Turning Point is a 24 ft launch with a Palmer ZR 1
Some of you may remember her from Mystic a few years back. She has been out of the water for several years. With only normal inspection after being in storage the engine started with only 2 turns of the flywheel. Not that any of us that know these engines would be surprised about that.

Do you have contact info for her owner? I would like to find out some information on the boat.
