  • Lone Star boat company

    Hello: I have a 17' aluminum deep v boat built by the Lone Star boat co. of Grande Praire Texas. It has a 60hp. flying Scott electric start motor on it. I'm told this boat is from the 40's and was used to patrol the inside waters of the east coast during WW2 assisting in u-boat searches. I'm going to sell this outfit and was wondering if anyone can provide any information on the boat company. Thanks in advance.

        I also own a Lonestar boat, I recently found that there's a club for Lonestar owners, perhaps someone there can help with some info. The addy is http://groups.yahoo.com/group/lonestarboat/ You can also find out info on a site "FiberGlassics", it was here that I found a page from the original owners manual on my boat. Good luck, hope this helps. Roger
