What year and model is this feathercraft? 29 Jun 2020 21:46 #105640

Not too many Hawk I's around..

My '59 has a splash well, and the front storage shelf might be different.. hard to tell in that pic.

Definately a Hawk I. The floor and stringer structure is like that on the Hawks. Windshields would have been installed by the dealer. The original owner could have opted to not have it. Great boats.

The lack of a windshield is not an indicator of the model, most Feather Crafts were shipped from the factory as bare hulls and were rigged by the dealers.
I think the H does indicate it is a Hawk. The i is probably a 1 which would be the model without fins.

I am a OMC 2 stroke fan, especially the 45 CI loopers and the 35 HP motors of the late 70's early 80's.
I have several of each but nothing like your stash!

Thank you for that, I was looking inside the boat and saw nothing. After following your recommendation I found the ID which is Hi 6 330 58 BC (or O). I'm assuming it's a 1958, but which model would that make the boat?

And yes, I own a specialty shop (one of the last few) that specializes is Johnson/Evinrude carbureted motors. All I do is work on these older 2-strokes which just go, and go, and go when cared for properly. Sad to see that BRP dropped the Evinrude line.

You mentioned it looks like a Hawk model. I considered that too, but there is no evidence of a windshield ever being installed; there are no holes for the fasteners where the windshield would have been attached. The bow hood isn't monkeyed with. There is an obvious spot dead center at the helm of the bow where there probably was a rear view mirror installed because the original color of anodizing is still very vibrant there with 2 screw holes.

Looks like a Hawk.
It should have numbers on the outside of the transom on the upper right side.

Are all those outboards yours.

Just picked this up, looked through the various model year catalogues but can't seem to find the right match. Mine is blue anodized.
