I purchased my 1973 Ski Nautique from a coworker who had it sitting in his grandmothers barn with a leaky roof for over 5 years without being covered or used. I replaced the rotted stringers, reattached the pylon mount, made a new floor, new rub rail, refurbished the gauges and painted the boat. The Ski Nautique on the sides when I bought the boat where red. However when we started sending the boat we found the lettering to be originally blue, therefore restoring it to its original glory. At this point I havenít even put the boat in the water yet. You can imagine my excitement building. I had a lot of help from many good friends helping with fiberglass repair, paintwork, fabrication, woodworking and advice. I am forever in their debt.

After putting the boat in the water for the first time I realized all the hard work was very worth it. The boat runs and sounds great. All the thumbs up from other boaters made me as proud as I was when I became a father, what a great feeling.

Lastly there is no way I could have done this project without the help from the entire Correct Craft Fan website. What a great site dedicated to the best boats in the world Correct Crafts.

Thank you,
