    Hey guys, I know this might not fall under this category but I just got this boat for basically free and I am planning on restoring it. The good news it has a working early 1960's 45 HP Mercury motor. I cannot for the life of me find any information on the manufacturer or year. There was no HIN. Currently in the process of getting it registered with Colorado.

    Just thought someone on here might have an idea of either the year or manufacturer. Thanks!

    Well, it could be anyone. In the 60's and 70's tri-hulls (also called cathedral hull) were extremely popular. Many manufacturers had their own models as part of their mix. Just google images of Tri-hull boats. However you might want to post this pic (and more from different angles) on FiberGlassicsĀ® - Index - FiberGlassicsĀ® Forums http://www.fiberglassics.com/glassic-forums.. They specialize in old classic fiberglass boats. Someone there may recognize it.

    Boats didn't have HINs before 1972 so you can start there.
