Long gone many years ago - average quality for that era - a ton of wood all non marine grade, vinyl materials somewhat thin. Transom rot would be the 1st thing to really check out. I would also look for soft spots in floor, stringers and motor mounts inwhich also could be fully rotted. Small numbers that were produced.

So that would be a NO GO. Thanks for the info. Just had never heard of the mfg. I guess now I know why. Sounds like they were kinda " fly by night"
