Default I found my familys boat that we grew up with!

After alot of ground work I have finally found our 1st boat. 1969 Larson with a 4cyl Chevy - Mercruiser. My dad bought this boat when I was 6 years old and we spent every weekend on it when I was a kid. We'll be restoring it back to original condition and giving it to my dad as a surprise gift. He doesn't knowI have it - BH

Options:

Air horn
Remote spotlight
8 Track
A nice oak tree - haha

Yeah, yeah, who are you trying to kid BH? You're going to "pop" that hull and use it to dominate the Factory classes next year!

"Dad's boat", what a load of malarky.... Us OSO guys didn't just fall off'n the turnip truck yesterday!

That is absolutely wonderful!!!!!

Did the tree come free with the purchase of a pre-enjoyed boat???

I spent many days on a Larson as a kid.

My Dad had a 1966 Larson, 15ft with the 65hp Volvo/Merc I.O.. You raised the outdrive with a crank that was in the engine compartment!

Cool, just add a blown 633CI and a #6 drive and Dad will have the time of his life.
