I removed all the side boards, transom and relaid them to the frame-work in 5200 adhesive.  I had Jeff Funk of Antique Boat Shop in Ft. Wayne Indiana install a correct 5200 bottom.  Jeff also did the final hull preparation, staining and varnish.  Jim Wirt, owner of Boat Shop, Inc. installed and aligned the engine.  The engine has been converted to a 12 volt system and re-wired by Jim.The previous owner went to a great deal of work to install Sun Gauges (very popular years ago) that are NOT original to the boat.  Except for the clock, they all work.90% of the chrome was redone to "SHOW QUALITY".  The interior was redone in tufted red leather.  The steering wheel is not original.  I purchased  this Trail Master Trailer new in 2008 which was built specific to this boat.  It has a swing-away tongue.My wife and I have had a great deal of enjoyment traveling the mid west and going to boat shows in the summers.  This boat was awarded 1st Place for it's division in 2010 at the ACBS Black Hawk Chapter at Lake Geneva, Wisconsin.
