From the Owner

Allan Weisberg familiarized himself with the wooden boat world for years before he decided to take the plunge. After hearing about a project that Peter Breen Antique & Classic Boat Co. had just acquired, he came to their shop and sparked a collaboration & friendship that is now two decades old. “On Behalf of Sam” is a 31′ Ditchburn Long Deck Launch featuring a raised- engine compartment, solid wood bucket seating, & a 5-guage grape-leaf dash. Re-constructed exactly as she was originally done from construction method  to cockpit layout, and hardware placement. Restoration was completed in 2001, and she has been a favourite of the families ever since. Named after Allans late father.
