Catalina 22 #13632
I completely rebuilt an early '70's fiberglass bass boat and 50hp motor after it was given to me in lieu of payment for some work. It was a fun learning experience which led me to my current fishing boat, a '92 Alumacraft with a 50 hp Merc.
I grew up on the west coast of Florida sailing Super Snark and Sunflower "Beer Cooler" boats as a kid, but always dreamed of "bigger and better." I helped crew a NonSuch 30 on a trip to the Dry Tortugas the summer out of high school, before moving away from the water. I'm about to get back into sailing again, bigger and better than ever. I have thoroughly enjoyed restoring and working on her the last couple of years.
