I have a 65 Arkansas 14' aluminum boat. I have not been able to find much info on it. The original owner was almost 80 years old, and I am not sure the info he gave me was 100% accurate. He told me it was a Arkansas Corvair. I have not found any info on it, nor any info on any 1965 Arkansas boats for that matter. And mine does not look like any other Arkansas boats I have seen. Any info would be helpful.
All the other ones I have seen have a rib that runs the length of the hull on the side. Mine does not.

Well, did you search all over the boat for a makers mark? Mine was hidden upside down on the brace for the transom. If I didn't know it was there, I would have never found it. From your pictures it may be tough to identify. Try taking pictures of any outstanding features, as well as measurements like exact length, transom width, beam, etc. That will make it much easier to identify for either yourself or others here.

This webpage may also help you identify it: It's great for finding old brochures and stuff for classic boats.
