1970 Boston Whaler Nauset

This classic Whaler has well-documented photos and a very good description. Powered by a 115hp Mercury with a mismatched 90hp cowling this 17′ Boston Whaler should zip pretty good. The original mahogany interior looks to be in very nice condition. Find it here at $7,500 firm on Craig’s List in Minneapolis.

The exterior hull was said to have been “repainted” vs. gelled but still presents well.

The interior is still in it’s original blue gelcoat with cracking, chips and holes consistent with a nearly 50 year old Boston Whaler.

1959 Crosby Fiberglass Boat – Mercury 700 Tower of Power

This fiberglass 1959 Crosby Fish and Ski boat seems to be begging for a restoration. The engine, a classic Mercury 700 6-cylinder tower of power, is said to have compression and turn over. Hull is stated to be solid, so with a little elbow grease and an interior this would be a solid summer fiberglass cruiser. Located in Indianapolis, Indiana, bidding starts at only $399 with no reserve.

The hardware on this boat is period and would be a great addition to any vintage boat. Are the parts worth more than the whole?

The Mercury 700 outboard engine, said to have good compression and turn over might be worth an offer.
