It must have been an 58,59 or 60 then because mine is a 1961 and 1958 was the first year they made them! I love that boat! I can do back flips on a wakeboard behind it, I've taken it 7 miles offshore fishing over chrismas break, and its a great booze cruise machine. On top of that I can go all day on a tank of gas that costs $12 to fill up.

Daammmnn that boat must be scary fast with that motor. I used to have a little MFG with 125hp, and used a 65hp engine cover to keep DNR happy with the data plate rating. The back end sat way down in the water with all the xtra weight.

Nice Boston, beautiful scenery an what a way to fill that boat then with bicycles. I hope you tied down everything nicely on your journey? Those axles on those bikes can chip and crack the fiberglass...as well the the handle bars and pedals off the crank arms.

I agree, very nice boat!

Originally it had the wood seats but they were getting a little rough so we replaced them with starboard. And yeah it does move pretty good with the 40! The hitch is a curt hitch....highly recommended!

I'm sorry to hear that! I guess we need someone to run the fast food drive through's, and for that I am thankful for you WVU alumnus!

Just kidding!

The only thing I could find down the road was some downed trees, some abandoned tile and alot of barbed wire fence.

And the pics were taken on my way home from USF to my hometown in Jupiter. Ill be back up there in the Fall getting credits towards my CPA license/ starting a masters degree. Goooooo Bulls!!!!

Also, I averaged 30 mpg that trip fully loaded

Rock on! I'm starting my master's there in the fall as well. Isn't Jupiter near Jacksonville? I used to live in Jacksonville too.
