    I am familiar with Arena Craft, use to know the son of the builder.
    They were built in Northern California, Concord I think. The builder was Dan Arena from somewhere in the east bay area of San Francisco (Contra Costa County). I'm afraid thats about all I know, haven't had any contact with Dan in over 20 years. They built a hell of a boat!

    It's just like that, ................... only different

    That would be a "Dan Arnena" boat.

    You need to contact Dan's nephew "Dan" as he is a boat dealer and has few of the Arena Craft boats and he might know where to get parts and such for them. He just finished restoring a 1957 Arnea Craft.

    Dan is located at the Loch Lomand Marina in San Rafael, CA...

    Thanks guys, I got some info that
    Dan Arena was a Speedboat racer
    from the Detroit MI area and his
    business was located in the MT.
    Clemens Mi area.
    Makes since he was also in NoCal
    as the story is Howard Arneson
    ran one of his boats.
    Yes this one is well built and
    thats why were restoring it.
