I got the Tique in the fall of 2006. It replaced the other fiberglass boat we have for day to day skiing as the kids have outgrown the old 140HP I/O. Although we do use my other wood boats for skiing, my wife doesn’t drive them as she feels that if she nicked or scratched ether one of them it would be grounds for divorce. (she may be correct!)

The Tique was in very nice shape when purchased but did need some work. After removing the boat name on the transom from the previous owner I found the original virgin color of the gel coat. No amount of wet sanding or stain removers helped so I had to re-gel the entire transom. When the previous owner did the stringers, he replaced the floor with a removable section to the aft of the engine. I glassed it back in solid and added the access hole in the floor like original. The carpet was changed out and a seat pad for the flat top fiberglass engine hatch was made to match the factory made optional pad. A couple of the gauges were bad so I ended up replacing the whole set.

We are looking forward to many years of enjoying this classic Correct Craft, Pete
