I'm on it Boss.

Measurements are written on the photos. A few extra photos tossed in for perspective.

Awesome find! If my memory is correct the seat tops were wood and the center deck was just a deck ala Alumacraft style and did not have a bulkhead that made up a backrest for the forward cockpit. It also had bracing down to the keel keel like the firefly and flyer.



Hey Lake Racer,

Any other details that you remember about the center deck and front seat?
Any info would help at this point.

That boat is looking fantastic. I’ve never seen such a clean, new looking inside. Great job to all who are working on it.

Thanks for the support guys, it's mostly hard work and perseverance with a desire to learn thrown in with a desire to have a great toy in the end :biggrin:


It wouldn't happen without the help of guys like Nick and Dan B)


Hey Chip,
The catalogue says 7.5 to 16 HP, you know I'm a stickler for that :doh:
