I bought the boat in 1990 from the fellow that got it from the buider in Oklahoma City and brought it to Florence Ms where he used it as a practice sloam ski tow boat in the lake he lived on. I used it on the Pearl River as a ski boat until 2010 here in Mississippi. It has not been in water since but engine was winterized and I crank it every so often . It has been kept under cover since.Just needs TLC and would make a nice lake runner to enjoy also a conversation starter.The trailer is homemade and needs tires.The finish is a little rough with no rot. It has a velvet drive transmission. Wiring is sound with plastic 20 gal fuel tank. I replaced stringers,rudder,freshwater pump,water manifolds,and carb in 1995. One of the first fiberglass boats of its day.
