Old Boat Rebuilder

Hi,

I'm Paul and I rebuild older boats mostly for myself, but have done a few for friends over the years. I particularly like to work with some of the older aluminum boats that seem to last forever, but often need care and restoration such as the larger 18' runabouts and larger Starcraft cruisers and a few others that have good lines and some character such as the Marinette cruisers. I might be interested in purchasing or assisting you in restoring your older aluminum cruiser or larger runabout if you have one you'd like to part with or refurbish and it has potential for restoration. I'm located near the Mississippi in eastern Iowa if anyone near (or far) cares to get acquainted. Drop a note and let's chat. I'm an older guy with lots of interests and have a large shop to work in. I'm somewhat retired, but far from being tired. Also own and fly my own airplane if any of you happen to be into the "friendly skies".
