Re: '57 Century Redux

If you don't mind me asking did you sell the boat and the merc motor together.
What did you get for it?
I thought several time about selling mine but just can't bring myself to do it.

Re: '57 Century Redux

You sold it.
Do you have any idea as to what hp motor was on this boat.

You could do a cold mold epoxy plywood bottom.
using nothing but marine plywood.
