This is a 1970 16' Mark Twain V-Sonic 16' fiberglass boat, powered by the bulletproof 1967 6 cylinder Mercury 950ss (95 HP) "Tower of Power! Also has the less exciting, but fully functional Holsclaw tilt trailer. (could use some new rollers or put bunks on it)
The hull on the boat has a few scratches, but is solid. New seats, new Lowrance Elite Chirp 4 fishfinder GPS, new stereo and speakers, installed automatic bilge pump with manual turn on, rewired all electrical and hooked to panel switches. All navigation and panel lights work. Tach on dash also works. Fuel gauge is no longer hooked up since I put in a remote tank.
New deep cycle marine battery, new motorized anchor winch. Vintage 6 gallon fuel tank.
The motor is notorious for being underrated, but listed as 95 horse. I've rebuilt the fuel pumps, distributer, water pump, cleaned the carbs and put on new gaskets.  I will take on test run for serious buyers. Can also show running in the driveway. Below is a video of it at WOT.
