    After chopping the windshield, the seats were too high  I made these and now I’m a couple of inches off the keel.  Now it’s a low rider..  T seat back folds forward to make it a bench if you want to sit higher of flip around for a picnic   2ED5619A-3D0E-47A4-9602-2C5A1E029D33C742C486-F37C-4877-8F15-374B1AB2C419205DBAEA-A025-4161-A8FC-11EF8DBDD8826201B65B-5260-416B-9076-40A990F58050

    3282960E-F8C1-4A86-B533-C3FA9D59A834I’m calling this one done, for now.  I picked up a ‘69 Mercury 35hp for it but that’s going to be a winter project.  For now. This thing is a blast!   It barely sips gas, turns on a dime, it’s light as a feather and I can actually surf and slash in other boats wake.

    Anyone else into vintage boats?   It’s good, cheap fun.

    It’s a Dura-craft Sportsman.  The title says 65 but I think it’s a bit older from what I’ve seen on the web.  Like a 50-51 based on the serial numbers. The current motor is an 85.

    Love the boat!

    I'm at the age where "fuck off", "fuck you", and "fuck it" answer most questions.

    Killer float!!!

    Chopping the windshield led to some cool unforeseen mods it sounds like.

    Nice work! Love the details!!!

    We will build it if it comes.
