That is a gorgeous little boat. I have a ‘54 Vag and a husband of the same vintage, and I am quite envious of your score. Enjoy it!
For whatever we lose(like a you or a me) it's always ourselves we find in the sea.

Yeah that's were I was . He had it best offer on market place but I guess that didn't apply when I tried to get it for less then 1700 . But It looks cool and he did a lot of work on it. It probably was a hassle bringing it to Florida from Massachusetts.

that is a beautiful boat.

I'm pretty sure they didn't have anodizing in 1954. I could be mistaken though.
