Looks like it will be easy to get parts for

I have never even heard of an Eaton outdrive - didn't know they made them 41 years ago.

That hull type is called a Hickman Sea Sled. I rode on an aluminum version that a guy in Sitka, Alaska builds & sells and was astonished at how well it motored, even in really nasty chop.

Well one thing is for certain, one shouldn't have any problems storing their fishing rods.

Kind of interesting. Had I time to e-mail him some questions I might even bid on it. Looks like it might make a good cruising boat and occasional off fishing, on a fairly good day.

Typically, these models come with names like "Aquatic POS", "Homebuilt Screaming Nightmare" or "Do IT Yourself Dreamboat. They can be found as far north as New England, typically stored in un-used tobacco barns and southwards to southern Florida parked in citrus groves.

Anyone with balls enough to ask someone to pay money for this thing deserves better. Like, maybe he needs someone to send him a cashiers' check for $25,000 and a request to send the change back ASAP in the form of cash!

I've got a notorious history of re-habing vintage boats but this thing is nowhere close to being called a maritime vessel, let alone a boat!

Life is too short to own an ugly boat.

I guess this means that there will not be a huge bidding war among us THTers

Looks as though the V only runs to amidships? No photos showing direct frontal view.
Seems like if you came down directly on wave, it would sneeze REALLY HARD!
I agree. One of the ugliest boats I have ever seen.
Oh well.........

I'm wondering if he will sell the trailer seperately. The boat has some nice lines.

Hey! You guys are dissing a significant, memorable and otherwise irrelevant bit of maritime history! That hull was the progenitor of the Boston Whaler and kicked off Ray Hunt's career!

google the "Hickman Sea Sled" and hang your heads in shame as a star of nautical engineering reveals itself!

Go back far enough and a dug-out canoe, is in the Whaler family tree, still have no use for either. "Progenitor" nice word, good thing Webster's was handy.

I'll admit that she doesn't have the classic lines that I like, but for a 40 year old boat, she looks damm well cared for... and that is worth something.
For all the folks diss'n her... what will your boat look, and run like when she is 40?

That old girl is a survivor.

Edit: Take Chaps advice and Google it. Very interesting...

Yeuk! Fugly is too kind a word. What a great way to use up all the potential cabin space. As for dissing nautical engineering, well, in this case the engineer - designer deserves the dissing. IMHO.

Well, the reserve price wasn't met, so maybe we'll see some THTers bidding if it gets re-listed.
