That bridge is a clincher in an 18 wheeler :yikes:




I rode my bicycle across it four times in the 80's. Talk about a clincher...

Ahhh.. yes Dan.. I was just reading about yours !! its a very cool boat !! there's not a lot of good info on these that I can find.. not much good literature showing the years and models.. the little that's there is somewhat confusing without photos of the models and years.. this one doesn't seem to fit to well in the little literature available in the library .. it could be a Duraflite custom 16' but the rear cockpit looks to be longer on this one.. more like the 19' Dura Cruise runabout.. there was a 17' Dura Sweep but I can't find any photos of that model.. I guess I'll have to wait and get better measurements of it.. it looks pretty long.. John

I had one follow me home. I believe it is a 1951.

I found this 16'6" Duracraft Runabout project at a very enticing price ! owner says 1956.. 1956 & 57 look like this.. 1955s & 58s look different.. the line on the port side is a shadow not a crease. just a few hour drive from me..
