FIASCO

Built in 1973 new for my Grandmother. In 1973, Concordia Co. put together 3 “test” Beetle cats with bronze fasteners before switching over entirely from iron in 1974. This is one of those “test” bronze fastened Beetle Cats.

The name is spelled upside down because once, when the boat was upside-down for bottom work, the name was re-installed right side up, and nobody noticed it, when the boat was righted, the name was upside-down. It pretty much stuck.
