Nice 1969 Dodge Charger R/T

Oh and the Prostar is a classic as well

I like the color scheme. It just needs a little TLC...a good cleaning and get that prop reworked or replaced. I'd like to see some more pics of that windshield. Did someone add a bracket to the frame or is crooked? If I run over a big roller in my Maristar the boat will flex enough that the windshield frame will drop thru and get hung on the vinyl. This gives me a perfect reason not to pull tubes any more!!!!

If you want to blast lady gaga for your kids, you should change that tape deck!
Have good family time and be safe!

A new CNC'd prop will make a WORLD of a difference

Put the boat in the water before you adjust the windshield. On the trailer the hull will sit differently on the bunks than it will with the even pressure of water. It does look pretty far askew, however.

Great boat, btw. If I would have found one in my range two years ago, you guys would see me a bunch more on this board.

Congrats on your acquisition. Nice Prostar, just needs a little love, no biggie!! Love that R/T also. Ever since I first saw the Dukes, always wanted a 69 Charger!!

Well since you asked. I've had two Chargers before this one, a 68, and a 69 C500, i sold them though and now i have this one. I bought it out of southern California 2 years ago. It is and original paint/interior/engine car. All i did was rebuild the engine, replace the carpet, headliner, and tires. The rest is all original as it left the factory in 1969.

Congrats on the boat! First off sick mopar love those probably one of the meanest and cleanest body styles out there.

The boat looks to be in good shape, motor appears that someone took good care of it. A few weekends of brightening and some upgrades and that thing can be what ever you want it to be. Have fun with the family and enjoy!

Awesome boat! Of course, I'm kinda biased, 'cuz I have one as well...

I had the same problem with the windshield extrusion. Mine split in rough water and I had it welded, then re-powder coated. They did a crappy job. I've been trying to find some of that extrusion, but it's been impossible so far. MC wants you to buy the whole freakin' windshield door.

Nice looking boat!

On the windshield, go underneath and loosen all of the nuts (this will require someone topside with a screwdriver holding the bolts so they don't spin). Pull the windshield back to how it should be and retighten everything. If that doesn't work, those windshield pieces can be straightened out with (wait for it) a good yank. The latter method was what worked best on mine. I had a good mechanic with a bit of insurance do it for me while I looked the other way.

Nice choice on both vehicles...

Looks like your motorbox is missing insulation. Maybe not. It likely came with 3/4" or so foam. A few people on here (me included) have replaced with 1" foil lined stuff from mcmaster carr. I can't find the link now. I'm happy so far, my boat seems a bit quieter than the old stuff, which was falling down on the top.
