Default "Little Mount" on CraigsList

What a coincidence. My son and I were walking around Center Harbor in the rain this past weekend and noticed the "Little Mount" on a trailer with a "For Sale" sign on it by the Mount Washington drydock. We took a closer look and it was as a little sad. The wood work is rotten and peeling in places, the steel is looking a bit rusty, the whole thing just looked neglected. Having seen her in her glory days motoring out on the lake over the years this was too bad.

My son just sent me a link to CraigsList with the listing for the Little Mount. Here's hoping that it falls into good hands.

A great hobby for the guys that built it. But that is the end of the story.

Anyone know what the purpose of constructing this vessel was?

It was probably something along the line "If you build it they will come..." It's a cool looking boat, and would probably take quite a few weekends to bring back to a decent state but I'm not sure their is much of a market for it. Too bad.

I think the guy who built it had/has a place ON the lake..over by the Wolfeboro docks..with a "Lift". I think he just decided to build a ""Model" of the Mount for his own amusement. ...I'm guessing the "Model" is 1/4 scale...maybe prior to the Full Scale Mount adding 20 feet.

Anywho: RC plane modelers build in 1/4 scale all the time....OR some percentage of Full Scale.

I build scale model boats...to "Fine Scale"....For Museum Display rather than for the water......Just to see if I can do it. NB

Default ....& the asking price is?

First thing I noticed is there is no price attached to this 'for sale' item.

Trying to sell a used boat without placing a price on it is at least a little bit unusual. If the seller cannot place a price on it, then what's what with this? Like, what the heck is going on......hey......there's no price listed in this ad.

An ad like this without a price is about as helpful as some old stone wall that's been out in the middle of the New Hampshire forest, somewhere, for the last hundred and fifty years, since the wall last served as a wall.

Is this price correct........what.......oh........it has no price?

I hate to say it (I REALLY hate to say it ) but I agree with FLL on this one. How is anybody looking at the ad going to know the price? The whole world doesn't read this forum and wouldn't just "know" that.

Yes, the Little Mount is For Sale, and it does need some TLC, but it realistically could be a great winter project and ready for the water by Spring 2012. Mostly Cosmetic issues, I have personally been through the whole boat. I know it cost 6 figures to build and the last asking price was in the $25k range, however with that said, I am sure reasonable offers would be considered. I personally hope that a lake enthusiast, will pick up this gem and keep her going. It is also on ebay with a Buy it Now of $25000 So go bid, and take her home!

I saw the Little Mount last week. I noticed the NH Registation number on the bow is exactly One digit higher than the full scale Mount. ....NH 0002 MT.

I've watched the fate of the Little Mount the last few years, and have though several times about potentially purchasing it.

My honest question though is "what the hell would you DO with it?"

It's too big to just have hanging around as an extra boat most places.

Upkeep seems like it can be a little demanding. There don't appear to be any facilities on it, and from what I've seen of people riding on it, the layout doesn't look very conducive to anything other than operating short tours, but if someone wants a tour of the lake wouldn't they just go on the real Mount?

I just can't figure out how this thing is worth even $5000 beyond basic scrap value. It's one of those labors of love that is only really truly appreciated and valued by its maker.

Repeating an idea I have heard before.

As New Hampshire's number 1 industry is tourism.

As the visitors to New Hampshire are an important source of tax revenue.

As the Lakes Region is an important part of that tourism.

As the Mount Washington is an Iconic part of the Lakes Region.

As the Mini Mount is an incredibly eye catching object (when in good shape)

The Mini Mount could serve a cost effective service if it had a permanent berth, if put in an a proper setting at the Manchester Regional Airport. It could help attract attention to a section of further information to all of the wonderful things to do in the State.

The current owners would benefit as well from the ongoing publicity and sales presence.

Sure beats rotting away in the parking lot.

I remember seeing it motoring around the Wolfeboro bay area 7-8 years ago. It would fit 4-5 people and be moving right along. I also remember the guy who built it had the house on the water next to Wolfeboro town docks. What happened to him, the little Mount belongs in the NH boat Museum in my opinion. All good things must come to an end.

with Lake Trout that the Little M/S should be donated to the NH Boat Museum. It would be a nice gesture on the owners part.

I think it would take up most of the boat museum!

I would love to see it on the lake again. But what an upkeep headache!

Last I knew the ex owner still lives there. I understand he still has projects.

The Millers wanted to retire from the upkeep of the Little Mount.

In a perfect world, the Little Mount would be taken over by the NH Boat Museum, but they just didn't have room for it.

Using it commercially is not viable from an insurance and cost effective point of view.


It is sad that being outside these past years have really taken a toll on her. Hopefully someone will come to her rescue.

