Rum Runner, the 1948 17 1/2 foot Century Seamaid with the Rocket Deck Pattern ( Hull number 48Q70) and Gray marine African Mahogany with Blonde inlay Striking Red Fireball 6.
The 74 year old Barn find, is in remarkable condition as it remains, lovingly cared for, but officially unrestored.
Maxine Wirth and her husband owned the Classic Mercury Boat Dealership in Klamath Falls, Oregon in the 40s, 50s and 60s.
This Century was her personal boat, She used it waterskiing on Klamath Lake on the weekends and in the 70s moved her to a new boathouse on Lake of the woods where it remained in weekend service for decades.
in 2019 the engine was removed and rebuilt and the carburetors rebuilt and re-jetted to sea level.
The Rum Runner remains in seaworthy condition and is maintained as necessary.
This remains a true Classic with extensive provenance and thick dossier of records, bills and shows attended.
