Ran 86 Barth to the Keewenau peninsula for a few days. Worked on Dad's 1927 wooden 38 ft boat. Sanded and painted the bottom and launched it for the 51st time since we've owned it! confusion

Just run this thread backwards from the haul in 2013 and you'll have the details. ROTFLMAO

750 miles round trip, 7.6 mpg and didn't touch a thing on the coach. Planning to swap new transmission in time for Allegan, thread to follow! mechanic

Thanks, Sheila. I will pass the compliment on to Dad. Thumbs Up

Now you can see where I get my desire to own and preserve old stuff. Let's see…

1986 19 ft I/O aluminum Bluefin boat
1982 Honda Silverwing 500cc road bike
1968 Cessna 172 Skyhawk
1971 VW bus

and of course, 86 Barth!
