Here is a real classic boat that will get spectator attention whenever it is in the water!  It has additions that could be easily removed if you want the original look.  Or, it makes a good fishing boat as it is equipped. This boat and trailer package is form my brothers estate.  So, I have a very good knowledge of its history.  I have titles for boat and trailer and I am personal representative for his estate. He purchased the boat when it was only a year or so old.  It has always been stored clean and dry indoors. It has not been used for about the last 10 years.The boat is complete with electric remote controlled trolling motor, electric 12 volt trailer loading winch, 1961 Sea King 8885 trailer, electronic depth finder, fold-down canopy, Evinrude 35 hp twin outboard motor and gas tank.  LOOK carefully at the pictures! What you see is what you get!I have not tried to start the motor. But, I have pulled the starting rope and it does turn over.  There was some gas in the tank and it smells normal to me. The motor ran fine the last time it was used.  The electric trolling motor does not have a battery.The trailer tires are very old and should be replaced before towing. Also, the wheel bearings should be serviced.  I will not be held liable for any towing problems the buyer may encounter.  There is some damage as seen in the photos because of a too-close encounter with a garage door track!This is a vintage boat and is therefore offered for sale as-is with no warranty or return accepted.  The boat must be removed within 30 days of bidding close.  Or, the buyer agrees to pay a $50.00 per day storage fee for each day past the 30 day period as a condition of this sale. This is a CASH only sale and must be paid in full prior to removal.  The buyer is responsible for arranging for and implementing removal.
