Far Out

Wow...those fenders are so cool.
Looks like some type of jet drive?
And a ski pole.

I hear you. I know this can't compete with the vintage boat experience, but it's a fun way to eat your cake and have it, too.

I could see how you could get hooked. Personally, I LOVE fishing, and I think a boat is the perfect companion for that. I just never thought about getting a real, full size boat. We have an inflatable raft, I've thought about a canoe or a kayak, but a boat? I've already ordered a couple books from amazon about fiberglass boat restoration and vintage outboards. It's a whole new hobby!

I am really guessing here and I do mean guessing since I don't know anything about vintage boats. But I did sleep in a Holiday Inn Express last night. The seats are different than the '59 Glass Magic Playmaster. The '59 Playmaster appears to have had built in bucket seats whereas yours appears to have individual bucket seats and the trim comes up at an angle into the fins on the '59. However, the chrome strip does look a lot like the straight trim on the '61 Playmaster on yours.

The huge potential for extreme obsessing alone makes this a worth while hobby, and eventual purchase. I have been eyeing old fiberglass boats with teak tops for while, but don't have any more room, time or energy for that...darn.

This guy rebuilds and sells old Bearcat 4-stroke outboards.

Might look nice on your boat.

Wow, those are nice! And about four times what I'm spending on the boat - oh no, is that where the extra grand everyone keeps talking about comes from!!

Work In Progress

Just installed a front seat/casting platform in mine. Have been working on it for 7 years, almost done.
The Airstream is next.
I love aluminum.

Oh no! I hope I don't have to spend 7 years on mine

I'm still waiting for the signature from the legal title holders before I hand over the rest of the money. Hopefully that will be showing up soon, and I'll get to bring my new toy home.

As a work in progress myself there is no rush.
Some guys make fun of ours and also have had guys say they wish they still had a boat my size (16' w/40 Honda).
We can fish tidal rivers, shallow ponds and tow the kids skiing.

Well, my adorable little boat is home in my driveway. No pictures till morning, it was dark by the time we got it home. I went and picked it up this afternoon because I talked to the title holders and they had signed the paperwork and mailed it out to me. I'm delighted to have it home, and a friend already has a lead on a 1965 40hp Evinrude for it. It's all coming together. Pictures to share tomorrow...

Striper Killa

This is what I fish in at night for stripers.
And anything else that might be available.
