Black Dog Salvage

Hi Phil,
I found your website while researching a vintage Neal Hydroplane that we recently acquired – please see attached for photos. This came from a home in Fairmont, WV and came with a racing trophy from the 50s. Does anyone know if there is a market for this? If so, would you have any advice on a value or the best place to list it for sale? Any feedback would be much appreciated!
Thanks for your time,

Dayton Testing 2013

Vintage hydros ready to go in on Eastwood Lake in Dayton. The weather was perfect – slight wind and temps in the mid 60s made for a spectacular setting. This is the first time in many years that Dayton had 2 cranes available to move the boats in & out of the water faster.
