Had a 69 as a kid. You couldn't destroy the thing. No telling how many rough hours I put on that boat.

I had a '66 18' triple hatch barrelback several years back. Great boat! Should have never sold it

They are pretty rare & the prices are climbing slowly.

I think from my converstaions with Biggus that would have had the V-drive on it? I seem to recal the 351's mostly going with the V-drives. The boats are FANTASTIC. Most of them are beat good but they are easily salvagable. Once you get the hang of driving them you can run the heck out of them in some real rough water.
