We’re always excited to get another Coronado into the shop. As most of you know, it’s one of my all time favorite woodies. Good looking, powerful, and one with a lot of usability with it’s open design and capacity for up to eight passengers. We’ve done many Coronados and this particular boat is just like the one we use at our lake. And we love it.
The owner purchased this boat from a bank up north that had repossessed it along with other items from some unfortunate soul. The boat had received some attention along the way, and most of it done incorrectly… as you can see. She also came with an underpowered Ford V8. We located a period-correct 331 Hemi which will go in and be a better match for the boat’s performance capabilities.
As always, after documenting every aspect of the boat we roll her over and begin on the bottom.