I sincerely hope that someone on the Lake that would value and enjoy her, is the buyer…

The State of NH should buy the Little Mount. It could be trailered all over New England to fairs and festivals to promote tourism in NH. The Barbie and Ken dolls posed onboard have to be worth at least $5K. Any NH Representatives or Senators listening?

This is probably the best idea. But sadly NH is broke. All state budgets have been slashed. Possibly a private government partnership.

Rumor has it that my wonderful neighbor just purchased the Mini Mount. He couldn't stand to see it deteriorate any further. I can only confirm at this time that it will remain in the lakes region. Now I just need to convince him to launch it!

Perhaps it's time for NH to get real and institute a sales tax or (gasp) income tax.

Absolutely, considering that all the states with sales and/or income taxes are really booming right now. California, Michigan, Florida, etc.

The economy sucks across the board. Newer and higher taxes have seldom been a cure for an overall lack of employment and GDP.

I can't help with winter storage but am willing and able to refurbish this great piece of Lake lore.

I have inspected her and know that she needs metal work.

Glad to hear she found a good home. I bet there are a lot of people who would volunteer their talents to help with fixing her up. Maybe bartering rides or the chance to drive her in exchange for labor would work?

Looking forward to seeing the Little Mount back out on the Big Lake.

I'm thinking that the boat on trailer is about 60ft long, 8ft wide, maybe 12ft high as a quick guess.

I have some mill space but it is in Manchester and the 12 ft height might be a problem.The bigger problem is access into the space.I just measured and there is not a way to get a 60 ft trailer through the doors.Sorry.

Just a thought. I am trying to think of a large, empty building, in the Laconia area that might be available to house and work on the mini-mount.

I know of one in Plymouth that might fit the bill, but am coming up empty for Laconia.

It would seem to me, that an EMPTY building owner might consider reduced/free rent just for the publicity and human interest angle.

Glad this boat is being restored. It certainly deserves to be. KUDOS to the new owner.

Thanks for the heads up. We need to find a Mini enthusiast that may have some extra space. The boat needs to be moved before snow flies. The search is on!

Best thing to do is go out to Center Harbor with a 100' tape measure from Sears......OR.... Heaths Hardware ..ON Site. My boat is in my garage and INCHES are important. I have to remove two 3/4 inch thick moldings from the garage door frame which remove width from the entry..to clear the width of the trailer fenders.. NB

Thanks for the offer Misty but I think we already have someone lined up. I'm at Center Harbor now and just measured the overall length, 56ft not 60 ft, won't be needing such a large building after all.

I think there were a few issues with how the hangers at Laconia airport were being used a few years ago. Seems to me that only airplane related items etc could be in those hangers. I'll check it out, keep the suggestions coming.

Is it inappropriate to ask what the boat sold for? I can't see it on ebay anymore.

Talking Fabulous!

Fargo, thanks for spreading this wonderful news!!! I'm smiling so big that there are tears of happiness leaking out of my eyes.

I sure hope that the Little Mount will be able to stay on the lake and we'll be snapping pictures of her for years to come!

I also hope that the new owner will take our wonderful Forum friends up on their offers to help restore this lovely lady. You guys are the best!

Please ask your neighbor and any helpers to take lots of pictures during the rehabilitation to post here for us. That way we all can come along for the restoration ride too. What a happy day.

Default Great news!!!

Thank you Fargo, I agree with RG this is the best news!!!

I have been thinking about alternatives for a while now, went to take a look at her last spring with Misty Blue, and have been very worried that the LIttle Mount would end up as scrap and I would have a guilty conscience about it forever. Please thank your neighbor for making it happen, and of course I'm ready and willing to help with the restoration. And if they ever need a spot to moor her, I happen to know someone with a 100' long deep water dock on Pine Island

cheers! -PIG

The ink is just barely dry on the purchase and sale of the Mini and PIG has stepped up with an offer for a dock! I feel we're making progress. Still searching for winter storage.

Actually it is an offer for a mooring. PIG is awesome. Misty Blue too. She would look amazing moored off Pine Island and it the cruisers on the Mount would really get a kick out of it.

NHBUOY may have a very good idea of looking for a business that has an empty building that would give them publicity from the human interest angle. One of the local marinas perhaps? Getting pictures of their facility, publicity and name recognition is priceless.

We checked out the hanger at Laconia Airport...as suspected they only allow airplane related items to be stored there. Maybe we could make the Mini an aircraft carrier.

Things are fixi'n to change at Laconia Airport at any time now!.. I would also be in favor of granting The Mini Mount a special home there for refurbishing, or maybe a joint NH Air Force Naval operation.

I think that her presents would add much to the LAA's vocabulary, ( besides, just NO )!

