I have always been in love with these boats as long as I remember. After finally buying a '68 CC Skylark in '95 and using it every summer until '06, I spotted this boat for sale online through Boat Trader and I just had to buy it. I purchased it sight-unseen for $4000 and arranged to pick it up the following summer on my way up to NH. Luckily I got the Skylark sold quickly. I headed up to NW PA to trailer it over to NH in July '07. After 4 summers the boat is just fantastic! It ran like new this past summer of '10. The boat is powered by a 210hp Holman-Moody V8. Not sure if it's original. The blue paint is not original. It was a green color and the topsides have been painted a brighter white. The interior has also been redone with blue seats/carpet and side panels. Over this winter the blue seats are going as well as the carpet. They will be redone in a white oyster color and I'm changing out the carpet for neutral vinyl decking. The swim platform is also a great addition.
