Well said. There have been a bunch of project boats on here that you wouldn't believe how bad they looked on day 1. Mine sure looked bad when I got it. I have thoroughly enjoyed getting my boat to where it is and I still have a ways to go.

Thanks, I'm no stranger to tournament style boats,any boat for that matter had a bunch over the years. I owned a new Pro Star in '88 but sold it in '94. Bought a '74 in '98 and about wore it out, until it's untimely demise. Still own it but is one of those projects that gets put on the back burner. I wish it had a 351. I'll get some interior pics soon interior, isn't great either. Really wasn't looking to buy just looking, he needed money. Stuck a battery in it loosened water pump belt fired it up can't pass up a deal like that. Inboards aren't that big around here, and have no clue why. There's a Four Winns and a Sea Ray with wake towers on them?!! here.

Nice boats, It brought back memories seeing that windshield with the little circular vents, and the one with the fiberglass roll bar. However after 69 pages of die hard stars & stripes loyalists nobody had one of those little outboard Stars& Stripes models I think were part of Cypress Gardens or SeaWorld shows in the 80's

I've found a couple of pictures of my '74. I bought it in '98 for $1,100.00. The one with top was taken in'99 the other in '02. I hated that top. My wife made me install it because of our kids. When I bought it it had no back seat or platform, I added those. I didn't paint it those awful colors. The original colors were white with orange. And I mean pumpkin orange! Has anybody ever saw one that color? Now the story of its demise. I had a rig to tow it beside my NautaLine (starboard side), and did it for 3 years with no problem. Sept. '03 coming back up the Muskingum a 25' or so cruiser cut between my Dad who was following in his Carl Craft and me. Passed me on the starboard side, I was only 30 or so yards off shore line. Long story short swamped my MC and it went down in 9' water. I had it floated that day by a salvage crew. Had 12 witnesses, ODNR never cited the guy, my insurance company said it's only $3000.00 not worth fighting over. I bought it back from them for $400.00. Removed engine and transmission and rebuilt them. The boat has been in the upstairs of my Dad's barn since.
