 1956 Century Coronado  

In 1998 I bought this boat during a mid-life crisis and had a wonderful time for several years. It is very fast, easily 50 mph. I even had the engine professionally restored, and all the original hardware re-chromed, but I can’t document that. Then it needed some restoration so I paid to have it stripped down to planks, which is where it is now. I even have the original hard top (Top does not slide, and has canvas bimini portion) and some spare parts.
