23 Nova w/260 Volvo. Man..what a great lake boat! I still miss it. Have a 28 Scarab w/SC 502 now...it's ok I guess. A boat with a useable cabin and a windshield would sure be nice.

My father brought me a 16 Glasspar with a 25Hp Johnson on it when I was 13 years old, the year was 1974. The boat was old even then I think from the 1950's, it had the cable steering and a double bottom - two bilge plugs at the transom.
