Thanks Terry, I left the guy a message. I have time Sun I can drive over.

We'll see, and I'm interested in an industrial sewing machine too...

Thanks again,

In the background is a barrel back so I called to check it out, hoping for something special.
He said it was a Vag, so I went and looked at it.
Turned out to be a 55 Vag, V 10-18-55
It's been painted blue below the splash rail, white above and on the inside a long time ago.
Looks like someone roughed up the hull with 80 grit to get the paint to adhere.
Stringers intact, no corrosion. Maybe signs of a couple small hull patches (Bondo or something under the paint) on the bottom but saw nothing on the inside.
He does have the stern castings.
He's asking $800 but no title to boat or trailer.
It would probably clean up but just too much on my plate to fool with. If it was pre-52 I would have bought it.








PS... be prepared to spend a few hours with him because he's got lots of vintage stuff to ogle or buy. Lots of small antique, rare kickers, toys, robots, cars, motor scooters, cycles, trikes, yada, yada, yada. I spent about four hours with him. Great time!
Oh, 2 hydros and a finished CrisCraft with Merc 450. Nice!

See the trailer on the right, it's full of upholstery material and he has two sewing machines for sale...I was tempted.

You may be right. But I'd describe that as a closed bow, not really a sleeping area.

Anyway, no reply last time or this time.... i wasnt a buyer so.....

Thanks Troy, but I already have 1 boat I have to drive cross country for, I was asking for info because I've never seen FCs described as double hull, nor many listed at 17ft.

When it was posted before, I did ask for some pix, but never got any.

Kind of like you, if I see 'em, and whether I'm interested in buying it or not, I often post 'em for others.

Just described as a model I'm not familiar w/, perhaps not an FC or just poorly/wrongly described..

Have a great end of the week.

Ever watch the movie "Shattered Glass?"

Demand photos, before any negotiations.
