Tuffy built by Gary Solmi

Just thought you might like another picture of one of your best and easiest kits to build.

I finished this one at the age of 21 in just 3 months. I did everything except the paint and upholstery. I built this boat after I got out of the military in 1958 and sold it at a profit. It had a 45hp Merc and pulled skiers on one ski with ease.

I haven't forgotten how nice everyone treated me back then. I will probably be building another boat in the near future and guess who will be my supplier?

Attached is a photo that may be posted on your site if it is acceptable. The lake is Berryessa Calif.

Thanks, Gary Solmi
