Default RE: Share pics of your first gas boat

heres my first. first boat ! first paint job! still original as i built here in the early 80's. Mac watercooled 22cc motor with AMP's drive on it. I still have this boat. runs like a champ paint still in great shape. not the fastest on the lake thats for sure. but very dependable.
