I was 14 on the Jersey shore.  Had a Glasspar 14' with a Mercury 40.  Thought I had the "hot" rig.  One day while out cruising for new conquests, a new G3 with a Mercury 60 shows up.  I got beat like a borrowed mule, but never forgot that boat.This boat I bought on eBay several years ago.  Painted the top sides (paint looks amateurish), installed new rub rail, new Teleflex steering, new cockpit cover, new glassed in floor.  New seat, engine runs great.  (Has hard to find trim items, cast aluminum rub rail end caps, aluminum plates, hand rails and original G3 insignia.)  Owned by airplane mechanic (see the wire tie spacing).  Never in water more than 2 hours/use.  Always stored indoors on trailer (titled and licensed to 4/17).  Needs better rub rail on flaired hull components.  Trailer has new tires and wiring.  I took it to Avalon, NJ from Wilmington, DE without issue.Can help with reasonable delivery from Wilmington, DE.
