Kenny finally got the Reel McCoy finished and in the water today after a little over a year. It turned out great. Anyone that knows Kenny knows he does things right even if takes a little time.

I see he painted topside and bottom, and from the pictures it looks like he cleaned her up good. Like Jake said looks new. What all did he have done?

its good to see her coming along...I caught my first billfish on this boat over 10 years ago, back then she was an old beater that was lucky to hit 12kts with a tailwind. Kennys put a lot of work into her over the years and she looks great

Yea the old days of catching Tuna and Wahoo on the ride home are long gone when het got rid of the 453s, 140hp each, and installed these a few years back. I believe these are over 435hp each.

The boat is a '62 model and he's had it since the early 90's. He's done more work than I would be able to list over the years: Recently he painted it top to bottom, a few years back the interior, a few years prior to that the engines... It's been a work in progress for many years and with it being 48 years old, just a few months younger than Kenny, I'm sure there will be many more "projects".

I dont know kenny personally but i fish with a guy(Frank) that knows him and he keeps his boat(33 Bertram)a couple slips down form him. That being said,

Kenny isa good guy, A friend of mine Curt knows him and Kenny takes him fishing all the time and it sounds like he has taken some other kids/teens. Good job Kenny if you want to take someone or have an extra spot sometime i would like to go. Joe
