The good news is that she did not sink… 3 bilge pumps and she survived the night…

After about three hours of continuous pumping we are now a
squirt every 15 minutes. Both engines started and she is looking

good… Funny thing.. Now that he bottom is finished all I notice is the bright work… I suppose that’s a metaphor for

how I live my life. I am always focused on fixing something … I wonder why I love these boats???

    Betsy looks great. You will enjoy your cruiser, I miss mine. Is that a Matthews I see in the background? What length? Can it be purchased? Would be neat for me, I'm from the town where they were built.

    Yes that's a Matthews. It needs restoration.. 2500 is the asking price. You can contact captain crunch at wino signs. It's a banner on the right Dodd of the page
