This day cruiser was renowned for the hull design and the smooth ride as it displaced water.  I found this one left to a kid and lying in weeds in a field.  It has received a restoration including new stringers, new transom and new floor covered in fiberglass.  It has been painter and the trailer redone with new uprights, carpet and cradles and new lights.  I think it needs a new outboard.  There is a 90 horse johnson on the boat which could be repaired by a qualified mechanic.  The boat will need plexi windows added to the cabin, new cushiions.  I also had the cabin face redone in new mahogany with a new door to be installed.  It also has new mahogany splash rails.  One of he shops I hired in the restoration lost the logos on the side of the boat and one of the aluminum cabin top supports.  It also has a bimini top and custom bases for captain/mate seats with storage..    This classic small cruiser has great lines and will make a beautiful weekender when completed.  I do not have the time to finish or even use a boat so it must go on to someone who does.  I have invested over $5,000 so far on this boat.    Not much left to make it a head turner on the lake this summer.  I have items that go with it ; a Glasspar pennant; vintage picnic basket and vintage cooler; cup holders , etc.  Thanks
