Just obtained a 1963 Thompson Bros. Boat Mfg. Co. 20'-4" Off-Shore Deluxe stern drive wooden lapstrake boat. She's a big rig. Need a ladder to get in and out of the boat! She has a Chrysler inboard engine with Eaton Marine Powernaut outdrive. Outdrive was made by Eaton Manufacturing Company at Saginaw, Michigan.
The rig has been sitting outside for 8 years or so. Lots of rot in the boat. Who knows if the engine will turn over or if the outdrive is any good.
This is a "one day" project. No, it will take more than one day to finish, but it is one that I will tackle "one day" in the future!
Oh, there is a hole in the hull compliments of what I beleive to be the fork of a fork lift!
