Sorry no pic as I was riding my bike, but got to see Merlin on I-80 in Salt Lake City being trucked west. Love or hate the re-build, she looked great.

So who knows what ?

Did it sell ? Who bought it ? Wherezit going?

After that faggy paint job I'm surprised it wasn't re-named the Melvin. :wacko:

Good news. Always hated the way that iconic boat had been fucked with. Presumably a deep bulbed keel will be going on - that should improve her stability and reduce complexity.

Excellent!

With the way the SC Harbor shoals up and the kelp, a deep bulb might not be the best way. She's plenty fast with a fin.

This is great. I'm getting all warm and fuzzy here. . .

Just get her as close to original as possible and let the good times roll.

I was on the frontage road, near the Great Salt Lake Marina. I figured she was headed there. :D

The Wizard reports MERLIN ETA Santa Cruz: Tuesday 10/27, just in time for Halloween. I'm sure there will be a "Welcome Back, MERLIN" happening. It's Santa Cruz, Fast Is Funner

Well, at least they don't have to let the air out of the trailer tires to get under the freeway overpasses .

And why the hell isn't this on the front page ???
