Boat Summary
$16,900 (USD) SOLD
Boat ID: 42238

The boat was in great condition, when I stored it, a number of years ago. I paid for indoor storage and the cover was on the boat. When I finally decide to put the boat in the water I called the storage facility to get it ready for the summer season. They were also supposed to winterize it before storage. They said the gas had turned bad. So, they did a complete servicing ( new spark plugs etc.) I took the gas tank to a company that specializes in redoing and lining the interior of gas tanks. I returned the gas tank after repair to the storage place. I asked that they put it in water to make sure it ran well. When they put it in water, water started filling the boat. It was leaking badly. At this point I went to see with my own eyes( in there parking lot), since it had a Wes bottom that we put on to make sure this would never happen. When I saw the boat I was completely surprised. There were a couple parts missing, the Back of the upper part of the seat had been damaged by ( we believe) by a raccoon. I called an expert and he said the boat had been exposed to rain water, and had some water that it held from rain. Obviously the boat had been outdoors. This water had damaged the wood (rot). How much wood I am not sure, but it probably,but not necessarily, needs a whole new bottom. Although it needed refinishing to be show quality when I stored it, it looked good enough without refinishing to turn heads. It is one of the fastest wood boats I have seen as someone in the early 60's replaced the 6 cylinder motor with a mustang v8 motor.
