      I believe so, but now that you mention it, I think I may of put 20 or more gallons in it.

          What's your guys opinion the price point for this setup? Inquires seems slow, I known the season here is coming to a close.

            It sure looks great in all the photos.[)]

            Maybe include some more details in the description. For instance, when you say "Fully Restored in 2015" what does that mean? Stringers, Deck, Transom, gelcoat, paint, etc.? Where/who did the restoration of the hull? Any photos of the restoration available? The newer engine is a real +, with almost 2 yrs warranty left. I assume that is Mercury Factory warranty, and it is transferable? New prop with only 20hrs?

            I think another big issue facing sellers of really nice older boats is the lack of any lender that would be willing to finance a 40+ yr old small boat. I believe that you need to find a cash buyer. Lots of willing buyers may be out their, but unless they go the Equity loan route, or can pay cash, your boat is not a choice for them. Lots of guys with $14K cash want bigger boats, even if they have to finance.

            I'm going to check out a newer, but still too old to finance, 17 this afternoon. Now that I've seen your boat, and the photos, even at 1/2 the price I think I'll be disappointed.
