Rebuild History

Rebuilding: In 1973, Huckins rebuilt DOLPHIN including new bottom planking, new frames and keel. Hull sides were replaced approximately up to 16" above the chine. New exterior of bottom and hull sides were then fiberglassed. Interior of planking was epoxy coated. The superstructure was rebuilt in the 1980 by Mayea Boat Works, one of the finest yacht yards specializing in yacht restoration on the Great Lakes, and they also redesigned and replaced the windows. The extensive new planking and new diesel engines would, in the opinion of Huckins Yacht Corp., make DOLPHIN comparable in quality to other Huckins built in the 1970's.
