Borum Star Chief

by Wade Melton
(Spokane Washington USA)

I was recently given a borum star chief 15ft.

I was woundering if anyone has a picture of an original boat so I can see what it was supposed to look like.

I also wanted to know if it is a rare boat, can't find anything on the internet that says Borum even made them except for 1 reference in Borum Boat Library.

Thanks for any info, (

I found a pic from a boat show.

Looks like someone cut off the fins and rounded them in the back.

I don't know if they came that way or not.
