Update..... Hold for Update......... The Lone Star didn't sell. The EL didn't get one bid. What up peeps? It would be here if she weren't in TEXAS.

Thanks, It's hard but I really love every minute of it! one task at a time, Two previous owners gave up on her. I think they managed to basically throw everything away that pertained to the boat. So it has been a lot of discovery and research. I did read in my 1959 lonestar catalog That The El Dorado is "the station wagon of the Lone Star Boat line up" i guess I will have to set the rear pop up seat backwards. so the kid can experience what we did back in the 70's

Den, the first time the boat hits the water the hard work will have been all well worth it.

Tin, That's a pretty nice ship for sure! It looks like it's all there the windshield is a big plus, I have to order one and it's 425.00. seat brackets, dash with Am stereo. Motor is a little weak for that size pony, but what is really nice is the external bracket for the outboard. that frees up a lot of room. If it was closer I would buy it. I spent all day in my beast sanding and prepping for primer and paint. even though it was in the yard I enjoyed it.
