Donel Lybarger's Fino

Donel Lybarger was from Ohio and Ft Lauderdale Florida. He was a sport from the old school. I had the pleasure of meeting him in 2003 when I acquired a 1962 Chris Craft Roamer that he owned for over 40 years. I wished I had know he had a Fino, I would have got that instead. Mr Lybarger left us for that big marina in the sky in 2010.
  I only discovered he did, in fact, own this Fino when Bill Stephenson (of the famed "Bill's Fino" sent me an 8 X 10 black and white photo of a white Fino (the first picture shown here". Beautiful shot of a running Fino in all her glory.
  Well, I took a magnafieng glass and was able to make out the FL regristration numbers and had them run on the state system just for fun and lo and behold, they came back registered to a Donel Lybarger of Isle of Venice Ft lauderdale. So I did some Google searching and some white page searching and found his son's phone number. That would be Donel Lybarger JR of Chagrin Vally Ohio. Donel JR asked me to mail him a photo so he could show it to his Mother and these pictures are what all that produced.
And I want to say a special thank you to Donel JR.
