The old Forester pontoon boat had been rotting away on a South Carolina farm for 15 years. Nature had taken over, with weeds and bushes growing up around it in the field where, other than to stop bullets fired during its occasional use for target practice, it sat dormant. Still, its owners, Will and Melissa Merritt, were not quite ready to give it up, as the wreck was once a family boat. Given its sentimental value, they decided they’d rather spend their money on a restoration instead of on something new. They had an idea of what they wanted but no idea how to start. So how do you bring a boat like this back from the dead? You call Edwin McCain.
