Pretty decent find. A little fixing and you'll be the envy of the water. I'll be watching and following this thread.
To be fair, the vintage aluminum world is where I spend all my time. lol Much of the old stuff rarely has ID plates - and certainly no HIN info - so the construction and the hardware are often the only clues. This one was really wild, though. First Nelson boat I've ever seen. The panel construction and the splash rails are really unlike any other brand with which I've spent any time. ...also to be fair, having the Heating Assurance plate with an address makes it almost a certainty.Man, I wish that I had your attention to detail. Great catch on the rivet pattern! I just went out in the rain and pulled back the cover to check it out! --I could have just checked out my own photo, but, you know, senior citizens...
Just food for thought, if your going out in the ocean with this I would rather have too much power vs just enough.. I'm guessing that it's only about 5-600 lbs. The 1990 Yamaha 85 that it came with launches it almost out of the water at half throttle. The 35 should be about right.
