Mid 1980s in storage. The hardtop and 250hp Cadillac engine were installed in 1970. The boat was used until minor damage loading it on a trailer during a flood in June of 1972. The boat then was set outside for a few years. The boat was reaquired in 1974 and was placed in storage where it remained until the restoration was started.

The restoration actually started in 1985 when the boat was stripped. Then it was moved around a few times for storage reasons.
