Doh! I'm sure you'll think of something. You could always use some sort of adhesive to bond it to a backing plate of aluminum, re-drill your holes, and rivet it back on.

Where is that Feathercraft? I just found out my boat is leaking through the transom seal, intead of through the bellows like I thought it was. I might be in the market for a new boat in the very near future...

Looks like its in Wisconsin, judging by the letters on the side of the boat. Quite aways from Austin but may be worth it rather than fix your current boat's troubles.

This thread is a curse 'cause I have been checking all the classifieds around the Southwest for FeatherCraft's. Wife says I'm crazy.

Same here, flyfshr. I love this thread, and I hate it too.


If you're just looking for ANY aluminum runabout-type boat and it doesn't have to be a Feathercraft, you could also search for the Lone Star boats that I mentioned above. There are often quite a few of them for sale in the Dallas area, since their factory wasn't too far from there. I see some on the Dallas Craigslist right now in fact.

You just gave me an idea...
Cut a round piece of left over red plexiglass a little larger, to encase it in.
Kinda like a protective cover.
Would be too kool if could make light up from behind...but is silver backed.
Will test for visabilty.

54 years it survived, and I bust it.

You're probably right-- I certainly won't take any offense. I don't own either an Airstream OR a Feathercraft...

...yet!

Hey Brad! You're not crazy! Restoring these boats goes a lot quicker than restoring a trailer... and it's marginally cheaper, too! haha!

Wow, no kidding.

flyfshr-- looks like you need to "Buy It Now" and get yourself up to Wiscy ASAP. $849 appears to be a bargain for these hulls...
