After dropping WECATCHEM off on Monday night, on Tuesday morning the gang of Katz’s started in on stripping her down and exposing her naked mahogany. The good news. She is tight, and in very good shape. The original family took very good care of her as did the many people that worked on her over the years up on Lake Winnipesaukee.
New fuel tank installed in 1992 by Ivan Phelps at The Wooded Boat Shop in Melvin Village NH. Thanks Ivan!
We are for sure going to respect and continue that tradition. We really don’t own these boats anymore, we are caretakers. And the folks at Katz’s Marina do just that!
Jara tracing WECATHEMS original font from the factory. It had been redone of course, but they followed the same font, and we will be taking it back to the original Aluminum leaf .
Henry, without question one of the best finish guys in the world. Sitting and pondering. MICE! MICE! Why do all of Matt’s boats have Mice in them. Shhh dont tell Henry, I melt cheese all over them to winterize them! Really!
Really! REALLY! MICE!
Kapock Mice! So we know they were in there pre 1990’s at least when the interior was redone, Which is now being redone back to her original red. Maybe it runs in the family? Her older sister STINKY as you recall had many fellow Mice in her. OK, that just sounds strange.
In every nook and cranny!
As of yesterday most of her sides are already stripped and looking fantastic!
Stay tuned for more updates and reports from shows happening this weekend!
