I'm still having problems finding out which boat this is

I cannot find much more information than the plate with numbers on my fiber form. I very much appreciate the catalog but I cannot find the post with the second half of the catalog. Can you shoot me a link? This was my grand fathers boat until he passed in 1993.it at neglected until a tree fell on it at which point I had enough.I asked for the boat and have a full restore in mind.the hull is in great shape as well as the transom.that I knew for sure.But, I still don't know what type of boat it is yet

It's a 22 foot fiber form, probably mid to late 70s, originally powered with a stern drive and has been converted to outboard with a homemade bracket. Even in our neighborhood it is of questionable value and less the sentimental value is more significant than the need to be practical.

During the 70s Fiber Form and Bayliner were competing for the same market ( as was Rinnell ), the first time boat buyer market was their mainstay.
I'm a little north of you and would suggest that you could probably find a better starter for big project.

Lift up the hatches and attempt to push a screwdriver into the hull stringers and bulkheads.

Thank you for the information.thus will be the project boat.mute sentimental value than any other object I have.we spent every summer in this boat until he passed from cancer.the final work we had been doing too it when he was diagnosed was that the hull was inspected and find to be good.some stringer work was needed and completed.a complete new transom was installed along with the supported brackets from aluminum beans inside where the old in board had been. He put those motors in brand new from the factory and had run them for 16 hours total before he pulled it out for the last time. He poured marvel mystery oil into the cylinders and a pre sea foam additive into the carburetor then sealed them up for later use. For me it's just the completing of a project that I started with my grandfather as a child.to give my children the same opportunity that he gave me.this boat is the reason I am do passionate about being on the water.it may not be the last ocean boat I ever have but it is a dream I've had in my heart since he passed away on my birthday at 12 years old. This old man my best childhood friend would be proud to see it completed so now I start by getting information. Is there a model name that you see
Are aware of? Cuddy cabin? I'm just not sure yet

I'm sorry for your loss and can completely understand your need to follow through on the project. I don't know the model name, I was working for the other guys ( Bayliner etc. ) in the mid-70s and didn't pay much attention to the Fiber Form line.

I'm in Sitka, been in the repair business since the 70s and if there's anything I can do to help, let me know.

Edited, I was mistaken as to your location, I'm a few hundred miles south of you.
