Very interesting to find these photos on the internet. This was my boat and my company did the restoration.It was used on Lake Keowee in SC in ourvintage wine and cheese cruise business for seven years. The vessel was sold two years ago and has since disappeared. I believe it was damaged beyond financially responsible repair by the transport company. She was a grand old lady and on of three Elco 57's extant.
