Monte Carlo by Dale Brevik, Polson, Montana

August 6, 2009

I purchased the plans 6 years ago and have been collecting hardware and parts while waiting for retirement to bring me to the point of starting the build.

White Oak for the frames was purchased and sawdust started hitting the floor on 07/08/09.

We live on the shores of Flathead Lake, largest natural body of fresh water west of the Mississippi river. This will be a dream boat for summer cruising.

I built the model about 8 years ago and it inspired me to start collecting parts for the real thing. I have everything from a new Chevy 350 marine crate engine to the banjo steering wheel and bear claw engine vents. Amazing what you can find on Ebay!
