This is a story of a Restoration

I restored this boat from April 2006 to October 2008. You will need to go to the very bottom, October 2008, to find the biginning. See blog archive on the right side.

More boats.

This boat is the Sunken Treasure. It was sunk for 40 years on the bottom of Lake Tahoe. He brought it up, and restored it, even the engine, It is a small boat, 14 feet, and was swamped by a large wave.

Th boat is owned by the same man, and the engine is a Jaguar V12.

This is a 33' , 1936 Gar Wood, worth about $250,000. The dash picture, shows an instrument cluster that would cost $10,000 alone.

This is the engine in that WW ONE baot, a Liberty out of an air plane. Garfield Wood bought a thousand of them and made them into marine engines for racing and for sale.

This is the youth project. This 9 year old boy, with the help of his father, built this boat.