Fargo,

Did you try and talk to anyone at the Multonborough Airport?

The other thing to do is to look around for Vacant warehouse space and find out who owns the building and talk to them... You may find someone that has a vacant warehouse, and for the sake of having the space used my offer a good deal for the winter.... especially if they are a fan of the mini mount...

I contacted Moultonborough airport, since they are privately owned they can store anything. Right now their hangers are full with planes. We have lots of feelers out, Roche Realty is on the hunt for us also.

How about checking with Irwins? They had the boat stored there for a while and have a lot of storage buildings. Nice publicity angle and tie to their history? Jack might be interested.

Default Shrink Wrap

Shrink Wrapping is a Killer for any boat you want to keep "healthy". In spite of the "Vents" offered (At extra cost each..) to ventilate the boat.

The problem is the boat doesn't breathe. It's like a greenhouse. It warms up in the daytime when winter sunlight is available. At night the atmosphere inside.. cools down and condensation forms on every surface in the boat. Repeat cycle every day... ALL winter. It's your boat..

Canvas is a much better alternative... and it breathes. BTW: Canvas can be used over and over every year. Shrink Wrap is ONE Time only. Price it. Just sayin... NB

Trexlers showroom might present some challenges, from the aspect of getting the vessel in and out... They also I believe use the showroom in the winter for storage.... however as mentioned it never hurts to try...

I would call the track in Loudon and see if they have room in the garage area. I know the garages are large and they offer winter storage for other things, maybe they will help with the mini.

Miles Marine moved the Little Mount to Dave's Motorboat Shoppe in Gilford this morning. Things went as planned. The new fabric structure should be arriving in three weeks so the boat will be covered for the winter.

Good thing the Mini is pretty weathertight because we didn't get it covered before last night's storm. Appears to be holding up well. Just need to bail out some water before it gets much colder.

We are waiting for the temporary fabric shelter to arrive. Looking for a few volunteers to help us erect it in about three weeks. If you can help us please give my neighbor Doug a call at 603-387-8625. I'll buy coffee, maybe lunch depending how the shelter looks once it's up.

I can't take much credit here on the Mini's progress, Doug who actually owns the boat has been on the hunt making things happen. He's the hammer, I'm the yammer. Hope to have more yammer later in the week.

Fargo,

What is Doug's Plan moving forward with the Mini Mount.... I assume not much will happen during the winter, but I could be wrong if the shelter is big enough to have room to start some work....

I assume that this point, a full inspection of the mechanical is in order. As well as a start on the rehab of the entire vessel.....

Depending on what work is needed, I am willing to lend a hand if one is needed. This is such a gem for the area, that restoration is worth the time, to get it gliding back across the lake again.

Probably right that not much will get done this winter. Have been cleaning, scraping, organizing etc, blessed by nice weather. Shelter appears to be about ten days out, with that up and boat in we'll both rest for a while. Next year will begin exterior refurbushing, don't know as i am the one to get her back on the lake but will do my best to ensure her safekeeping.

Default Just a Thought...

Not to stick my nose in... but

I'd be willing to help put together a "Mini Golf" Tournament for the Spring of 2012 to raise some funds to help get the Mini Mount cleaned up and back on the water.

http://www.dojiggy.com/s/Sports-Fund...sing/index.cfm

I'm sure we could get one of the many Mini Golf places around the lake to donate a day, (or a special rate) for an event.

I'd also bet we could get plenty of sponsors from the many local businesses that this forum has helped out with our business.

It would take 5 or 6 "volunteers" to canvas businesses for sponsorships, talk to the Mini Golf owners, and be responsible for registering the players and collecting the money.

Just a Thought... Could be lots of fun.. Mini Golf for a Mini Mount!

Sign the ABC up to help!!! (I wouldn't mind playing also)


P.S. I have used http://www.chipin.com/ for other charities I am sure there are many websites like it but this one seems to be very easy.

Default Mini Golf

Mini golf for the Mini Mount sounds like a good idea. We are open to most any suggestion so keep the creative juices flowing. I still have some decals left so let me know if you'd like one.

Default Mini Mount Decal

Rumor has it the Mini Mount Decal will significantly add to the trade-in value of vehicles and watercraft. A recent drive down to Weymouth and back to Laconia had lots of fellow motorists forming their lips in an "O". Could be my bad haircut but I'd like to think it was more about the shiny new Mini Mount decal on my bumper.

Default Decals

I'm on my second batch of decals so there's still time to request one. I was hoping to hear from a Mini enthusiast either from Canada or Europe to help us spread the word. Send me a private message if you're in need of a decal.

The above is a true Vice Admiral for all the work and time he is taking to help get things roll for the Mini Mount.
Thanks Fargo
