    Default Back IN the GAME

    I've been out of the game for a while but finally was fortunate enough to jump back in. Here is the new project. '75 southwind sprint. Sub floor was toast so I decided to try something new. I converted it into a 3/4 stringer boat. I just could not let this old girl die due to her not being molested and all original. The boat had a plaque on the passenger side dash that was engraved OWNER/DRIVER DENNIS WARNER. Any one heard of that name before? Boat was bought out of Sacramento Ca.
