a note from Edwin

  • A few years ago I found a 1986 Chris Craft Scorpion left abandoned in the back of a Warehouse. I thought that it was a shame that a perfectly good boat was languishing and decided to save her soul. After a couple of months of elbow grease and some trial and error, I had a great boat that my family could enjoy for years to come.

    I accomplished all of this for a fraction of what a new boat costs. I was able to customize the boat exactly the way I wanted it so it was perfect for my growing family. It occurred to me that there must be other families who would love to be on the water but the costs associated have kept them away. I also thought of all the families who have a boat they love that has fallen into disrepair.
