Project Challenger made it to the show.  Hope to see some members there.  By the way, the lime squeezer green CV looks really COOL!

Nice! I'll have to check it out when I'm down there tonight. I want to know what it costs to have something like that done, or maybe I don't! ;)

Wow! Amazing restoration on that boat. Incredible attention to detail. It was blue when they started with it. The pictures don't do it justice.

here are a few more pictures. The CV16SS looks great! Nice job!

The orange on the Contender is nice too. I nice calm metal flake.

Got to see the new Glastron's. I liked this one. More of a Lincoln then a Glastron though!

The trailer on this old wood ski boat is crazy! It's got to weigh more than the boat.

The huge wood Tempo is just amazing!

Overall, pretty good show. Hopefully they decide to feature us next year.

Pictures from the boat show. My main interests were restored boats, props, and racing boats. Got some ideas for my project and made some connections.

Some more pictures from the boat show.  

The restored 16 CVSS looked gorgeous. The owner saw it for the first time at the boat show, taking the cover off it. Until then, Shipwreck would sent him samples of carpet, vinyl, and other items to choose from since he is from the Dakota's. The dash gauges are fantastic - make by Livorsi, including a GPS speedometer.  Shipwreck told me the price range of the restoration project - still reasonable considering what a new purchase would be. The seat bases are compost so no rotting. Only wood left is in the deck. The owner is now thinking of repowering it. Shipwreck seems open to share the source of their many vendors. The rubrails used were purchased in 12' and 16' sections not from Taco. Scott said they have resin that is better than most stuff available (less fillers) and would sell in smaller quantities.  

Don, from Retro Performance Marine, lives in the Twin Cities, and boats at Lake Owasso near me.

Thought Jerry Sellner was ignoring me until I found out it was Jim Sellner instead, his identical twin brother. Both great guys that loving boating to the core.

Yes that green really pops in person.  I spoke with the Shipwreck guys about my CVX and I got some ideas for down the road. 

Even with all the new boats they had there at the show nothing really got my interest like what Shipwreck and Retro had on display.  Those old woodies were very neat also.

I also noticed that the insert was not a Taco marine part either. Didn't ask where they got though.

Thanks for posting the pics of the 'Lime Squeezer Green" CVSS.  It was good to talk with many members at the show and share the process.  We enjoy talking with those who know their boats and appreciate the effort.  Invite all to stop by the shop any time you're in the neighborhood an see what we're working on........

Will try to find the time to finish one of our '64 Jetflite's in time for summer fun!  Looking forward to open water & summer fun!

Here are a few more pictures of the transom and floor restoration as well as the gelcoat application.    

I am very pleased with the Shipwreck's great work.
