Wanna' trade for a Vagabond ...some assembly required? ;)

I see the wink!

I'm anxious to try out the SkiBo. Terry and Nat let me take out their's one time and I was impressed by how well it took to rougher water much better than a Vagabond. It must be the 'rounded V' hull design. I've noticed on Merky's Hawk, which has the same hull design, that he puts out less side splash and at high speed looks to be riding on the narrower center section of the hull with the 'steps' almost out of the water. The Hawk also rides closer to level Vs the bow up attitude of the Vagabond when on plane. I find this interesting but don't fully understand the implications.  

In the 1961 catalog all three of Feather Craft's runabouts had the same hull design. Feather Craft was on the way out in 1961 I believe with both the Rocket and Vagabond no longer being offered. 

 
Stay curious!

Is the wood in good enough condition to use?


It looks like it is and has the original aluminum bolts.. The inside wood is missing though.

Is it a 15” or 20” transom?







20" and looks to be factory wood on the outside.
