Default Post Your Old Gal

A few recent threads made me think this might be interesting. A lot of threads about biggest, most expensive etc...well how about oldest. Older boats can be more expensive, and sometimes a bit of a headache but many boaters go that route. I personally will take an older boat over a newer any day of the week. So I thought it would be interesting to see what THTer's went this route with some pics and info. Lets say, 25 years old and up.

1978 Egg Harbor 33. Growing up, there was one in my marina (obviously not old at the time) and it always turned heads with the lines and wood work, and became my childhood favorite. This one I found in 2015 after looking for three years. The galley down and fiberglass house was what made finding these for sale difficult. Since then, numerous upgrades to get her exactly the way I wanted and I'm about 95% there.

I have posted pictures before, but I'll toss some up here. ... My 1957 Hubert Johnson Jersey sea skiff, 63 years young. A comfortable boat that takes me anywhere I want to go.





With her original power.......

She’s a great looking boat!
Egg Harbor did really hit it right from a design perspective on some of their boats. Their 1960’s 37 ft sedan cruiser was also just a great looking boat.

Seeing that Egg reminds me of first time out on a boat salmon fishing in the spring on Lake Michigan. The hot spot for Cohos, Kings, and trout was the old nuclear plant for the discharge of hot water brought the water temps to where all the fish would hang out. I think it was a 36 Egg. A couple of years later I bought my first boat and the rest was history..

There's already an epic thread here on this subject, perhaps they could merge or add these that aren't duplicates

Show your old school vessel!!!

1972 Sea Ray SRV 190. She finally got a "new" engine in 2018, a 1978 engine. Doing fine, ongoing project but a really nice boat.
