Who want’s a bath?
Yesterday before the rain and misery of back to back calls, I was able to get out and clean Yip Yap off of all the “Journey Home” And as expected, she looks fantastic.
The fact that this is still there is why we got her back! AMAZING!
She for sure was well taken care of by her foster families during her life away from home.Which we will cover tomorrow. Oh it has drama, and she still wears some of the Scars of a well lived life. Hey go look at yourself in the mirror after 62 years. The one you haven’t cracked yet! ANY WHO! Here she is. All sparkly clean..ish
Under it all is her original factory finish. AMAZING
The crappy strange NISSAN throttle is ugly and yet, now part of her whacked history
The numbers will get chucked!
The Sea Foam Green is called Chesapeake Green, and is an old Pettit color. I HAVE THE CAN!
And yes, I AM PAINTING THE BOTTOM BACK TO THE GREEN. I have no idea what this white is, but its a mess. Engine will be pulled and painted Johnson Green, and boat flipped and bottom painted Chesapeake Green
In Da House!
Still has all her details, I have always wondered about this, She is a 1958 yet her engine was a 1956.
The day we found her in Buffalo. I loved the trailer but it just fell apart. I still have both engines and yes the original gas tank. I saved those. I may try and match the original hull numbers? Not sure yet.
