i had a 1998 9' when i was 14, my neighbor had a newer 10'. i used to take it out fishing in the mornings during the summer. one time i was trying to sink it, but it kept rising back to the surface when i jumped out. i had an old 6hp johnson on it. my neighbor had a brand new 8hp merc. they both planed but his was faster. quite stable when cargo was balanced properly. i would beach it on a rocky shore often so i put marinetex on the lowest part of the hull and that protected it well. i dont have it anymore, but it was a good boat. lots of people use them around the NW, i dont know about the rest of the country. i think they are made in arlington, wa.

This is not exactly recomended but it demonstrates what a small Livingston can do. This one can really scoot along with a 3.5hp & 1 adult.

We have a few around here. In fact we are rigging a 15fter with a F75 Yamaha in our shop right now. I have run the smaller ones, but have not ran the 15. Kind of anxious to see how it does.

SIM... please let use know. There are BUNCHES of Livingstons used as rental boats on Lake Powell. Their simplicity and inherent stability seemed to make them well suited for rental service.

Does anyone know what they sell for??? Tom.
