Aero,

Between work and getting my C-J prepped to race next weekend in Sacto, my Gort Maru project has been on the back burner. It's sitting in my living room where I can't ignore it, so hope to get back into it in a few weeks.

Kevin

Interesting project. What became of the boat your grandfather built?

Cartix,

He sold the boat in the mid-1980's (actually traded it for a piece of land). Various family members saw the boat at Catalina Island for a few years after. Then no sign of her. She was always quite a maintenance chore, so I'd imagine by now she's been scrapped. I still keep my eyes peeled for her whenever I'm near a marina around here!!!

You never know! There are a lot of big marinas it could be hiding in in So-Cal!
