Default What is it and what's it worth ?

Ok you boat guys-Need some help on this one. I acquired it in an estate, but don't know who the manufacturer is (was) . It measures about 38" long if that helps. Also, anybody's guess on what it might be worth. Thanks in advance for your help-Mike O

It looks lika a Dumas boat. If you plan on keeping it, the worth shouldn't mean a thing to you. If you plan on selling it OooOO I don't know. Drop a potent motor in there and have fun.

It's not a Dumas, I'm thinking that it may be an early Crapshooter as if you notice the engine is offset to the right side.
I contacted Marty Davis as he seems to know about every 'rigger from that era.

Thanks for all your help, guys. It appears that the boat is a Crapshooter from the early 80's. I have posted it on Ebay for sale. Thanks again-Mike O

Yes, that is a late 70's early 80's vintage Crapshooter. The cowling was designed by me, but used by Gregg Huey when he took over the company. The engine mount is in backwards.

Boat would NOT be competitive with todays modern hydros.
