TOPIC: New Toy - 1970 Evinrude Sportsman 155

New Toy - 1970 Evinrude Sportsman 155 2 years 7 months ago #115567

Look what followed me home....can I keep it? PLEEEEESE!! This poor thing was just sitting all by itself in a parking lot and REALLY needed a good home.
We're the third owners of an exceptionally well taken care of 45 year old classic. There are a few small cosmetic details that need to be addressed, but considering it's age we were really surprised to find a boat like this in such well cared for condition.

The engine compartment and engine itself are immaculate....and yes it does run...YEEHA! We're in the process of going over every inch, changing fluids and double checking everything.

Can't wait to get it on the water, but first things first...safety and reliability. But this is certainly going to be fun!! :cheer:

Good for you! I have a 70 Explorer 155 in very original condition. These boats are so tough and can take rough water better than their passengers. My parents bought an Explorer brand new in 1969 and I practically grew up on it through college. Have fun and more pictures please.
