James, Congratulations on a new old boat!!  That didn't take long at all, Nice!  The boat looks to be in in really good shape too. I bet you are super excited. I would start a restoration thread so you can document all your work too. Looks like a few of your pictures did not come through.  Try posting them again so we can get a better look.
  Is the boat water ready?
Is that a 20-25 HP motor?

Anyway, good luck and have fun with bringing back old memories! Looks like a really good find.

Charlie....English is your friend.   Periods, apostrophes, exclamation points and sentence structure is also your friend.
But WTH.   I still love you......

Welcome Mike, looks like you have a TeeNee under the boat too.

Ask questions along the way, better yet start a restoration thread, it's a great way to document your restoration.

Good luck have fun,
