“MOJO” is a 1958 16′ Century Resorter owned by Joe and Kathy Lepley of Annandale, Minnesota.  The Lepleys enjoy living and boating on Lake Sylvia which is one of many beautiful lakes in the Annandale area. The Resorter was purchased as a “project boat” some years ago with the goal of completing the restoration in two years.  Like many amateur restorations, the job took considerably longer.  Although the boat was launched and successfully operated this summer, there’s a “punch list” of items to troubleshoot and fine tune before next year’s boating season!  The restoration included replacing the original bottom, refinishing the entire boat and repowering with a later model V-8 engine with a Velvet Drive transmission. The name “Mojo” is from a popular blues song in the late 50’s recorded by musician Muddy Waters entitled “Got My Mojo Workin”. The picture was taken by family member near the end of Joe’s first cruise in Mojo.  Note the big grin on the Skipper’s face!
