    We have a lot of work to do on the inside, removed everything and nearly start from scratch. As some have written in former posts, it is a low beam boat so a bit tricky to reshape. Considering how boat equipments have progressed, we hope to do something nice. She deserves it.

    I think I remember her being in the Stuart FL area, owned by Bill Watson, then I heard she was in Va or Md at a yard with interior stripped.

    That's might be her, Maldwin. She was stocked for 6 years in a warehouse in PA. We will make back to life. Do you have any contact details on Bill Watson?
    Thanks

    Laurent - Please post some refit pix as you go. It would be interesting to see her transformation.

    The inside has nothing left. Removing all materials, up to the fiberglass, we will also replace the side windows. image.jpeg

    There is a Midnight Lace 44 in Jacksonville FL, called Nighthawk. I am planning to take a look at her and was wondering, given how many of these boats some of the members have looked at, does anyone have information on this one? Thank you in advance.

    I have seen her thru the years under cover at Huckins Yacht center or at Julington Creek marina.
    No details on the boat it self.
    Sara at Huckins may know more.

    some news on the Lace restoration, the windows are installed, the dashbord as well, the transom is in process, all the headliners have been removed, a customized T-Top has been bought but not installed yet. Going to start looking at the electrical wiring tomorrow...

    Anyone would be aware of a software package to draw the electrical wiring? Hope I'm clear...
