This was William's personal boat for several years and as expected underwent a complete renovation. This boat was a Carl Mosley design, back in the days of racing and rum running from Bimini to Miami. Bertram, Donzi and several others were involved at the time.
Scratch built Simmons with a new 25hp Mercury 4 stroke engine. The boat was later powered with a vintage 50hp Merc. with better performance.
This is William's 'main squeeze', outfitted for South Florida and the Everglades......fishing, diving and exploring.
Victoria meticulously cleaned every part extracted from 4 different engines ranging in years from 1975 to 1985.
William agonized in an effort to get this motor running. "No other mechanics would touch it, so I was on my own". However, today this 2 cycle 50hp motor outperforms a new 25hp 4 stroke, both in power and economy.
