Description
She spent the first 3 years that I owned her being lovingly restored to better than original condition. She shows in the "preserved" class as more than 90% of her original wood remains. The original wood includes but is not limited to the lapstrake bottom that does not leak-ever. The wood that was replaced was the windshield frame and at that time the glass was replaced with safety glass.
The engine was overhauled by Drake engines in Rochester, NY. During that process it was discovered that there were no cracks in the block or head and that there was virtually no wear on any of the internal components so it was reassembled with all new "original" size parts.
All wiring was replaced as well as installation of a new electric fuse panel.
12V generator and starter were overhauled to original specs. The only place I deviated from original was the installation of a "Pertronics" electronic ignition. The exhaust elbow is not original but the 2-1/2" full length copper exhaust pipe remains creating a most pleasant tone.

She captures the attention of everyone wherever we go.
