Nice looking boat, total retro 70's design. What engine you running?

Throw some through hulls on there and really get some attention at the dock :) I like that interior. Tons of room very clean boat! You live in MT or just got the boat from there?

I live in Montana and I bought the boat here. I think some one did a restoration on it at some point in the past. Its not the original color and the graphics are not a 70's thing. I really like this boat, it is strong enough to pull a tube/skier and still has the convenience of a cabin cruiser. still working on the issue of a potty(for the wife and kids). I thought about thru hulls but, I want to be able to use it for fishing at night too. the sound of open exhuast is a sweet sound to my ears but, the fish and the fishermen dont like it. This is my second boat to bring back to life. I did a 1972 22ft. larson ski boat with a 289 ford I/O about 18 years ago. That was a lot more work than this one.

Does any one else have a fiber form boat like this??? I have been searching and not found anything on this model. I only recently found one similar on craigslist in washington. First one I've seen other than mine.

Frog,
yep distributor is in the back. I think the Volvo 225 is a 350 Chevy. Could be a 305 I dont remember.

Thanks, MarkS. The motor is Chevy 305. The motor is pretty common, except for the exhaust which is the Chris craft style log set up. I had to do a lot of research to prove to Volvo that they ever used this set up. Found it in their own archives. its the boat that I have not seen many of. Not sure if its considered a cabin cruiser or what. It does have the complete kitchin/ dinning area.

Well, after all this time i finally figured out its a 19ft bimini. I guess you could buy it with no roof, single roof, and dual roof. It took alot of searching on the internet.
