Sanity- I would have bought that if you didn't. I'm trying to finish up my Mustang and then it will be a Chrysler powered Barracuda for me!! BTW- my dream would be a 360 stroker in a yucky yellow barracuda. How is that yellow, is it growing on you?

It has and it's staying yuckytan. The Barracuda will be the next project.

The name on the Carver is "Shelly's Sanity" the mustang will be "Insanity" and finally, the Cuda will be "Committed".

Although...the thought crossed my mind that if I ever came across a 66 Nautique

Not too bad, although NH was still getting light snow when I headed back at 6PM.

The boat has been full of water. It's painted kind of a purple color. The hardware and gauges are all there. I think it's a parts boat.

Bruce,I just looked at "Lucifer" for the first time. I'm really surprised you would have traded away that beautiful boat.Is there a history of mental illness in your family or do you just drink to excess?
Kidding aside,I hope you find it again.

Gary, In hindsight no doubt we were a little soft in the head. It was getting old though and was starting to require more maintenance, and Century had just started making Resorters again, so my two brothers and I bought the new Resorter. One of my brothers still owns it. Beautiful boat, but I'd much rather have that Barracuda today.

So I gather this was some time ago when this all took place.That makes it a little easier to understand. Don't feel too bad.I owned a plymouth hemi when I was 18 and sold it for 1300 dollars because I thought I was getting drafted.I didn't have to go but the hemi was gone forever.

Posted By: Riley
Date Posted: December-21-2008 at 10:06pm
My brothers bought the Barracuda in 1970 when I was 13. They traded it for the Century, which all 3 of us bought in 1980 when I was 23. I spent a lot of time in the Barracuda as a kid. As they were back in Mass working all summer, and I was at the lake, I used it more than they did.

What did you have for a hemi? A Roadrunner?

Bruce,
If you have a friend inside a law enforcement agency, I think they can track the HIN through prior registrations. In New Hampshire (where I have tried to track a boat's history) they are unwilling to share this info with private individuals.The archived information is available but restricted.


Posted By: Riley
Date Posted: December-21-2008 at 10:11pm
Sunapee, I had a chance to go that route. We have a friend that was a state cop, but he just retired. Neither of my brothers could find an old registration or anything with the vin number, so we couldn't do it.



-------------


Posted By: SUNAPEE CROW
Date Posted: December-21-2008 at 10:24pm
Bruce,
I believe that you (or your father) as the registrant are entitled to obtain the HIN from one of the years it was registered in your family name.I assume it was in Maine. The state of ME should have that historical info available. The state is reluctant to share anything about anybody else. Once you have the number, you can work the back door. Good luck. This stuff is like an easter egg hunt. I live about 20 minutes from Webers and some day when I had nothing better to do I was intending to take a look. Looks like the auction is close to over anyway.

Bruce,the hemi was a GTX if I remember right.I've tried to forget about it but I have some "fun loving" friends who take great joy in bringing up the subject when we're all together.I never got it registered because it was set up to run super stock at the drags and I never finished getting it changed over for the street.Someone told me they saw the car a little while after I sold it and they had already pulled out the hemi and replaced it with a 318.I did have a 69 road runner with the 383 that I drove for quite awhile.That was a nice car but nothing like the GTX.I couldn't come close to being able to afford most of my old hotrods these days.I think that's what attracted me to the boats.You can still find vintage boats that are affordable and easy to hotrod if you want to.

-------------

Posted By: Riley
Date Posted: December-22-2008 at 10:26pm
The GTX was a nice car. Nicer than the Roadrunner. A friend of mine bought a mint black '68 Hemi Charger in 1975 for $2,500. He sold it a few years later for something like $2,000. The price of hemi cars is well into the $100k to $200k range now isn't it?

Posted By: farmer
Date Posted: December-22-2008 at 10:45pm

Yes,they are well out of my reach.Just to torture me a little more,I ran into an old co-worker of mine last year who swore he saw the GTX not far from here.It was just parked on the side of the street.The car is hard to miss if it's still painted the same as it was.It was a pearl white base with all different colored "snots" all over it.I went looking for it that weekend but couldn't find it.They probably don't even know they have an original hemi chassis car.Would I tell them?I don't know how that would go.I would really love to have it back,that's for sure.

