This is simply amazing. The Batboat (black redfish) was on display at EAA Airventure. Person left note about selling a similar boat. Turns out, it was in storage at a former redfish dealership, having NEVER BEEN SOLD. No kidding, I bought a brand-new 1958 beluga hardtop in 2014. Gifted it to an officianato who never touched or registered it. He got dementia, so I recorded the lease and just gifted it to another friend in WI. Imagine a brand-new boat fromm1958 getting registered for the first time 63 YEARS AFTER MFG. All true. The back story is even weirder- The former dealers got kicked off my display dock . I wasn't present.. Later that week, I received a post-it with "earle- ###-###-####" . Placed in wallet. 2 yrs later, got new wallet, tossed postit. Saw in trash later, called #. 21 questions and voila. A brand new stored boat, sight unseen in N VT. Drove 100 miles to see it, brought to lucky recipient unbenounced. Never touched, released it to another buddy. All true, amazing.
