Default Ohio Steel

Does anyone know where John Rebhan's 45 fountain Ohio Steel went?

I think there was a feature in a Hot Boat magazine a while ago but i cant remember which one. It was for sale for a while though Dick Simon Yacht Brokers but thats all I can remember. The reason the boat was name "NADA Chance" was becasue the new owner was the owner or worked for the NADA Guide. Its a nice looking boat now.

The canopied Ohio Steel boat and the boat pictured above is the same boat. Don Christie (NADA Guide) purchased the race boat and spent a ton of money and time doing the full re-rig on the boat. Yes, Stinson would have a lot of info on this boat as the work was done at Dick Simon Marine where he used to work. Mr. Christie intended it for use a a poker run/pleasure boat and had a stand up bolster set up installed. He named the boat Nada Chance and changed the blanck/yellow paint scheme. He later "donated" the boat and Dick Simon Marine again had the boat for sale on their lot. I'm not sure who is the owner now.

I was of the impression that the nada chance boat was the original Ohio Steel boat that was based on the 42 fountain and was always a open cockpit boat, and the boat cowisl was refering to was the 2nd Ohio steel boat which was a closed cockpit canopied 45 and they both were yellow and black with the name Ohio Steel down the side.

If you are talking about the original black & yellow Fountain that Patrick Patel bought from John Reban, it was painted purple, yellow and green and called "Barney". It was raced for 2 seasons by Patrick, Doug Lewis and Kristen Scibetta. We sold to someone in California several years ago. I believe it has since been repainted, thanks goodness!
