This boat is at Grand Lake OK, just north of Ketchum HI 85. Looks like something JFK would Ride in. As you can see it Huge next to the pick up. Love these Classic old boats. Its pretty well wasted, I have jumped the fence and peeked over the back of it. Off to the side of it is removable hard canopy you cant see. Wish I had lots of time and money $$$ to restore her. Can you imagine how Sweet that would be pulling up into Party Cove with this beauty.....

Never heard of the Great Loop, thats pretty cool! Perfect boat for that,,,,,

I wanted to climb in it but there were wasp flying all around the inside. It had this huge bench style coach and at one time nice wood work. Could see some of the hull, needs all new boards and runners. Wooden hull boat. Im going down in about 3 weeks to open the lake house. Gonna try and climb in all the way this time.


Dont the the SS Minnow will go anywhere on land ! Thats Funny.........

Pretty sweet old boat, but you know that would be a HUGE money pit.

It's the old Catch 22: You don't spend that much on a boat without outfitting her with the right gear!
