That's rad! I remember him mentioning that. Aesthetically did you do anything to it? As far as I can tell this is the way it was painted originally. I figured the name had been on it since the 70's too
I will answer your question since Andrew hasn't. He is my nephew. Yes, he did a complete restoration on the boat including all of the paint work, and color and layout of the design. He also re did the floors and replaced the 427 with a fresh 454. Also painted the trailer, all of that when he was 17 and still in high school. The name was also Andrew's idea. "Ratical"

That's impressive. He did a great job with it. It held up incredibly well. My grandfather thought about removing the name a couple years ago during the recent resto; Glad he didn't.


The scheme is timeless, keeping that was never in question. 👍

Nice shots as usual. Some of those ski shots are frame worthy!

These shots are making me wish I could get on a ski again but unfortunately I'm pretty sure those days are gone.
Get a set of doubles! 👍👍
