    Hello, I'm new here and looking at purchasing a new project, the seller has no info on the boat as he inherited it, can't see an ID plate in engine bay? It's 18ft with a 283 V8, boat seams solid (Texas). I need to try to identify for registration purposes if possible?? any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

    I got better pics of the boat, it appears to be planking stapled over plywood. Is this difficult to repair and where can I get the planking? Any help would be great...

    Too bad this lovely boat was stored outside for so long.
    I can't identify it. If you restore it take plenty of photos.
    Does the whole boat have plywood under the planking or only the engine hatch and deck?
    I'd hire a pro restorer to come go through it with a fine tooth comb before you do anything.

    Not enough tumblehome to be a Monaco.

    What does her beam measure?
