    I'll join in... This boat has been in my family since 1980 but hasn't seen the water in something like 10 years. Garage kept since I did the upholstery some 15 years ago.... Which I then removed last year to rebuild the hull. This picture is from the day we finished the floor. I'm hoping to throw some pictures together and start a resto thread at some point.

    Received the guide on poles, they will definitely help! Took the boat out by myself yesterday and loading/unloading went very well. I purchased a marine radio and am curious if anyone has mounting ideas. This old boat has a very small dash but is fairly thick. Also curious about speaker placement.

    Well. I did it again. I just got back with this 34 year old tri hull. It's a 1978 MFG Gypsy 15. It seems to be all original. Interior, paint, all of it. It even has the tonneau cover and full convertible top. The trailer is also a 1978. It's a Holsclaw and even has the original sticker on it. Very cool. The motor is a 1976 Mercury 65 hp, according to the serial number. Anyway here are some pics. It was worth the five hour drive.

    LOL. Maybe a bit of boat. But it's a very nice boat. Very sweet. It has kind of a stranger trailer though. I'll be looking for some shocks and springs. But it was nice to drive though. No sway or anything. Very easy to tow for sure. photo8.jpgphoto4.jpg

    Does this mean that the web cam is back TC? Or do you actually get to USE this one instead of rebuilding it? That's a great looking boat. I don't even want to know how much or little you paid for it...no really, I don't.

    I occasionally think about selling my old boat during my next deployment and buying something new and fancy when I get back, but this forum and pride just keep pushing me to keep on making mine into exactly what I want instead.

    I get really excited when I see old boats on the water that are in great shape. I don't even look twice at the newer ones!

    I only need to paint it and put some marine vinyl down on the floor and it will look fantastic. This boat has come too far to stop short of perfection now.

    I'll be using this one red.It's in great great condition. Even the top is in great condition. The only thing |I'll be doing to it is using it. It's 34 years old and it's a bit warn, but for the age of it, it's near perfect. Paint, transom, interior.

    Thanks Sax. I passed up a lot of boats for this one. Newer ones, junkier ones, bowriders, deep hulls. It hurt a little but it was worth the wait. lol. I would not buy anything new. Too expensive, but nice just the same. But these older boats have more character than any new boat. Plus it would break my heart to spend 15000 or more on a new boat....pass.

    Looks nice TKrause! Is that a swimming deck on back? Love to see a close picture of the front, rear and inside. Looks like a lot of room inside and a big bimini, very nice! What is the length/width?

    Thanks bigdil, No swimming deck just a swim platform. I'm at work now but i'll drop a few more pics up tomorrow. All the vinyl inside is gone and has been replaced with indoor outdoor brown carpet. She's 17' with an 8' beam. Powered by a 79' Merc. 140. The bimini is big. Covers better than half the boat. Not sure if it's original or not. I've got another post in the Four winns forum to see if anyone has a pic. of this year with a bimini. I'm not sure if i missing 2 poles or if there were straps.

    I've had it for nearly 20 years, haven't used it in 12 years. Not sure what to do with it at this point, it needs the floor replaced and interior redone. Hate to scrap it.

    Well, here's mine. She's not pretty, she's got rot, a lot of people on this site have said I shouldn't go through with a resto, because of the cracked OMC 140 block and exhaust manifold. The more I've stewed about this, the more my stubbornness is kicking in, giving me the resolve to see this resto through. I'll take all of the help/suggestions I can get.

    This is a great looking boat. Would it be that hard to find a block?
