You should junk it


I'll come take it off your hands if you want -



Really though, you might be better off to part it out or you may be able to recover most of your money if you sell it as is.

Not exactly $2K (not new either) but fresh rebuilds go for around $1200 to $1500

I would check the stringers in the transom. When My dad sold his '67, the transom around the out drive was squishy.

It was a great lake boat though. Real deep vee, reliable motor, and quite stable. We had alot of fun on that boat.

a few more pics of it...

the six runs great. I had a couple buddies over and they said it started better than a lot of boats. A few cranks and VROOM. PLus, I personally like the wood on the bow. So far the majority of votes say to fix it.

here are a few more:

No, it was south of Plainwell for $600.

On Douglas, a little north of Cooper?
