1957 Whirlwind, 18HP Johnson Sea Horse, and Trailer

by Roger

For sale 1956 or 1957 Whirlwind (Manuf #8514) Runabout, 18HP FD11 (SN: 151L642) Johnson Sea Horse, and trailer.

All bought new by previous owner.

Obviously it has received a couple layers of paint since then!

The motor dates to 1957 so I am inclined to believe the boat is as well since they were bought as a set.

The boat is ready to run on the water as is or ready for a complete restoration.

The outboard starts up on first crank.

Transom is still as solid as it was new in 1957.

I have used this boat for the past three years and brings with it lots of attention.

I would like 2500 OBRO.
