Anyone familiar with the boat "Precious Metal"? Catawba Island, Ohio

Postby Rlfa83 » Tue Jan 09, 2018 8:40 pm

Curious if anyone on here is familiar with her?
My wife, daughter and I are now the proud owners! :D
Just looking for any background info on her, if anyone is familiar with the boat.
Thanks
Rob

Congrats! Maybe a description of the boat would help if someone might have seen it.

You might ask around at the local repair shops and marinas. Look up the boat registration number with the state and if you have a property tax there, check their records. Any receipts for parts or work in the boat? Do you have a trailer? Research the plate number and serial numbers.

She's a 32' Sedan FB.
I haven't seen any others in her color. It's a tan/cream with brown/maroon trim...

Post some pictures, I may have seen it over the years. Check out the Great Lakes Marinette Club too. Our annual get together will be at the Sandusky YC this year. Love to see you there.

I knew I've seen her before, she was dry docked out in front of my friend Rich's marina. He has a 32' Express. Stopped & looked at her last time I visited him. Looked beautiful. Don't know the owner or history though, unfortunately.

Is that the one at Mid-Way Marina.? I looked it over before I bought "Hei-Jo", Now named "C-WAVES" and soon to be renamed this spring (2018)..
That is a very good looking boat, but way more than I needed, or wanted.. Are you going to launch at Mid-Way.? I was there last year with our 32 Express, they were very good to us, as a marina goes, did good repair work by Dave, when I needed a little help.. Over all, we were very happy with the marina management, except that the dog owners DO NOT clean up after their dogs..! I did, and having two Big Labs had a good mess to clean up, and used three or more "extra" bags, every time we went for a walk, cleaning up someone elses dogs droppings.. But I guess you get that any place.. We are a spoiled society and expect someone else to clean up after us... Well some of us, anyway... But some of us.. still take responsibility for our pets and children.. Over all, it's a good marina, but we are not going back this year..
