in 1970. In 1971 and 1972 they built essentially the same boat with a wood hull and fiberglass deck and house. By 1973 this model became the Viking 40 which had gone to glass at last.
HONGKONG- You're up!
SeaEric's boat looks late '50s vintage: a la Chris-Craft, Century...but they are Midwest builders, not NJ, as per the hint. Pacemaker (the Jack Leek/Ocean connection) works, but they are not a current builder.
HONGKONG- If you want to keep this going, You're up!
Give up trying to send picture, nothing works...even asked a 12 year old...somebody else will have to dive in
Have you tried this:

A bit out of turn, but this lovely old gal was local last night enroute to Albany for a winter of refit, refurb, and repower.
Builder, name, and year? Original name and owner for bonus points?
She looks like "Gatsby" 60' Consolidated 1929. Originally "June XVI"
DING DING DING - Currently Lulu Belle, underway to Scarano's Boat Building in Albany NY to receive a pair of diesels in place of aging Chevy 350s. The present owners have given the edict "make her right" and committed to that edict in all regards. The superstructure will be separated from the hull, all wood topside gone through and replaced or refinished, and belowdecks refreshed.
The crew from Gar Wood Custom Boats are doing and overseeing the work. Nice group, very dedicated to their craft.
Here's a new photo trivia, but I don't know the answer! This big lady was anchored overnight in the Chester River (in Maryland) behind my office. She was too far away to see her name. Anyone know this beauty?
I hope they don't get in there and find (as with many of these boats) there's more problem than they want to spend money....
Speaking of old Consolidateds, anybody know what happened to Lovely Lady? She lived at Newmark's in Wilmington CA in the 80s. Story was she was MacAurthors old boat. She did have the stainless 6-110s same as from the minesweepers from WWII. Someone ran her up on the entrance at LA Light and she got a quicky patch then sat there for years, then someone bought her and took her away. She was a neat old boat.
That's Laurel, built by Delta
Thanks Ken! I figured someone would know her.
