I believe it was a 66 or a 67 but my old man had the exact same boat from when I was about 6 to 15. Had a lot of fun on that boat. Transom went soft and he got rid of it for a 20' 1977 slickcraft. Had even more fun on that one.

My brothers and i share a 1977 Python jet boat with a 427 BBC , berkely pump and through the hull water logs.
Our father and uncle special ordered the hull new in 1977 and built it together, its the closest thing we have to a family heirloom.
I'll try and find some pics of it later, sadly she has been in dry dock the last 2 seasons as my brothers and i havent the time or money to repair the transome and its getting rather tender and we really do not want to scuddle the ole girl..
our primary lake of choice has been Woodland lake in Brighton our whole lives.

Got this Labor day weekend. 2003 Sea Ray Sundancer 260. It sucks buying a boat late in the season, now I can only sit and think about it all winter.

Don't worry, if you're anything like me, the first winter is buying new stuff for your new boat and fixing any little things that might be wrong with it. it will be launch day before you know it.

Due to a hard drive crash last year I don't have any good pics. but here is my 1970 Starcraft, 15.5 ft, 50 HP. The motor is a 1969 and runs awesome. It will do 29 MPH with just me in it, and about 27 with the wife and kids. I am gonna add a small motor to it for trolling this year I think.

My girls and I spent a good part of the day cleaning this old guy up. I think I am gonna get rid of the middle seat in the rear and replace it with a bench or two separate seats. Now that my girls are getting bigger we need to do something different. A new graph/gps is also on the upgrade list.

The old merc came out of winter hibernation with no problem, this has been the quickest starting, trouble free outboard I have ever had. I think I am going to add a gas kicker for trolling though and give the big guy some time off.

I'm picking up an 89 18' open bow Chapparell with the 3.0 I/O. I'm pretty excited, it's my first boat. I should have it within a couple weeks.

I have to go to a boaters safety class now.

Installed some red LED lights from Rigid Industries, these A-series lights are bad ass, this is 4 lights, 400 lumens each with less than .5 amp draw.
