Looking good Steve...........missed some of your updates as we just got back from our 2 weeks in the Canadian bush with no phone or internet.

Drew hooked into a 42" pike (his personal best) on a trip to portage lake & it's off to the taxidermist this week.

Be sure to post up a bloody deck picture when you get her rebroken in !

Glad to see it back to it's former glory (or even better !).

Tom

Thumbs up

Oh Wow!!!! I just came across this thread today, and have spent the last 3 hours reading through it. This has been like a good book, with all sorts of emotions... What an incredible restoration you did to that boat! She's absolutely beautiful! And then talk about a kick to the nuts, when I got to the part where she was stolen and stripped!!!!

I'm so glad you've gotten her back and will be able to put her back in shape! More pictures, please! She's one of a kind and world famous now!

Thanks for the ride, and best of luck in the future with her!

Thanks for taking the time to read the thread.
Yes, this old boat has more stories to tell than most.
Going to put in back in the water again this week.

Sea trial on Wednesday.
Chomping at the bit.

It truly has been a long Summer.

Fish Beware.

Boat is back home from Parker Yacht.

So impressed the with job they did, including help from BOE, Wycap and Gemlux.

I would totally recommend Parker Yacht in Ft. Lauderdale to anyone needing service.

They can take on any boat related project from small to large.

Not advertising, then Ole would need to be paying me.

Very pleased.

Glad things are back to normal! I haven't been following, did you put a security system in it?
