This is the classic Bertram ?Moppie,? (Hull #251). She?s a well-loved and well-kept boat that still turns heads at fuel docks. She?s located in Solomons Island, MD.
Awlgrip hull paint was applied 2001, and she?s been kept under cover and on a lift ever since.
She had a major renovation in 2003, including:
? Repowered with two SeaMaxx 5.7 liter carbureted V8 engines; 310 hp each, 600 hours. Nibral props.
? Completely rewired.
? All new instruments including Flomax fuel meters. (She gets over 2 mpg -- 20 gph -- at 21 knots, or 1.8 mpg at 30 knots.)
? Garmin fishfinder/chartplotter installed w bronze thru-hull transducer
? New gel coat on decks. Hardware re-chromed or replaced.
Her original fiberglass fuel tanks, which were vulnerable to ethanol fuel, were replaced with new aluminum tanks in 2006, before local marinas started selling ethanol fuel.
She got new risers in 2011.
In 2012 her bottom was resurfaced and gel coated.
This boat was running flawlessly and had just been detailed and waxed when put up on land in June 2013 to make room for a new & bigger boat. I will be sad to see her go.
