Here she is! "She's a Keeper"
Named for the owners wife who purchased this for her husbands 50th birthday present!
The trailer jack has already been replaced. She is currently in our showroom awaiting the dip test to determine the cause of the excessive water infiltration.
Varnish on hull sides is "crazed" or "crazing" These small random cracks are the beginning of the breakdown of the varnsh coat. Left alone these will evenually.... no.... very soon .... allow water to infiltrate the finish and under the finish and start releasing the varnish making a complete strip and refinish necessary!
We recommend the use of a webbing style lifting strap to be used in the lifting ring. The softer bronze lifting ring can be deformed under the layer of hard chrome plating. When this deformation occurs the hard chrome plating will be cracked and will release from the softer substrate. These straps are cheap... $30 or so and prevent damage to the lifting ring!
The transom had been refinished and the graphics changed. Note the stain and or varnish left on the stainless trim.
When the transom was refinished the exhaust trim rings would have been removed. Note the "squozage" of sealant in screwholes and around the copper exhaust pipes!
We can erase any evidence of the dock jumping out in front of this boat!
