1955 Thompson Cedar V with 1958 Mercury 50 horse power outboard.Shifts, idles, trolls, and runs great.Boat and engine near museum condition. Running and in the water as early as 3 weeks ago. Please view info picture for boat history.Boat sold with clear title, trailer is included for free with out paperwork but can be registered as homemade.100% payment upon delivery or pick up.It is electric start. If you look at the Quicksilver control station, the round button on the left is for the key start and the button on the right is for the electric choke. Both are functioning. If you run the battery down, you also have the option to pull start it. It's not the easiest motor to pull over, but in a pinch you can pull it. The engine has 120lbs of compression.The prop IS a solid Brass twin blade. No nicks or dents and is NOT bent. I can email detailed up-close pics of you would like. I added photos of the bow and the console controls. Thompson did a wonderful job with their smooth body lines and sporty/sexy appeal...then they added a rectangle split windshield if ordered by the customer. (Ugly) Thankfully, there are no holes or indication that this boat ever had a windshield installed. Please see pic.I did my best to get a shot of the console under the dash. This is the original panel with switch identification stamped in the aluminum.

The bearings have been repacked and the seals are new. The tires hold air and do have have any dry rot. You can register it as "homemade" or just use a Maine plate (like I do).
