That IS the ole Pink Flamingo. The hull seperated during the SCOPE Poker Run about 10 miles out towards Catalina. John was unaware that she was taking on water until the passanger in the rear asked why her ankles were getting wet and if water should be sloshing on the cockpit floor. Swift action by the Coast Guard kept her from completely going down. Raise a glass for this classic. Salud!

Who is the guy that is rebuilding the burnt hull 38 Top Gun? This could be a great investment for him.

No Doubt!! 25k he'd get motors/drives/all interior (cabin/cockpit) trailer/rigging/ throttles/gauges/ etc etc

This would def. be a good purchase for him. He's done some amazing work to that boat he has now!!

I've seen boats banged up a lot worse than that and they were all fixed. I guess it's hard to tell from the pics just how bad it is...

I've seen a lot worse that were repaired and just as strong as they were before, in some cases stronger.
