PENATES, a 43-foot, commuter-style power boat, was completely restored by Rockport Marine in 2003. The restoration included lengthening the boat by three feet, installing a new bottom, putting in a new cockpit, completely refinishing the bright mahogany hull and overhauling her two 425 horsepower Crusader engines. PENATES is cold-molded with batten seam construction. She was conceived by Michael Turner as an adaptation of a Hacker Craft design and built in 1991.
