Do you suppose Feather Craft did the modifications?

You can find a lot of what your are looking for off of eBay. My go to place for cool vintage boat stuff.
New transom needed? You will have to make your own. I love mahogany!

Look through CL and FBM for local motors in your area, might have to travel a bit. EBay has motors too but usually you can't see them before you buy, plus shipping. Do you want to restore a motor yourself or look for a restored one?
Check out "classic mercury outboards" they do restorations, never did business with them though.

Good luck have fun!

Possible early 57 Rocket.?? It would be great JOE J. if you can post the entire serial # code off the back ,upper right transom.... I recall reading another owner saying he had that smaller side Fish style logo after 56.?? Most Rockets went on to the longer different color panel.

Does anyone know what this is?
Closest I could find was a 1959 Feather Craft Rocket.
Can anyone help me find a replacement motor, preferably one similar to original 30 hp Merc. (can I get away with a bigger motor?)
I also need to find a new steering wheel, cables, windshield and transom.
Thank you for any help you can provide.
Joe
