Description

This is a well made wood racing Hydroplane. A true craftsman made this boat and it has sat in a garage out of the elements for many years. It appears to have only been used a few times, almost no marks on the transom from a motor.
The boat is wood and has metal edges on the seams.. The boat includes a spring loaded throttle, and a cable steering system. I have not used this boat, I just rescued it so it can see the water again. No title or registration, but I will give you a bill of sale. The actual year made is unknown, but I put 1960 so it could be listed.
The boat is 10' 10" long and is 6' wide. It is only 22" high about? The boat weights around 200 LBS. There is NO motor or trailer, so bring a truck or your own trailer. There is no rot on the boat.This would be the bomb on your lake, or race it! Very well made by a gentleman that was a true craftsman. I was going to use this as a décor piece hanging from the ceiling, but I think it needs to be on the water again. It does have a custom cover, but it is very large and probably was made for use while on a trailer? Selling AS IS.
This would probably fly with a 15 or 20 HP outboard on it. This is in great condition and won't take to much to get it on the water again, or hang it up for décor.
This boat is for sale locally too, so I may remove this ad if sold locally. No shipping available, you must pick up. Was previously sold on EBay, but buyer never completed check out, paid, or responded to emails FYI at $ 650
Thanks for looking!
