Well it has not really rained here in TX for a while, however I picked up 2 more projects over the holidays (a Javelin and a 57 Fleetwin ..as to be used as a kicker on the 57 Yellow Jacket) one would think that would be enough

Well to day I picked up another project

A 1955 Helton with a 22 hp Sea King...What is so great about this boat (beside being made in Houston TX...and the Co is still around) is it was stripped. sanded and near ready for varnishing. $350 and some trade work this spring on their the AC as to get it working right (off and on using the breaker)
