Hi again Tim,
A little history on the Sterling Monterey. I built it in 1954 or 1955. I was 12 or 13 and living in Detroit. I changed the outboard to inboard and filled in the cutout in the transom and redid some of the paint { the hull white and copper} in I think the mid 70's. Before I painted the hull originally, I covered it with model airplane tissue to help fill the grain and strengthen it. I sold the two outboards I had. An Evinrude that was red and white and a green Mercury with the fluted stainless cover. I wish I had kept them.
Are you starting a Sterling Museum?? I think it's great. Keep posting pictures
Dick
