    Posted: July-03-2018 at 11:13pm
Hey guys.
Back on the CC hunt, getting t-boned followed by back surgery killed the hunt for a few months plus. I have been on the hunt for something that could fit into a 21' garage depth on a trailer. I basically limited to a Skier, Mustang 16/17(?) and the Ski Tique's. That being said I had a friend of a friend tell me about his uncle's old 73 skier within a hour of my location. Boat appears to be all there minus the windshield and carb. Windshield got killed by hay bail kicking out the tent stake holding up the cover and the carb got "stolen" after it was removed to do an intake gasket replacement. Intake/gasket still needed but hour meter only reads 381 on the clock(last ran 2.5 years ago (???)). All interior is there just 40+ years old. I don't have high hopes for the stringers being great, but I'm down with the idea of project.

Question is- it was originally a rounded windshield. After a few internet searches it seems like a rare item. If push came to shove and I had to commit the sin of going non original could a square skier windshield fit or even a mustang 16 windshield fit without major issues. Price seems a little high for a project but I wouldn't be driving 8+ hours to look at a boat I may or may not want.

Thanks in advance for any info on the topic

TRBenj,

Ha one with a decent windshield but same intake issue. Wonder what happened to his carb.   The one I was looking at was 15mins outside of Athens with a blue hull

Barracuda is much wider so it wouldn’t fit the narrower mustang/skier... and the skier only ever used the one piece anyways.

I thought the same thing too but then I looked at the 1975 brochure in the reference section. The skier has the split windshield similar to the mustang that same year.

No I had planned on going to look at the other one in Knoxville over the holiday weekend but got sidetracked with a nice batch of kidney stones. If I can break away from work early one evening or one day this weekend going to make the rounds and view the one in Knoxville and pull the other one out of the barn for a more formal viewing.
Anyone have any input on the skier ride handling etc etc??

I was referring to the curved style windshield... the 1gen mustang (65-70) used a very similar one, with a 2-piece curved glass version optional. The Cuda got that very similar curved glass 2-piece style but it’s wider. The Skier only got the more basic one piece version of the curved. The optional skier windshield is square framed... it may have started coming Standard in ‘74 but was available back to ‘71. The 2gen Mustang (16) used the same one (standard, as it was a more upscale boat than the Skier).

Got a few pics from the Knoxville skier that aren't in the ad. I could be wrong but I didn't think diamond plate on the floor in front of the motor was a factory offering. I will post them when I can figure out how to do it from my phone

Yeah, direct uploads from phones/tablets dont work. This was a pretty good fix for iphone/ipad users, but doesnt do you much good. As suggested in that thread, experiment with other 3rd part hosting sites. Did you try the IMGBB or RV.NET offerings? Not sure if they were apple specific or not, but if jbear can do it, anyone can.

Imgur works ok as well.

Floors were Vinyl wrapped ply in 71-72. 73 was a bit of a mixed bag ( possibly some carpet on the floor but maybe not the walls?) but definitely no diamond plate in any of them (or any other cc model, ever).

Finally made it back into the office and had a chance to transfer the photos to the computer and then to here. Looks original but who knows the condition of the motor, and the carpet is something

Ethan,
Look like the diamond plate is there to reinforce the pylon. I suspect there's rot below!

Yeah, I'm sure it's full of rot. 2k seems steep for what it is, 1/2 that still seems a little high
