I found the boat in Montreal, Canada and did a full 100% restoration at Strouts Point Wharf in South Freeport, Maine. The boat is currently in “Palm Beach” condition and maintained by Snead Island Boat Works , Palmetto, Florida.
I kept to the original design with upgraded systems. There is a full detail and photos of the restoration that cost approx $150,000.
The engines are 400 hp Mercruisers. I cruise at 25 knots but she can get up to 35. The extra sized fuel tank added to allow for better range. The boat is used exclusively in the Florida West Coast ranging from Fort Myers to Cedar Key. I was planning to make a trip to the Keys this year.
