They put in a new plywood bottom, new mahogany decks and transom, beefed up the superstructure of the boat, and mahogany flooring. It has second-generation upholstery and the original motor. The top shown is new, but listed as an option in the 1961 brochure. The boat was purchased in 2018 by Michael and Tracey Karst.
