It was a perfect day to be on the water. That boat looks fine, the seats did make my eyes hurt though, they kept moving. Hope Sun is the same. We were at party cove from 12-7. It was a huge bash, no skin though. We took Darrins boat.

That is the ORIGINAL prop.... I'm sure it is a bit smaller in diameter than it was when new. This boat has spent nearly all it's life in a sand bottom lake in northern Michigan. Sand will wear away at a prop! Boat will run 27 mph all day long. Trolls at 2-3 mph for those big bass and pike really well too.

Glad to see you are being safe and did not get a stepped hull

I remember seeing a 70s porno on those seats! Get out the bleach.

Hi Mike,

Cool old boat. Looks to be in great shape. I like the racing stripe on the deck.
