Vintage Fiberglass Boats

I've see a few poster's handmade canoes posted here. Does anyone mess with Vintage fiberglass boats? My Scamp is on the back burner until summer but to keep myself occupied I bought a 1959 GlassCraft boat with the Merc 78A dockbuster engine. Any thoughts? The first one is the one I just picked up and the second pic is one that is restored.

I picked up a 1959 Glasspar Del Mar that I was going to restore but my health got in the way and I ended up selling it before I could even get started.

There's a 59 Del mar on the Portland Craigslist right now. I'm more into the BIG FIN boats that look like 57 Chevys.

Gage is that your tow vehicle? That is nice I'm looking for something like that.

Steve I've always loved those those Boston Whalers.

You don't want to know what a 1956 Ford F-100 Big Back Window would cost

My first car was a 1957 chevy sedan with 86,000 original miles 283 with 411 rear end (towing package). I paid $100 (from my grandpa).

Yep, just haven't had a chance to tow the Burro with it yet. I also have a '59 Ford Wagon that I use when the rallies or gatherings are futher than 150 miles. It's known as comfort.
