SPK IV is my Baby! It needs a new loving home that will exercise it, but I can’t bring myself to that point. It’s my “Art Object” I guess. LOL!”
Here’s one more Mischief …Frank Allen sent in these pictures of his Boston Whaler along with this information:
I bought mine from a guy in New Hampshire planning to do a cosmetic upgrade and get it on the water. As I examined the boat I discovered a weak transom which I had to rebuild before getting onto the Red exterior, upholstery, and new plexiglass for the wind screen.
We would like to see a picture of your boat in the next Tuesday Tour of Classic Boats.
