1979 Tripp Angler. Restored her from the keel up and then sadly sold when I moved to FL.

Despite the fact that the boat was recently built, and it has out boards on it, Norman at WhiteWater has not changed his boat since he started the 28, In 1992, same materials all around.

That boat has lovely simple but classic lines - I can see why you say 'sadly'.

Thanks, it's an '81 Hatteras 56MY. We have a mutual admiration society because I think you've got the cherriest boat on here and that's saying something because there hasn't been a bad one posted yet.

Old photo, need to update but you get the idea:

It's great to see all of these beautifully-maintained classics.

Here's my contribution – a 1975 Wellcraft Steplift with a 1989 Evinrude 200 XP (which I painted black instead of the original factory blue). It was designed by Ray Hunt. It's a very solid, all-purpose boat that has some great features like floor hatches and a sliding bow hatch that are rarely found today (not to mention the teak).

All of these vessels/crafts have what the newer ones don't, character. I love this thread!

If I could afford the fuel for your boat I'll trade you my boat for yours any day.

If you have a boat that have any ties to Ray Hunt you no it's a good boat. Just about every one who's into offshore fishing no who Ray Hunt is. If you are talking to someone about fishing boats and you mention his name the first thing you think of is the 31 Bertram. The first 31 Bertram was tested out in 1960. During his FIRST test run the winds was blowing 22 knots. Now that's confidence in your product. There are many things that make this boat a great fishing vessel but there's only one thing that really stands out-----It's Deep V Hull. During the test run when the boat was first shown to the public everyone in the crowd laughed at Ray Hunt and talked about the boat to themselves because they wasn't use to a deep v look in a boat. Once the test run was over and the crowd saw how well it handled in rough seas the crowded and the world became Deep V Believers. That day Ray Hunt became famous.

Now I have three favorite boats that have been posted --- the '86 Osmond Beal Custom (submitted by gettes), the Albatross fleet (submitted by theolog) and the 1979 Tripp Angler (submitted by Geokat) Geokat I'm sure you are regretting that you sold that beautiful vessel but sometimes you have to do what you have to do. What really sucks about you selling this boat is that you didn't sell it to me.

My last boat, 1982 28 Topaz. New owner has it somewhere on the East Cape in Mexico. At only 31 years old I didn't think this qualified as a classic but others are posting photos of this vintage so I might as well too.

I like the name (50-50).
