We purchased this boat from a dealership in Colorado in the year 2000. The dealership reupholstered the boat after it sat on the lot for a year. When we bought it we had to fix it every weekend. After working out all of the bugs we were able to really enjoy our boat. In the winter of 2006-2007 I started an enormous rebuild project. I cut out the old floor and removed several hundred pounds of wet foam. Then replaced each stringer. Everything was carefully sealed with epoxy resin and glass. Grinded off all of the old gelcote. Then faired and sanded the boat. Next I applied new gelcote, wet sanded, and added new graphics. When I put it all back together I installed a 1993 dash pod, Faria guages, depth finder, and Perfect Pass Digital Pro 6.5. Installed an XPC shaft seal, new shaft, and an ACME 540 prop. I converted the motor box to a clamshell and made a contoured observer bench.
The boat looks and runs great.

Now it belongs to another CCFan. I hope it serves him and his family well for many years to come.
