MFG Copperhead

At 19 I got engaged and bought a 14' MFG Copperhead, cat rigged, very fast, and orange, also my first bank loan to pay for it $17 a month and no cosigner (maybe, I think the boat dealer may have cosigned without my knowledge). I sold the boat after I was married to build a deck on my new mobile home, boat, deck and mobile home are all history but the marriage is still intact after 34 years and my wife and I are restoring a 1961 New Horizons. I also own a 1969 Newport Holiday and a 1973 Sears Jetwind that I am restoring for my grandson
