Finally re-launched the boat only to find that the fuel pump had quit. My wife snapped this photo as I was leading it back onto the trailer. ...At least it floats well!

I am a long long time fan of Bettie and member of her fan club, Bettie Scouts of America I really like that boat! Great tribute to Bettie!

She's beautiful, Nautilus, another true "work of art" IMHO!

This is the Ski Dart you restored, correct? It sure looks great in the water and I still can't believe the insanely low price you paid for that boat before you restored her. BTW, I was showing your yacht website to my wife's uncle who has been on Keowee for years. Of course he knows you and said he once raced you in your yacht and he lost!

You know...I think I remember that "race." I once dumped the throttles outside the Keowee marina next to a guy with a good-sized cabin cruiser. Matriarch will only do 20 kts wide open but those 903's did sound intimidating, I guess.
