Trying to find info on what kind of boat this is.

Post by ChrisBoat »

Long time no visit here and still have my Valco project on the back burner. Anyway a buddy was moving so he gave me his project, it has sat for some time and I now I can't keep it because I am moving out of California. I want it to go to someone that will take care of it instead of just trashing it, it is a neat boat and unlike anything I have ever seen but before I post it for sale I was wondering if anyone knew what it is?

Made by Reynolds but maybe sold under other names.

I"d love to have it but I'm in N/W Georgia.

You could list it on the AOMCI site for sale. Listing is free and maybe someone close by would be interested in preserving it. It is unique and worth preserving.

I thought about keeping it but I have a 12 foot Valco and I like the tall sides of it so it won the race to the garage.

I have a few months to get rid of it and I just don't want to see it go to scrap.

By all means, please list it over at www.aomci.org in the Webvertise section. Make sure you list the location in the header.
Well worth restoring and preserving and thats a great place to get the boat to the right person for that.

Reynolds Metals Company made these. See my post on page 4 of the "12' Lifetime" thread. My dad worked for the company and we had one for about 30 years.
