Although I have owned a few “Tin Boats” over the past several years (Starcraft, Sears, Arkansas Traveler), I just acquired my new BFF. While perusing our local on-line “Trash to Treasure” site I came across an ad for a “Small boat, motor and trailer - $300”. A visit to the location provided a much more interesting discovery......a barn-kept, 12’, 1958 Alumacraft, model-EL, complete with its original, mint condition, 10hp, Johnson outboard. The “E” denotes the 12’ model. The “L” is for models with optional redwood seats with enclosed foam flotation. The outboard, which still had all of its original paint on the prop, started on the second pull. The non-original trailer had new tires and wheels. Final price....$250. I smiled all the way home with my new toy. :P

It does not look like they changed much. My recent one is 1975 14' Alumacraft. Sorry for the dark pic. The sun is just coming up out west.
