That is sure a nice looking boat, but this comment got my attention:
"This boat was restored to as original factory specifications with the exception of the bottom which for safety and convenience reasons was done in a West Systems style with multiple layers of marine mahogany plywood. The same method was used on the Hullsides and Deck to give a very solid boat yet retaining the exact look of the original."
Isn't that kind of like rebuilding a Power-Wagon and putting a fiberglass body and fenders on it? Nothing wrong with doing either to the boat or a Power-wagon, but how can it now be called a "restoration"? Also, they used vinyl instead of leather for the seats. How much would they want for it if it was restored using original materials?
