Thanks
The boat is a 2001 it is 37 ft. and was built by Fred Heim. I'm in the middle of re-varnishing it.
The PT boat engine was way ahead of it's time.

Great to see, but sad to see as well at the same time, knowing not many of the greatast generation remain with us.

That boat is and when finished will be a real eye catcher. I'd love to hear it running.
