Strange setup with the strut. They must have tried to fit a bigger wheel. My Grover, or any others that I've seen, looks nothing like that(except for the express Grover with the 240 yanmar).

The person that boat the boat named her Pheonix. I looked again at the pics and saw the gin pole. I am pretty sure that is Larry's boat.

If it is some great memories fishing with Larry, my dad and Larry's Dad.
I have some pictures of the boat when Larry owned it.

That was my 1st boat a 1978 Grover. I am the original owner. I sold her in 1984 when I bought a 31 JC boat. Original power was a 120 Lehman. I went to the ends of the earth in that boat. when sold we went to Brooklyn NY. This is the first I have seen of her until now.

Captainlarry. Thank you for the all the info. I wonder when she was repowerd with the Volvo. When did you sell. The boat must screw with a 200 hp in it How did the boat handle the water My grandfather had a 26. With a 80 hp leman in it. I was always interested in these boats. Thanks for all the info

Great pics

I remember when you hung that 367 mako. That's me in the picture by the piling. I cut out of school early to come see the weigh in with my dad.

We did cover a lot of ground on that boat.

Most likely with the Volvo 15 knot as apposed to 12 knots with the 120 Lehman. She was wet and windshield wipers were a must, but she always got me home.
