17-foot 1969 Larson All-American

This is a one owner boat that was garage kept it's entire life. Mr. Smoot (yes that's his real name) bought her brand new in 1969 for his family to fish and ski with. After his children grew up and left home, no one in the family had an interest in her anymore so he winterized her and stored her in his garage for the past 21 years. About 4 months ago, he gave the boat to his granddaughter to do with what she pleased. She didn't have any use for the boat so she put it on the internet for sale. I restore antique boats for a hobby. I was just browsing for my next project and came across an ad that said "old boat for sale ran good 20 years ago make me an offer." The picture was of a V hull under an old dusty canvas boat cover. I called the number and all she knew about it was her grandfather bought it new and took her mom and the other kids fishing and skiing with it and it had a car motor in it. I asked her if I could come look at it. So the next afternoon I pull into her driveway to find a 1969 17 foot Larson 166 All American that was in pristine condition with a 3.0 Mercruiser engine and a spotless Alpha 1 Mercruiser outdrive. I made her a fair offer, told her what I planned on doing with it and waited on her reply. She looked at me with eyes tearing up and said I will be right back. I thought boy I just screwed this up. In about 10 minutes she came back out of her house smiling from ear to ear. Just then a 1966 Chevy pick up pulled up with an elderly man and a middle aged (mid 50's, my age) man inside. It was her dad and her grandfather, Mr. Smoot! After introductions, Mr. Smoot looked me dead in the eye, told me 20 stories about the boat and how they all loved her, especially his youngest daughter (the girl's mother). He said he only had one thing to ask me to do. Please make sure his daughter got to see the boat finished before I sell her. I agreed, shook all their hands and left. She will get to see her today, not a picture but my wife and I are taking Belle (that's what they named her) over to her house so she can see the boat brought back to life. So here's what is for sale: New upholstered seats on the original frames (all done right here in Bristol, TN, U.S.A.). New white side panels on the ORIGINAL top, done at the same upholstery shop and still soft as it was the day it was made. (I went with white side panels to give it that extra classic look.) The floor in this boat is solid with no soft spots or rot. New EVA 3M marine faux teakwood non-slip flooring. New carpet in the bow/forward storage area and on the side storage areas. Brand new upholstery on the rear jump seats done in 2010 when the family thought they were going to restore the seats but something halted this idea and they were stored in plastic bags inside cardboard boxes. I didn't have them recovered to preserve the originality of the boat. All new light switches and wiring up front. New light bulbs in the bow and stern lights and the instrument lights. They all work. Original Taylormade spot light that is super bright. ORIGINAL FACTORY TRAIN HORNS that are SUPER LOUD. New bilge blower, blower tubes and switch. New fuel line from tank to carburetor. New brass fuel shut-off ball valve. Two new fuel filters, a canister type before the pump and a Holly clear glass water separator before the carb. New rear view mirror. Replaced old mechanical fuel pump with new electric fuel pump. Carburetor rebuild. New spark plugs, points, condenser and spark plug wires. Fresh oil and filter change. Three new, brushed stainless motor cover hinges. The transom in this boat is solid inside and out. All chrome parts on this boat are factory original. The wind shield is original with excellent clarity and minimum fine scratches. The paint and gel coat are in excellent condition and high gloss. The hull has minimal bottom scratches and side scratches. [I only do quality restorations on boats with good bones. If it's safe enough for my grandchildren to be in, then it's safe for anyone. My wife and I did all of the work to this boat except the upholstery, including 20 hours of buffing and waxing. She's a beautiful , great running , great riding boat with no issues. Thank you for looking, Tam and Dave]

18 Feet 1993 Packard Gentleman's Racer

One of only three “Gentleman's Racers” commissioned by the Packard Boat Company to be hand built by upstate NY boat builder John Ford as well as Gary Scherb of Old Time Boats in Florida. The three boats were personally ordered by Bud Finkl, president of the Packard Boat Company and are based off of lengthened plans of the Hacker Speedster 16'. Of the three boats built, this was the president's own personal boat that he kept from new until his passing. This boat is powered by a Chevrolet V6 by specially built by Flagship Marine Engines in Punta Gorda, Florida. The transmission is said to be have been built by the Chevrolet Corvette racing team and was told the running gear was $30,000 the time. Boat is capable of speeds of 55-60 mph and uses hydraulic steering for easy controls. Wood is Honduras mahogany and coated with epoxy sealer with 12-14 coats of varnish and has a beautiful, deep finish. Packard Boat Company of Sarasota, Florida designed and custom built retro-styled powerboats from 1988 to 2002 in very limited numbers and were known for their very high quality and great handling based off of 1920's-30's designs. The Packard Boat Company President, Bud Finkl was a retired engineer, boat racer and a 3rd generation steel worker and his family originally made parts for the Packard Automobile and Boat engines. Per Boats.com “For Bud Finkl, the president and CEO of Packard Boats, classic "gentlemen's runabouts" are something he remembers from his childhood not only because his family had several, but because his father's General Marine Corp. built more than 2000 mahogany runabouts between 1939 and WWII.” Bud Finkl wanted an all wood racer of his youth resulting in this specially commissioned boat with a “2 person seated pilot area in the rear with a forward 2 passenger seat just forward of the midships.” Titled a “1918 Packard,” it was completed in 1993. Bud Finkl showed this boat from NY to Florida and the family said it was only used in fresh water, which is evident by it's excellent condition. After Bud's death, the family kept the boat in their collection for another 13 years. Seller acquired directly from the Finkl's family. Boat measures at 18' with a beam of 5', the boat has always been garage kept and never used in salt. The second sister boat, “Pub Decisions” is in Oklahoma while the third boats whereabouts are unknown. Boat includes photos of Bud Finkl personally driving this boat. Call for more photos, with questions or to arrange an inspection.

16 Feet 1947 Chris-Craft Rocket

This model is also known in the Chris-Craft record books as a “Special Runabout.” The boat was bought in northern Michigan in the summer of 2016 and was in need of restoration. A complete restoration was conducted over the next three years from 2017-2019. This Rocket is wearing its atomic blue hull paint replicated from the original color. Due to the wood shortages following WWII, as well as the increase in demand of power boats in order for Chris Craft to fill orders, some boats were made from white cedar not mahogany. This model being the only Chris Craft boat made completely out of white cedar, varnishing does not have a similar appearance to mahogany. Leaving a few examples of this model to be painted in the only paint available in the Chris Craft Factory, “atomic blue,” or Chris Craft engine paint. Estimated to be one of 40 hulls originally painted in this color “atomic blue.” This Chris Craft is currently in heated winter storage and available for viewing and testing (weather permitting).
