Default Pictures of Amerika, my 1977 AMF/Crestliner Apollo 660

Hello guys. Wanted to share photos of my baby, Amerika. She is a 1977 AMF/Crestliner Apollo 660 Runabout. She is powered by a 1977 115 HP Evinrude O/B. I purchased her in early June and have been making repairs throughout. All the seats have been redone, new lighting, and internal engine work. Let me know what you think of her! She is my first real boat. The photos to not show this, but the name "Amerika" is now on each side of the bow. It was done recently, after the photos.

New, hand-redone bow seats, custom fit by myself. Navy blue to add contrast.

Nice boat!

Looks to be in GREAT shape for that vintage. That engine cowling shines like new! Don't see too many of them around anymore (sad to say).

I hope you enjoy her for many years to come!

Thanks for sharing!

Amerika is a great boat, very rooms and nice ride. The only thing that needs to be done now is a change of the carbs and she is good to go. Stalls at idle.

Probably won't believe how much she was.
I got a great deal on eBay, the original owner lived 1 mile away. The boat, o/b, and trailer was $990!
After everything I have put in it is still under $3,000.

Boat looks great. I have the same boat purchased in 1978. I need to restore it and wondered if you had insite into getting paint colors, stripping and decals.
