    Thanks guys! We are VERY happy with our "find". Paid $4K for the boat and trailer and put another $2K into it for maintenance and repairs. Now I've got to get a custom cover made for it to protect it for the long haul. This is a one owner boat. I have a copy of his original invoice. Consider that he paid $5400 for it in August of 1972!

    Oh and this is my "Classic Car"... It's funny, because when we were out on the river last Saturday, we were the oldest boat out until a guy with a beautiful old wood Criscraft from out 1940 came roaring past... And this little 18 foot boat handles the big water of the river just fine.
