Another pal, yacht designer Mike Peters, made the first attempt at her resuscitation. Having worked in the race-boat game for years, Mike knew she was worth saving. She was, in fact, something of a missing link: one of maybe a dozen Bertram race boats built in the 1960s that tied the builder’s first race boat, the iconic 31-foot Moppie, to its last, a 38-footer built and raced in the 1980s. Mike carted her remains to a warehouse and began treatment. While Mike was able to stabilize her, Nick later saved her by transporting her to TNT Custom Marine in North Miami for major surgery.
