Brent - from my experience with vintage boats,
whether they be aluminum, wood or fiberglass,
they mostly come "bare bones" from the manufacturer.
The dealership (like automobiles) will then dress them
up the with additional goodies to make them fetch a higher price (supposedly).
So a Lone Star that went to the East Coast probably could
have different style items like the trailer, horn, light, mirror, compass, etc
than one that went to the Mid West or West Coast.........
here in Florida, we pull a lot of water skiers with pleasure boats.... therefore,
I have a period correct rearview mirror to mount on the dash also.
so after it is all said and done, it will be a pretty smart looking
"period correct" boat - hopefully.
companies like Chris-Craft and Gar Wood had very specific options for their brand.
others would get whatever the local boat suppliers had in stock.
I have a 1958 Johnson Super Sea Horse 35hp motor to put on it and
it will sit on a 1959 Gator trailer (which most of them had on the East Coast)
and a 1959 Florida trailer tag for the static display shows.
I don't know about other states, but, the Florida Snow Birds really like
their "tag toppers" on the front of their Cadillacs LOL (so I got one too).
Hopefully, you can find all the period correct "bling" that will make your rig POP !!

you are doing great !!

It's been a while, but over the old wet winter we've had here in the Pacific Northwest I've managed to just about get everything finished up on the boat.

I got my wiring finished up and installed a new battery. The new LED bulbs in the navigation lights look goo and the horn I jury rigged with parts from a Harbor Freight special works like a charm.

I refurbished the control box with a fresh coat of pain and a new Evinrude decal to match the outboard, which I got mounted on the boat a couple days ago.

Image

Image

I applied a few decals (the script Lone Star and the registration numbers), added a few required safety items (fire extinguisher, PFDs, bail bucket, etc.), installed my self-bailing bilge plug, put on a Bimini top, and I think we're ready to hit the water...if the weather would ever cooperate.

I also scored a Tempo Motor Flusher on eBay, so I should be able to run my motor in the driveway without the barrel of water (when it arrives).

Image

I think someone is getting impatient.

Thanks Johnny; it look longer than I was hoping, but I can't wait to get it out on the water. How is your Malibu coming along?

Thanks, that's the original graphics, but I substituted the teal (they did offer it in a smilar color) for the original red.
