I reserve the right to end the auction at any time. $300 deposit required, balance due with cashiers check, money order, cash, or a personal check.BoatOriginal and nearly complete 1962 Flying Scott produced by Robert McCulloch. This was the Bentley of boats during the golden age of boating in the early 60s. At a time when you can order a boring old fishing boat from a Sears catalog this one had it all. Includes:Deck that has been redone with 3m vinyl laid out in 1-3/4: strips. This gives the vinyl an authentic plank look, the white gelcoat underneath gives the appearance of caulking. The whole deck has been coated many times over with automotive urethane for easy maintenance. The deck will last for a long time as long as the clear coat is taken care of.Folding windshield Bow seatsFolding swim ladderHorn, running lights (I have the spotlight also but it is not pictured)The interior has been re-done with marine vinyl and the seats and the seat bases replaced with new wood and hinges. The top and bottom of the sides and the 4 pieces in the rear were replaced the same. I also have the two faux taillight pieces that go on the rear of the deck at the stern. (not pictured)Has the hidden bimini rails but needs fabric put on.The bads:The hull is a little scuffed and scratched. There is no significant damage to the fiberglass.The base of the passenger seat broke at the corner and will need to be repaired. There is a bit of Nautolex in the ski rail that is peeling at the edge.There are 4 smallest pieces of interior trim that are missing (in fact this is about the only thing missing from the boat). The 2 pieces in the rear of the compartment and 2 pieces on either side of the access to the front bow hatch on the interior.Overall the boat needs a little TLC but nothing major. The worst part is those 4 missing pieces. MotorOriginal flying scott motor that came with the boat. The motor was completely disassembled last year and the head was taken in to get surfaced. New thermostat installed, new coil and rectifier, new points, rebuilt carbs, new plug wires, new NOS no gap plugs.All the enclose pieces were powder coated white except the pivoting motor mount.Lower unit has all new seals and a new driveshaft needle bearing. The gears work fine and the boat shifts good. No leaks in or out of the lower unit gear oil.Thermostat cover had 5 helicoils installed so now you can remove it anytime without fear of breaking a bolt.Good compressionBattery is about 1 year old.New marine poly something or other fuel tank installed. The original one was metal and rusting inside. 12 gallons I think it is. Have 3 spare props in various pitches that fit.Spare beehive prop nut (very hard to find)Some spare NOS spark plugsThe motor does have a few places where black exhaust smoke seem to be escaping and staining the outside of the enclosure. Not sure why since it has a new gasket under the power head.TrailerThe trailer is original to the boat. At somepoint someone may or may not have converted it to a dual axle. I am not sure. There have been numerous bits added on over the years. Does have a new winch and new tailights installed.Needs new leaf spring bushings. They are okay around town but i wouldnt take any far trips without getting them replaces. They squeak quite a bit.Needs new rollers under the keel.OtherBoat and trailer has a clean and current CA title.Will include some misc ephemera, old ads, magazines, etc.Have a few spare parts...a carb, spare tire, controller, bits and pieces.I do not want to make arragements for shipping, please take care of that yourself.
