Hope the new owner fesses up and posts some rehab pix
Not a very active member, and I prefer to leave it up to him to make it public or not, but I too would like to see the progress of the boat. The more I had it, the more I really liked it. When I first discovered these FC's, I couldn't imagine anything but the barrelback tumblehome, would not even consider one of the finned boats. I have come to really like the fins as much as the barrelbacks!
I guess it has come down to one simple thing, if you say "Got Rivets!"
Made a deal today (with a fellow member here) for the '59 Lone Star Malibu. May not have wanted to see it go, but the wife did, and, well.... it is going to a good home. Main reason for getting it was to make sure it didn't get scrapped, and now I am certain that won't happen.
Guess I can't keep them all
I do have her thinking about a CruiseMaster, the Malibu was too similar to the Vagabond, as for purpose, in her mind and the CruiseMaster intrigues her. Wahoo!
