The varnish was re done this winter by the professionals at Woodies Restorations in Russell Springs, KY and as you can see, she looks absolutely amazing!

They removed all hardware, did all of the wet sanding, applied three new coats of varnish, did the re-striping, etc. The transmission was replaced this winter by the same company as well along with replacing points and completely tuning up the engine.

In 2000, under the previous owner, every plank was removed, planed and replaced if needed. A new Rayco fuel tank was added, modern gauges as well. and a new 5200 new solid bottom was applied. In a nutshell the boat was completely refurbished

It also comes with a custom, fitted cover that has the side and rear flaps for complete protection of the boat.
