History

Originally owned by Joe Calvery of Canada. Found in a corn field full of water and missing rudder/water injector. Purchased and placed in storage until last child graduates (3 more years). Through networking found builder of hull in Florida, boat may have last run in 1994. Boiler cleaned and hydostatic test was done.... would like to get it cetrified but that is not so easy. Engine was reworked and run on air, temporaily painted to persrve.
