    Is that a Koala wrapped around the shaft?

    Hope it's a rope- if not, I don't think I want to know...

    That’s an awesome boat...would love restore that and bring it back home to Wisconsin...
    She’s in pretty rough shape...lots missing parts...$$$$$... there’s a LOT of beautiful wood boats in the Lake Geneva area...

    My casual opinion - don't restore it!

    Fix the mechanicals on the engine and trans, the boat will leak like a sieve but you can set it on a lift and soak it, run a hose into the hull a couple times a day and get the thing to seal up well enough to run it!

    Too bad someone hauled it to Florida this would be a really fun river ski boat.

    @nando If you have enough money you don't need the other two.
