Do you own a Classic Boat?


What kind(s) of Classic boat do you own?

Back in the mid 70's to 1985 picked up an Aquabird that I dropped a 50 hp Evinrude V4 that had a seadrive on it. After having the shaft shortened took her out for skiing. Top speed was 36 mph but it could pull 4 skiiers! The transom was rotten (didn't know it at the time) and it cracked while out on an inlet by the Atlantic Ocean. Tore it completely down and rebuilt it from the ground up. Back then Sear's Roebuck had a boating catalog and all the lights, horn, windshield, etc. came from Sears. Was a nice boat, finally sold it after ordering a new 1986 Regal 185 Medallion with a 190 hp Mercruiser and Alpha 1 drive in January 1985. Took possession in June and kept her like new until early 2013. Miss that boat.
