Joanne Hummel introduces us to their 1963 Owens. 28ft long teak and mahogany deck. She was ready to be put on a burn pile if she wasn’t sold. My Husband Ronald Hummel restored her to her beauty as she is today with the help of our son Justin Hummel when he was fifteen. It has been 8 years pass since she has made her Maiden Voyage. She is a Beautiful Boat and continues to make family memories.
