Hey Jeb, how is the restoration coming? Haven't seen anything lately...

Steve
Thanks for asking Steve. It's moving along slowly but getting ready to take off here soon I hope. These things never move as fast as you think/want. Cutting the pillow blocks and getting ready to install a little bit of stringer hardware before we glass in the tanks.When I get some good pics I'll post em.
You get the motor back in your boat yet?

And the search continues :))THumbsUp
It sure does Mike.:bangmyhead: Even though your leed was a dead end I sure appreciate you taking the time to PM me, thank you sir. I had a chance to chat with Earl....was a nice guy and said he'd keep an eye out for Trick.

Just got the transmission mounted yesterday and re washed the interior today. Hope to drop the engine back in Friday or Saturday depending on if I need help or not :duh::hmmm:

Another pic. This boat has disappeared...last seen around 1976. Pictured, a very good family friend Mike Michaelson(RIP) in front of Trick. He was one of the co-drivers....

Update

We found this pic in HotBoat magazine from Parker Sept/Oct 1999 from a Hot Boat show. The boat is re-painted and some things have been changed. Anybody at that show remember a Mandella?

No, a completely separate brand new boat, just recently rigged from a "brand new" bare hull that Steve had stored for about 40 years.
Thanks for clarifying that Barry. Yes completely different boats.
I find it interesting that my dads boat was seen at a hot boat event in Parker in 99' as I stated above, but yet nobody on here has seen it or remembers it. Oh well the search goes on..

My brother owns this boat. We were at the Blue Water Casino for this show. Could this be the boat formerly known as "TRICK?"
