Default Vintage boat thread

I'd like to see some other vintage boats that people have. I would say vintage if mid 80's or earlier?

I'll start out with mine:

1977 Ranger 1550 (150?) A
75hp Johnson stinger 2 stroke

Getting some major work this summer after I finish the truck. A buddy designs live well systems and other marine things, so we are going to redo all of the livewell, and I think rewire the whole boat. The gel coat is really faded, and the lids to the compartments need to be fixed or replaced.

Grandpa bought it new in 1978, dad got it in 1993, went into storage when we moved onto our lake. I got mad at him for letting it rot in there, so took it out after giving him crap. He said I could have it as long as I fixed it up and he could use it if he wanted.

That being said, here she is.



What it is like now, what it was like when I pulled it out, and most recent documented fish I caught.
