Basic Decription: This is a restored classic mahogany 1957 Shepherd 16 foot Ski Bee model manufactured at Niagara on the Lake in Ontario Canada.

I was told by an appraisal company, who was soliciting their services, that they would consider her a "mint" condition vessel.

This is an inboard runabout model which means the engine is tucked neatly under a hatch and not under a "dog house" looking box in the middle of the boat.

Her restoration has been recently completed which included but not limited to replanking of both innner and outter planks below the water line.

Thats means the new marine plywood interior planks were coated in Smith's CPES then covered with new outter Philipean mahogany planks, all embedded in 3M5200 for a desireable "no soak" bottom.

Secured with silicon bronze fasteners and painted with Petit Hard Racing Bronze bottom paint outside and new gray bilge paint inside.

Epifanes varnish covers everything including the new dash board, deck boards, spray rails and mahogany plywood transom.

The interior was treated to a new white Bimini top, windshield, dash board, tach cable, carpeting and completely new seat frames and upholstery.

Before I forget to mention I have to say that she is being sold with the trailer that has a new 2" ball hitch, plastic fenders, wireslights, winch, bearing buddies, wheels and tires.

Both the boat and trailer have been stored indoors since I have owned them.

The inboard 65 HP Universal Unimite Four- 4 cylinder engine has recently been tuned by a local mechanic.

Since the engine is the same as a Chris Craft model B it currently sports that models exhaust manifold, a machined head, valve wadjustments and new head gasket.

A rebuilt Zenith updraft carb is fed by an electric fuel pump for reliability.

To add to its reliability, and speed the engines starting, an electronic ignition with matching coil and wires were installed.

The fuel tank was cleaned, sealed and tested with new fuel lines.

A list of new parts installed during its restoration also includes blower, bilge pump, 12 volt alternator, stainless choke cable, oil pressure gauge tubing, vintage alternator gauge, throttle cable, water cooled stuffing box, dash switches, rebuilt V drive, rebuilt water pumpimpellor, stainless prop shaft, greaseable drag link steering components, deck horns, custom Shepherd pennant, and new vintage ensign Call Mike 704-966-0838
