Some clever ads from the day, almost 50 years ago. Thought I would share. Boats have have come a long way since then.

I've gotta 24' Stamas (1984?) hardtop I'm gonna restore. What a tank, comparable to the 24' Blackfin combI recently sold. Simple, sturdy, everything is accessible, huge cockpit. Old like me.

Great boat, The cockpit rules in size. A smaller boat you can actually move around on. No frills, but a great fishing platform.

It has a single F300XCA and his numbers are impressive. I can ask him to post them up.
I actually built this boat, glad to hear its still on the water.

Yes, I remember when you built it and I was amazed how much work and effort you put into it. I remember when you put it up for sale. People should have been fighting over it.
Brad bought the boat and then "Boathaus", Rob, completed it.
The boat lives in Clearwater now and the owners loves it.
Thanks for jogging my memory.
Glad you brought her back. These boats are getting old and you see fewer all the time.

The boat set perfect in the water. I had 200 gals. on board and 3 big people. Idled our way out of the canal and brought it on top to plane. Transision was very fast. The boat fells real heavy. The Tech was running the boat, (his name eludes me now, but it's not his first day on the job. I asked him to run it, so I could look the boat over for any issues, since it has been 21 years since it has floated.
I was thinking, this is going to be a comfy/thirsty boat because it acts like a heavy boat. Just felt like a much bigger boat than it is. Anyhow, we put on a few miles at different rpm's, then he said let see what she has. We were running at 3900 turns at 40 mph. The boat was rock steady and solidly planted. Nothing weird at all. Then he opened her up. Aceleration was amazing. Trimmed out we saw 63 miles an hour in a pretty good chop. The boat stayed planted with no quirks at all.
I've ran a few boats and this one is a keeper. Took it back out later in the afternoon and the bay was white capping. No spray. ran it quarting and could not put any water in the cockpit. Extremely dry.

So here are some numbers ( i'll get some screen shots after my buzz goes away.)

3000 rpm = 31 mph fuel burn 2.3 mpg
3900 rpm = 40 mph fuel burn 2.1 mpg
5000 rpm = 52 mph fuel burn 2.0 mpg
6000 rpm = 63 mph fuel burn 1.5 mpg

Picked Frisky up at the dock and took her for a ride. She is happier than I am.

21" by 15" SDS 3 blade props.

These motors are awesome and have a nice growl at 6000. Very quite and I love the CLP screen and sync throttles. Hats off to Yamaha.
BadA$$ boat! Those numbers are unreal for those engines and looks very economical. Enjoy!

Got Frisky out in some sporty waters on Saturday. Ran out with zero vis with the radar and made it out 56 miles. The front came through and it turned a little ugly within 30 minutes. We still picked off our limit of African Pompanos, AJ's and Red Grouper in the slop.
The old boat was amazing on the 3 hour ride home. Just ate them up and spit them out. She's seen some salt now.
Also, you can pick an area of good hard bottom off my screens if you want to. Theres a lot in this area. My contribution.

Video below. It's fairly boring.
