Peter & Chris’s Yellow Jacket

 

We found her on the ground along side the road in a trailer park in April of 2010. The original owner had passed it down to his grandson. His intent was to restore her, but didn’t know how. He believes she is a 1955. No motor was found. A deal was struck for $60, with the condition she could fit in the van for the trip to her new home. Luckily she fit. Enjoy the pictorial journey of her revival. She was relaunched in June 2010. Her name is “Juliet”. We added the bimini and a modern 30hp four stroke motor for our comfort. It’s powerful enough to slalom ski. She’s on the water as often as our northern Michigan weather allows and has just been invited to participate in the outboard motor class of the 2011 Torch Lake Antique & Classic Wooden Boat Rendezvous; Cruising for a Cure. We hope you enjoy the pictures.
