 The Back Story: This classic wooden boat went by a different name (Halaski) at one time. The previous owner was unable to care for her, and his sons were not interested in the 1960 Matthews boat. Due to neglect, she became a derelict boat and the marina ended up with her. Carl Earhart and Martha Forero were looking for a project when they came across an ad on They went to the marina in Wilmington. When they saw the boat, they noticed she was in bad shape. The engines didn’t run, and she was falling apart. Forero made an offer below asking. Based on the poor condition of the boat, Earhart made an even lower offer which was accepted. Had they not purchased the boat, Earhart and Forero learned later, she would have been scrapped. The purchase was made three years ago.