The boat on ebay. It looks like it has so much weight on the rear that you got to put a bucket under it at the transom or it would rest on the prop. It looks like it's got negative tongue weight.

There's a scum line along the side panels that shows the water line at that angle. There had been enough water in it that the starter was under water and the starter on one of those engines is at about 1 o'clock on the bell housing.

The boat is rough. The guages looked pretty good. That's about it.

The biggest problem with this Atom is the bottom has been fiberglassed. You can already see that screws are pushing out on the glass (in the picture of the transom) from the wood being soaked with water. This is a ply boat and the wood should not be wet!! The hull being glassed tells me there's a much deeper problem. Most likely the ply letting loose from the frames and probably rot in the transom frame - a common area. Glassing is a "quick and dirty" coverup!!

Yes, the interior has been upholstered non original which is reversible. At least the paint scheme on the hull looks close although I would question the bronze bottom paint.



I emailed the seller asking about the bottom. We'll see what he has to say!!!

This guy got carried away. $22K invested in an '81. Might be hard to recoup in this market.

Looks like this might be a good buy if the bidding traffic is light:

It sits high in the water so maybe the foam isn't fully soaked!

yea it's what I had on mine, all you have to do is drive out the roll pin with a punch and swap gears and install and set timing, Eddie, Keith or Mark should be able to hook you up on the swap.

John,
Check out the "Correct Craft Panther" thread below in the general section. Some info on the boat and I did get one answer back (not much!!) from the seller.

I'm not bidding! I've still got a boat waiting for me under a tarp to restore!!

Hey Pete, yeah I just finished reading that thread. Saw the boat and posted before I checked the latest gossip! Interesting find. I wasn't looking at it for myself either but noticed it had taken a few bids already and that piqued my curiosity.

Posted By: 8122pbrainard
Date Posted: April-08-2009 at 4:17pm
Tim,
No, it's not the Rinker - It's in pretty great shape. It's a 1918 give or take 18' cedar strip on oak frame launch. I got it off a island estate up north. It was the original boat used to transport people and push a barge to the island. Lot's of construction supplies went across on the barge! There's a fairly large home, a stable and a green house on the island. Cool old boat! I was able to find some old photos of it that pictured horses on the barge. The original engine was magneto so it has kerosene running lights and a carbide (like a miners lamp) search light. It was converted to electric (probably when engine #2 was installed with electric start and conventional ignition) but I'm hoping to find the original carbide guts.

The Rinker is now priced down to $2500.00. I do not want to store that damn thing another year!! BTW, it's got a new lower unit and a "fly high" pylon I made for the kids learning to board.

Kev,
The launch looks like it's going to be a retirement project plus it sure wouldn't be a very ideal boat for GL. I'd have to stay in the bay!! Yes, if my plan works out, the X55 will be at GL this summer.

Andy,
That's a Skylark. Notice the port side helm. The Universal V6 wasn't made in a RR and since all the Skylarks came with that engine, all had the port helms.

Terp, if you think "DRUGS" cost a lot of money>>>>>>>>>
Wooden boats have a way of separating an owner from both his time and his money.
I ran into the same problem looking for the OEM brackets for the Dart.Those that were correct and those that were CHEAP.
They never seem to be both.I am trying to find a middle ground as to "MY" resto.Pete has been a guide as to what is acceptable and what is "PERIOD CORRECT"
As it stands now , I have as much money in the parts and pieces as I have in the purchase price for the "ENTIRE BOAT"
The old saying is coming into play now as we speak, The cost of chrome,20 pieces,1100 Dollars. Break Out Another Thousand...................Boat dr

John,
The seller may get close to his asking price! They are getting big $$$ for reproduction hardware especially already polished and chromed. Pretty much the only boats people are finding to restore these days are old "grays" that have been out in the weather for years and all the hardware is long gone. Hardware after a engine restore is probably the # 2 cost (excluding labor if you're not doing it yourself). Billy got lucky finding the correct brackets for his Dart but then went through the cost of a rechrome. FYI, those brackets were used on Chris Craft "Customs".
