Hi everybody. Returned after a few year absence. A month or so ago, I found this Rexcraft aluminum runabout. Bought it from the daughter of the original owner. They were originally from Oklahoma which is probably how a Texas built boat ended up in Minnesota. Rexcrafts were made in Houston but I haven't been able to find out much about it. It's been sitting in a garage for nearly 30 years. Only one tiny dent in the keel. Original paint is nearly all there and even the interior is original, but seat needs a little work. Had no motor but the Little Dude trailer is quite serviceable. Picked up a West Bend Golden Shark and a Scott built Elgin, both 40 hp. Got the West Bend running first. Redid the impeller and it runs pretty good. Anyway, I've had a few glass boats but this is my first aluminum boat. Amazing how easy the transom was to replace compared to a glass boat, which is probably the only thing I'm going to do to it for now. They are only original once. Interesting how the back of the hull slopes down a little bit, not as much as some old glass ones did but still interesting. Hope you like it.
