WOW! That boat looks terrific. Nice job on the rebuild and compliments to all those who lent a helping hand/part/tool/input.

Looks great!

Hold the phone ---I didn't think it was THAT close to where you lived. Maybe there are a couple of nice investigators that will be stopping by to say hi in the near future.

I can only imagine what it looked like and what he said. I kept telling him that he should have tried harder to talk me out of doing it.

Good eye. Really amazes me how many people recognize it from him. It was called "Fidelity" and is now in his museum in DC. They had to cut the roof open and lower it into place. Pics is from another board member that has one, "Open72".

Was that always a single engine boat, or was it converted? I've never seen another 28 open with a single.

I think I remember when that was stolen. was that the boat behind another boat, and they moved it out of the way to steal yours?

Nope. They all were originally twins. I am the second owner. The first owner (a former CEO of CRT) converted to a single back in 1999.
