1960 Home Built 16' Runabout with 70 HP Johnson

This is a one family owned Home Built 16' Runabout that was built from plans by the current owners father in 1960.  Has been garage kept for 57 of the 59 years.  Owner states that it will still need some TLC to bring her back to good condition including refinishing the mahogany deck.  Hardware may also need re-plating.  Transom may require repairs or re-fiberglassing along with the skeg/keel area. Engine was working when last out of storage 9 years ago and currently will fire with addition of a squirt of gas but does not stay running so needs to be serviced for sure - likely fuel delivery.  Fuel Lines, primer bulb are old and stiff and throttle and shift cables are stiff probably needing replacement. 

Would make an excellent Winter Project for someone.  Has period tandem trailer included but may also need servicing.
