Homemade Burchcraft

Owner: Scott

I was able to identify and contact the second owner of OR 28 TL (the mini cabin cruiser) and he provided me some interesting information. The boat is a homebuilt, constructed by a fellow who worked at the Tillamook Creamery for many years as the head mechanic. Owner #2 said that the original owner had wanted a bigger cabin than what was available on 17 ft. boats at the time, so he made it himself to his own specifications. He also said that he thought that the original owner had based much of his plans upon Burchcraft boat design.
