1960 Glasspar 17’ Seafair Powered by Mercury Outboard 115 hp
Owned by Greg and Diann Kuhl of St. Peters, MO
Ridiculous was purchased about 6 years ago. He bought the Glasspar with the intention of selling the parts, as the boat was in terrible condition. But once the boat was in the garage, Diann, his wife, thought the boat was cute, so Greg decided to restore the boat for her.
The restoration of the boat took two years. Greg did all the restoration work himself except for the upholstery. Greg replaced the transom, the stringers, the floor, and a lot of fiberglass repair prior to painting the entire boat. He added custom accessories, such as gunnel storage and a rear seat. The original color was drab green and white but we wanted something fun and bright, hence the colors blue and yellow.
We named the boat “Ridiculous” because of the amount of time and money it took to restore the boat.
Unfortunately we do not know the history of the boat.
