Further Comments

Recapture the glory of a bygone era, this boat shines with luxury and style. Splinter has just completed a ground up restoration, every piece has been meticulously detailed and polished to perfection. The original 131HP KFL Hercules engine has been cleaned, restored and painted. All gaskets and seals have been replaced, the dual updraft carbs have been rebuilt. The drive train has been replaced with a stainless steel drive shaft, a new cutlass bearing and stuffing box. The original brass propellor has been reconditioned and shines brilliantly alongside the remaining brightwork. The gas tank has been cleaned, pressure tested and painted, all lines have been polished to perfection. The original bottom was removed, scraped and replaced with 3M 5200, primed with Interlux Interprotect, then painted with premium Interlux racing bronze anti-foul bottom paint. All sidewalls were stripped and sanded, while the topside was completely replaced with African mahogany. All woodwork received 14 coats of varnish which enhances the warm golden tones of the natural wood, this finish is like glass. The upholstery is new and matches the original color, all flooring has been replaced and covered with new carpet. The trailer was rebuilt from the ground up as well. It has new tires, bearings, lights, brake lines, winch and renovated bunks and carpet. It has been modified to fit the boat like a glove. The trailer is included in the price, we can discuss delivery arrangements. This boat is at the top of her class, and will move fast. GUARANTEED TO DRAW CROWDS WHEREVER SHE GOES.
