With his hopped-up 427-cubic-inch naturally aspirated engine ready to install and hull and deck reassembly for his 1986 Chaparral Villain sportboat well underway, owner Chris Uzzolina (Read the first story) of Charlotte, N.C., has purchased a new trailer for the 23-footer from Loadmaster Trailer Company of Port Huron, Ohio. The trailer will be painted tomorrow.
“We’re having it painted blue to match the boat and it should be ready on Friday,” said Uzzolina. “I will be making the trip out there to next weekend to pick up the trailer and get a tour of the factory.”
Uzzolina said he estimates that Lake Effects Marine in Mooresville, N.C., which is handling the hull and deck restoration, will begin engine installation and rigging in the next two weeks.
