    Very cool! Thanks for sharing.

    I wonder what ever happened to that Barefoot with an outboard.

    I know this post is now 3-4 years old but I happened to stumble upon it today and thought you might like a little history of these twin-engine Fish Nautiques. They were built for a camp in the Adirondack Mountains of New York and were used to transport campers to an island that was located in the middle of the lake. I was fortunate to be a part of the "Boat Crew" that got to drive these boats back and forth to the island all summer long. If my memory serves me correctly we got a new Ski Nautique and Ski Tique every year but kept the Fish Nautique for 3 years before getting a new one. Attached are 2 pictures that I have from the Summer of 1981. They are not great but they are all I have and I thought you might be interested in seeing them, especially the Fish. The Fish that is pictured was not new in 1981 so it must be a 1980. You'll notice in the foreground of the one picture is another Correct Craft. This is the only Barefoot Nautique ever manufactured for use with an outboard engine. We used it to haul the campers gear to and from the island.

    Did you finally get the fiberglass shop to finish?? I don't know how these kinds of places stay in biz...It's the same for really good paint/body guys on the auto side, must be the solvents!
    Looking forward to seeing the progress of this thing! Some of the fishing guys have done some awesome "restomods" on the Fish Nautiques, check em out.

    That's very true! That's one positive point to the delay I guess!

    Guess what's finally back in the shop! Back to work on it starting next week!

    I am setting a goal of having it ready for the 2020 Southeast Nautique Regatta.

    Yeah, I might just reconfigure the entire dash to incorporate screens in place of gauges. We'll see.

    It would be nice to add an angled display box on top of the console for a built-in chart plotter and depth finder display versus mounting it on brackets.

    I am beyond frustrated with the delay on getting this boat wrapped up.

    It has been sitting at the fiberglass shop for the last NINETEEN months!

    I made two mistakes when I took it there. First, I told them that I wasn't in a rush, and second, I pre-paid for the work!

    Here's the current state of the boat. The new floor is in (kind of), and the new interior deck is in place, including the front seats. That's about it though.

    I will be going back out there this week to have a discussion with them about getting their part wrapped up so that I can start my part.
