    Newbie! 1979 17' Runabout

    Here it is - brand new second hand! Pretty stoked - nice lines and rides great - previous boat was a 16' Hourston-Glascraft.

    HIN is GPL17544M79G-7

    Welcome aboard Rideout. Very nice looking 17.

    Nice looking boat...w/140hp it should scoot! I had a 17 with 115hp and it would do 47mph trimmed out just right.

    You got a very nice 17. I looked this one over and found it to be a nice well preserved boat. You’ll enjoy it a lot. You probably have already learned that it’s propped to pull 2-3 skiers out of the hole. Present prop tops out at 40mph.
