One of us, whose name I can't reveal at this time, is going to look at it first thing in the morning.


EDIT:

Buzzerbaits will be there at 9AM to check it out. Even if he doesn't want it, he's picking it up. It's in the fold, almost.

If nobody else grabs it soon I may go for it.
When you guys talked to him, did he seem to be in a hurry to move it?

If it were closer it would be in my yard already.

That one needs to get in the fold. Somebody grab it.
(Then we'll get to see pictures of it being restored.) :P

$500? OMG, you are making my head spin, this sure looks like an early boat, definitely not a '58. Admiral would kill me.......Happy Wife, Happy Life....Happy Wife, Happy Life...Happy arrrrrrrrggggg.

I know this may sound sacrilegious, but sacrificing a bow handle off a skipper or like boat may be a consideration for an early boat like this one. Please don't kill me for this suggestion, but......

There are some other concerns to consider, there are no transom braces, did these early runabouts have them? I am not sure, and the two discolored areas on the hull raise the eyebrows. When I zoom in, although it is very grainy, it looks like there may be an aluminum patch. There seems to be extra rivets or screws between the stringer rivet lines.

I just called him up, he does not have the rest of the bow casting nor knows the serial number. He asking $500 though!

I have contacted the seller asking him if he could tell me the hull #, I am not looking to buy it, I will share the info if he responds to me.
