    I have been slowly getting an El Dorado Custom ready for restoration. I have it at my in-laws so I have only been able to work on it when I get up there. This boat is such a beauty!

    ​​​​​​Unfortunately, the restoration may not happen it.... It is sitting right on the edge of the fire that is sweeping across Northern California. The good news is that the family got out safe. Hoping the project will continue.....

      Thanks. Of course we all know in the big picture boats don't matter. And there is so much loss others are experiencing. I guess I hope the boat is there so their house is there so the neighbor's house is there...

          Fires suck. When I lived in ca I as a youngster I did assist as a "fsa" fire suppression aide - those guys that cut fire breaks- and also did livestock rescue, mostly horses (our family had a horse trailer and rig) even the heat from a distance is intense.

                    I'm 30 miles from Chico we seem to be caught in the middle of these suspicious fires . Hope your boat makes it . Paradise is completely gone and Magaila is not doing to well either . With 42 dead so far I'm glad to hear that your family made it out. We have a few shirttail relations up there as well . Three family members lost houses but at least everyone is alright . Still raging.

                      Thanks everyone. AB, glad your relatives are okay. The pictures of the damage have been horrific. It looks we may get news today. We know most of the homes just south of them are gone... Approximately 60 homes. But two of three right behind them are still there. So there's a little hope....
