I am selling Brad Nelsen's Howard. Brad was an active member of RDP for years. Brad passed away a couple years ago and his wife has decided to sell their boat. Myself or Swasey another RDP member will handle all communications, test drives if necessary and delivery.

Brad was meticulous with his boats. This Howard was always garaged and well maintained. Swasey has maintained it the last couple years. The boat does need a little gel work see pics below...

Call JD @ 801-641-6715 with any questions.

Just found this thread. Howard also has some videos on their website of the 28. The Howard 28 open bow is probably my favorite all around boat.

Great looking boat and I remember when he built it. He used to post pictures of their camping/boating trips to Powell. When did Brad pass away?

RIP @B-RAD77

Almost two years ago. I mentioned that part because it is known on RDP for some. I figured it would come up etc.

I remember when this boat was being built. I had some Conversations with Brad. he had some truck issues when he was on his way home and the boat got a little dirty. It cleaned up great and he and his family enjoyed it in Powell if I'm not mistaken. I am so shocked to hear he has passed. I am so very sorry. This boat was fun to watch while being built. If my memory serves right it was one of the first 565s in a Bullet. GLWS! I know its been a couple years but Ill be praying for the family as well.

Beautiful boat, I’d imagine one call to Gene would have it sold in a few days tops. Sorry about your buddy.

@JD D05 I would definitely call Gene. I spoke to him about a 28 open bow and he already has 21 deposits for one. I bet he could sell it super quick... Just a thought.

Already have. And I believe he referred a person over to Swasey
