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.
