    Dragged this boat out of a field for free! I hear you laughing!!!

    The engine is a 1977 70hp Evinrude, which fires up and runs sweet as a nut.

    No idea what the boat is! Anyone any idea? She's 16ft x 6ft!

    Many thanks.

    From what I gather, it did have an inboard motor fitted at some stage, and may have had alterations to the transom to accommodate the outboard! Trailer has seen better days, but I think I could get her floating again! She'll only be used on inland waterways!

    Cheers again.

    Welcome to the forum.

    Inboards on 16' boats aren't common, as there's just not much room left once the engine box is filling the cockpit. As to the make and model, well it's not a model I recognized, which isn't saying much. What's it made out of, because it looks like it might be a home built.
