Don't know about the condition of this particular boat but it has a fantastic pedigree. Too bad Mike Thompson's website where he completely restored M/V Full Step is no longer available online. He passed away 3 or 4 years ago and his wife has since sold the boat and deactivated the website. I was looking hard at these boats when I was shopping so I downloaded many, many photos of these boats at various stages of refit. Let me know if you want any of the info. Single engine or twins?

Send me a PM with your email and I'll zip them up and send them. May be 2 or 3 batches, depending on how large the files get.

Harly, you may not remember me. My wife and I passed you and your lady friend(wife) on our way out of the harbor when y'all were getting ready to leave with your new boat. We were in the 41' Litton. Glad to see you are happy with the Defever. It's looking good. Keep me posted. We are looking for a 44 DeFever. If you run across one let me know.

I was just going to ask if that's got DeFever roots since it looks a lot like fellow TFer, remwine's 40. Good, stout boats with great bones.

Congrats!

Maybe it wasn’t you. But it was a gay and gal in maybe their 40s preparing to pull out when we went by. Our slip was just behind where your boat was for years. We always gave it a good look each time we went by. Everyone at the Harbor was wondering how you made out with your one engine crossing the lake.
