Well, I just inherited my grandfathers 1966 18' Sea Hunter Cuddy Cabin built by Schlemmer Boat Company out of Gardena CA. Out side of that, I really dont know much, other than I think she is a beauty. I am not the only one. I have had the boat on the water several times and it seems that where ever I take her, people seem to appreciate how well kept she is, and she has some really cool lines about her as well.
I am very tempted to dig a little deeper than I had originally wanted to. about 7 or 8 years ago she received a new floor, and the interior of the boat does not need a lot of work. However the cuddy needs some attention, as does the exterior of the hull. she has some smaller nicks and dings here and there, and the gel coat has faded badly. She is also suffering from what looks like fish scales along the side(I believe this has been caused by the trailer side bunks being left against the side of the boat wet, and rubbing, and a fairly minor crack in the gel coat at the starboard corner on the transom.
The Merc 950SS Runs like a champ, and I am going to leave it well enough alone other than replacing some wiring, and rebuilding the carbs and fuel pump, as well as some other minor maint. I do however want to find new decals for the motor cowling and the control so I can replace them after having the paint redone.
Anyone with any knowledge of these boats, or thought on this project?
