I bought a small vintage boat the other day, I have been looking for one very low priority and had specific criteria and this one fit it... It was $800 (Paid $650), has a trailer, clear title, runs good, already tagged and lake ready as-is. Being a vintage 1963 boat makes me like it more. It is not too small, not too big and just right for me.

I could take it out now, but I want to give it a tune up, redo the wiring and steering linkage first so I feel totally comfortable. Otherwise, it needs nothing but some cosmetic stuff (Like seats :lol: )...

I look at it like a teardrop, a sweet and simple little vintage cruiser! These boats are all over the place for super cheap, but no one ever has the dang title, or it won't come with the trailer or the engine isn't there or hasn't been started is 12 years (but it ran good then... LOL ! )

Looks the same as my old Sea King that I cut up last summer. Fun boat, but lots of rot in the floor thanks to age & neglect.

I actually drove by your place last Friday. Didn't have any time to stop by though

Love the check in thread.
Good to see folks are doing well and busy.
Charles is building our daughter a small (30x30) house and that is taking all his time and $. I've just been busy at work, working in the shop getting ready for fall shows, I did an awesome project, a Rustic Bathroom for my nephew, and baby stuff.
We have 2 grand sons due this year.
Charlie is due Aug 29th and I will be heading to Germany for his arrival on Aug 26th. Logan is due around Christmas. I've been busy in my spare time doing baby stuff. LOL refinishing a rocking chair and making blankets, towels etc.

No camping for us until Beavers Bend 2014. Hopefully we can take a teardrop vacation next year as Cassidy and James will be back stateside.

Still here. I haven't done any camping during the summer. I've been just been hanging out on the beach at Isle Du Bois in the morning or evenings.

Here are pics of my summertime digs :D

Bob's mom passed away this summer so we have been occupied doing family things. We are looking forward to seeing everyone in October. Looking forward to some good Gumbo and seeing all our TnTT friends.

I am so sorry to hear about Bob's loss, camping is good for the soul, I hope it helps mend the fabric. It has always been great medicine for me.

We're still around. Had to do some repair on the WW2. Little plywood separation. Spent most of the spring helping son # 2 convert a 18 by 25 by 12 ft high boat carport into a cabin down at Warsaw and spent the hot part of the summer getting the east side of my house resided. Started that 3 yrs ago and finally got it done. Looking forward to seeing you all at LCG.

I'm still alive. I have not been camping this year, but plan to be at LCG, for sure. I've had a lot to do, and it's been so hot and dry.
