Little Woody

by Randy Moore
(Byron IL)

This is a 17ft 1964 carver comandor.

It is my first boat project.

I purchased this boat a few years ago and completely refurbished the boat and trailer.

The engine is a 1964 90 s series electric shift.

This engine is untouched (original paint).

As you can see from the photos this boat was used very little or well maintained.

I plan on selling this boat in hopes of finding another wood project (inboard)
this link will provide a slide show of before and after pictures

I can imagine the 90hp moves it pretty good. After you run a few more times, any idea on want you want to get for it?
