Dans Yellow Jacket

Hi, My name is Dan and I live in San Diego, CA. I have been looking for a nice simple boat for some time now. Well I happened to come across a gentleman who was selling a wooden boat. I knew the boat I wanted was a wood one, but living on the west coast it hard to find one. Any ways in talking to this gentlemen he showed me his boat he has had since he was 17. He worked for his father for the summer and in return his father had bought him this boat. The boat was only used for about 10 years and garaged ever since. The last time it was registered was in 1963. I even still have those registration stickers. In 1963 he has taken the boat twice to Catalina Island using two twin Johnson motors. To me that was amazing. The boat came with a 25hp Johnson but I ended up placing another engine I purchased (1959 Evinrude 50 H.P.). I took it out a couple of times with the 25 hp motor and was very impressed. So during the winter I was just doing little touch ups to the boat and motor. All that is left is to finish "Yellow Jacket" decal in the back and finish the rest of the painting. So any ways I just wanted to show off my boat and say it has been fun and exciting having a piece of the boating history. Dan mailto:dhrwilson@cox.net
