  • show your aristocraft pics

    this idea was suggested by another aristocraft owner. seems like a good idea to me so i'm gonna start it...
    so, post up pics of your aristocraft. don't matter the condition. they are all cool.. if ya got a brief description of what were looking at, that'd be cool too.



    at my local watering hole. kinda a funny shot. i know i must be onboard somewhere, but i sure don't see me...





    a missouri river run...



    night boating at the local watering hole again, my sweety must have been getting ready for bed. she's got her super sleeper lounge/bed out....

      great looking funliner pmiesbauer. looks like ya got a real sweety there...
      love that blue... aristocraft sure did pick really nice (to me) shades of blue the their vessels. yours is no different. beautiful.

      sure wish i had a front nav light that took a flag.. looks great.... i like the funliners that have the rear nav. light on the top too, like yours. does your top slide? i don't know since i've got the nineteen. i like the style of that nav light anyways..

      ya sure got some great pics of your boat man. i see the funliner really banks into the turns. that is similar to my nineteen. unless i'm going pretty fast. then she don't bank quite as much.

      anyways. great looking boat man. if i ever get a different boat. so far. a funliner is at the top of my list...

      welcome to the forum too man. it's a great place to hang out at... if ya like boats...

        Thanks for the welcome. I've actually been a long term lurker. Thanks also for the kind words about "For Pete's Sake". She been my introduction to the boating world and has been loads of fun.

        I must admit, I've been an admirer of your boat. Love the color; noone has the guts to use such outrageous colors anymore! The nineteens have some great features. I've been thinking about getting one for some time, but can't convince the wife. It would be nice to have a little bit bigger boat!.

        To answer your question about the top, it does slide back, but just a couple of inches. Nothing like the Nineteens. Actually, I don't even do that anymore; its much more structurally solid with it attached to the windshield. If I need some air movement, I open the hatch in the deck.

          These are all I have for this year. I'll try to get a few more when I pull the covers off in the spring.

            I apologize for my ignorance, but photos of my 1974 Model Nineteen are about 1 MB each and I cannot figure out how to post them. Please offer your suggestions. Thanks, mm

              Hi,

              Here is a pic of my 1965 funliner 17 with a mercruiser 110.
              This is the only pic I have of the boat at Home in Ireland.
              The boat is outside at the moment as I need to clear some space to do the work on her.

              Thanks Mark for you PM as soon as I start on the boat I will get the pics up on Iboats.

                i like the photobucket thing. it works pretty well...

                hope ya get'er figured out. think i've seen your boat before, maybe over on fiberglassics. real nice looking boat, sure hope to see more of her. i had a pic of mine there too, but since it didn't have fins. i felt rejected over there so i removed it.

                  Here are some pics of my '63 funliner. I'm thinking about selling her. It is a solid boat with good dash, gauges, and windshield. It just needs a motor. It sits on a Wesco trailer with new tires and wheels. Needs a new wind up winch.

                    Check this "trophy" hehehe

                    My brothers friend had it sitting in the woods kinda covered and almost half full of mmm muck. Was hostage to a bitter divorce :-( Anyway, I picked it up after being removed from the mossy depths. Oh it was forgotten about for almost 7yrs so the story goes, shortly after a redo (not a restoration). But I came along and have a heart for the lame and abused.

                    It is a 1963 Funliner 17 it has had a1960 Gale Soveriegn 60 for many years. After about 20 hours on the boat and motor I determined that SHE'S gonna be fun. And boy was I right! So far, with a "gotta gitter runnin" tune up I got 24mph (by pitot speedo). This old motor aint great on fuel but we sure have fun!

                    We had it out in the upper chesapeake last fall twice before parking it. But in those two trips to the sand bar and beach we get a ton of questions. I could go on but here are my pics so far. As you can see I need a windshield and some real restoration but the important part is it floats and it's paid for.

                    Soon as I can shovel a path to it i'll start to prep it for our first full season.

                        Hey there,
                        Coming in a little late...but here are a few "before" pics. 1975 nineteen. Cleaned her up and shopping for a new engine. Fingers crossed to have her out on the water this summer! (It's probably been 20 years since the last time this boat was on water)

                          Mark,
                          Photo bucket is by far the easiest for me to use. you simply set up an acount, load your photos there. Now when you put your mouse over one of you images at photobucket a drop down menu shows up and the one at the bottom says IMG. simply copy and paste that URL into a reply you post on here and the photo magically shows up

                              Hey Ziggy! Thanks The clean up was great, the seat skins were all in really good shape, just replaced the backing board on 2 of them. got some new sliders from aristocraft and got the top moving, thank goodness there are still parts available!
                              As for the engine, we were debating getting new vs. remanufactured, but the cost is a bit too high. I think we're going to end up getting a new engine block and building it up from there. I don't think we'll be able to find a new 120, so we'll have to get a 140 and see what we need to modify. Just started shopping around in NJ. A few of the places have guys just out to sell you a new boat. They don't seem to appreciate the value of a classic like the nineteen, haha!
                              Good luck with getting ready for summer.
