Woodie Fireball Lives On!




 Here's a woodie for the local Fireball crowd, the DIYers and traditionalists everywhere. This beautiful restoration is the family Fireball project, US 7634, of John Ibele. He hails from Minneapolis. The boat was originally built by his family in the seventies. It makes me wince at my all-too-brief Fireball ownership, and want to get cracking on the plywood Y-Flyer I have had garaged for years.

You can read up on, and see more pics of this beau-craft on his blog Family Fireball
