If the Vagabond restoration hadn’t about wore us out... That is a great price and a very cool boat. Somebody buy it so I can stop thinking about it, please.

As far as I can see from quite a few Feather Cr4aft the smooth gunwale ribs were before 1957  
I have 2 Fleet Ranger 1s and one has smooth gunwales and the other has ribs  
Also the Vagabonds before 1957 did not have the bird bow handle , 1957 and later they did 

Just my .02 worth

Skibo

what ive learned from the guys is the leather look was made in Canada, and the ice flake look was made in USA. 
Not sure if I’m correct but guessing the machine rolling alum out or maybe the supplier of aluminum would be the difference?

So evidently those features became adopted by Feather Craft in Atlanta on at least some later models. I wonder if the leather pattern deck skin is on all Skibo's.

We had the beautiful Islander run up to the Emory River with us yesterday and it has the ribbed gunnels and so does Marc’s Clipper.

That's a great deal.  Somebody needs to snatch that up.

Helluva deal in my humble opinion. I'm soo glad I've decided against restoring another boat.
Otherwise, I'd have contacted you by now. GLWS

To the best of my knowledge late 56 to maybe mid 58, at two different locations, first the Fleet manufacturer then sold to another manufacturer in the later in Welland,  I have only seen Rangers and Cartoppers, If they made other models it's news to me

That is surprising, but sure enough it is the leather pattern and the Fleet gunnel rails. I wonder what span of years Fleet Feather Craft was producing boats, and what models?

Welcome, that looks like a great deal, can't see any problems selling her.
being Canadian  and looking at your pictures, I am surprised to see the ribbed gunnel rail and riveted over top of the deck material, that is a standard feature of the Canadian Fleet FeatherCraft, I can't quite make out the texture of the deck, is it the ice flower or does it look like leather grained?, I do not believe any ski Bob's were ever made here, especially at the later date you figure, cheers and best wishes selling 

just got a zoom in, I will be damned it is the leather texture, that just surprises the hell out of me
