Quite a long history, now Im bringing it home. This boat was left for dead, then partially resurrected. "Number Nine" is the ninth of 18 boats built in San Pedro called "John Woody's". As the previous owner Mike described it, its more of a classic '69 VW than modern day off the shelf piece of plastic. I'm attracted to things of yesteryear...nostalgia. I dont know why, maybe its the quality in craftsmanship or the idea that things were once built to last, or just the simple fact that its different. As a kid growing up in Newport Beach I used to watch the old dory boats returning from sea with their daily catch. Theyd charge in througj the surf and slide up right into the sand. I thiught it was bitchen!! When I saw the boat two things immediately caught my attention...the lines and the full transom! Mike had picked it up on the cheap and buried himself in the project, immersing his soul into the build. Months of grinding and serious fiberglass work got it to its present state. It was to one day be his baja sled. Heavy lifting complete, a new baby changed his daily responsibilities and so it made its way through another party for a brief stay before I finally got my chance to tow it home and get to work. Currently I am fairing and sanding all the glass work. All ideas, criticism, and suggestions are welcome, but just remember, The owner reserves the right to refuse service to anyone!! I'll shut up for now and post some pics and ill try to continue updating with pics and progress reports. Enjoy!!
