Flipper Manchester, a South Lake Tahoe construction company owner, was originally hired to demolish the yacht. Instead he saved "Christina" breathing life into the boat as art car, converting it for cruising along the Playa in northwest Nevada. Investing more than $35,000 of his own money, he designed a mounting trailer with 10 wheels, added a motor and steering system to replace propellers, life jackets and throttle.
"Christina's unique story sets the tone and provided the theme to commemorate an authentic local institution in a meaningful way," said Jordan Laub, event promoter and owner of VELUFUR.
Tickets are also available for a VIP charity dinner benefitting Tahoe Fund and Artech, Thursday, Oct. 31.
