Hello Notorious, Sorry I haven't replied earlier, I didn't realize we had gone on to page 2. While we were in the yard we did not have to repair any of the steel structure, we did replace a lot of the oak hull frames, I was disapointed that Bradford did not have the capability to steam bend the frames. We have put the boat up for sale and are still in Ft Lauderdale. Have you found a boat yet I remember you were ready to dig in and get dirty!!!!!
I have attached a photo of a real piece of history that is here with us, the presidental yacht "HONEY FITZ" made famous as John Kennedy's yacht when he renamed her for his Grandfather. Once she is off the rails I will get a better photo. You can reach me directly at email@example.com
