Listen here ! That is one darned fine example of the real thing .Question ? Do you know how hard it is to launch them with slings ? It ain't easy! But I was the only Marina in the area that would .I finally got the owners to make suggested mods to their trailers and it then made it easy as heck .
Special boathook for retreival because of the screw and shaft .Some can have the sling strap at the transom.Others can't .The rudder is there .Sooo,you have to strap it between that rudder and the very expensive screw/shaft assembly . Now it twern't easy but " Carol's Harbor and Marina " did it gladly.
We were in the delta area of northern Cal. By the SanJoaquin/Sacramento rivers . A place called Bethel Island .Right up where "the Duke " ( John Wayne ) filmed "Blood Alley ". Lotsa pretty boats like that .I liked the Jet version best though .Myself , I had a restored MasterCraft Ski Boat from Cypress Gardens in Florida .
Even in miniature it's fun to mess around with and in boats . I do it mostly in model form now, and build the cars for relaxation . OldCarGuy P.S. My Employer's son used to peeve his parents .He'd lift his boat ( a Blue one like yours) ,perfectly balanced on one strap .That boat sometimes would hang like that for half a day on our closed days .
