This message with pictures came to the ACBS website from somewhere in Alberta. What can you identify about this boat?
Les Squires says, “I located a barn find boat from 1959, old guy that has it says he bought from an estate years ago. He can’t find a make of boat but it is 17 feet long and has been stored inside for the last 20 years. He says it is factory built. Not sure about the fins though they look added on. Does anyone have a clue who made this boat. I have not seen the boat in person, he is just sending me email photos. The engine is shot, 1960 Evinrude I think it was.
Any help would be appreciated.
