Show winner? You be the judge! No disapointments here!!
At Vintage Bros we are antique and classic boat lovers first and boat brokers second. We love what we do and would love to own any of the boats we sell. We pair buyers and sellers together for the love of vintage boats.
A cold-molded no-soak bottom was installed on this boat in 2015 by the previous owner who was employed in boat restoration. This was his personal boat. The hull side planks and deck were taken down to wood, stained, sealed, with many coats of varnish applied afterwards. The finish is to die for!!
The original interior on this boat was black and yellow tolex from the factory. It was replaced with Hunter Green vinyl. Having seen the original, I can tell you that the dark green is a signifiacant improvement! The steering wheel looks new and gauges show clear, with easy to read faces.
The 'K' series engine is original to the boat and was rebuilt in 2007 by CD's Engine Service in Hudsonville, MI. It purrs like a kitten at idle and pulls strong through the RPM range. It's a light weight boat and operates beautifully with this power plant. The boat comes with a C-Hawk single axle trailer that was built for the boat. The trailer has spent most of it's life in a garage protected from the elements and appears new.
Wow what a find! This is a turn-key boat that could hold it's own at any boat show.
Once you see it I think you will agree. Call Jim @ 513 678 9379.
