Very nice. Reminds me of the boats in the James Bond film Live and Let Die.

Yeah I'm kicking myself now over selling them. The '75 was still stock so I could have swapped parts to restore the '76. A Wagoner or Scout screams seventies suburbia for sure. Good choices.

My boat does resemble a 1973 GT-150 from the back slightly. http://www.classicglastron.com/bondposter.htm

That's why it has two trim switches... Looks like I better order a spare!

Congrats on the purchase.

That pile of skis, lines, bridles and fuel tanks is all too familiar for me. We had the exact same stuff on the boat my grandfather had while I was growing up. Half of it is still hanging in the garage at his house.
Thanks. Back in '76 when this boat was new I was five. Nostalgia gets me every time haha, it's hard to walk away from a vehicle that brings back memories of my youth. I have a few 70's dirtbikes too.
