          Can anyone give me a guess as to how much this boat would weight along with a 100hp o/b?

              Thanks to all for help, hate to beat a dead horse, but can anyone tell me if the Tornado is closed or open bow on original, mine is closed and modified for a bass boat style pole seat in the middle and i don't think that is per original. Going for restoration here. Thanks

                I have a 79 Charger that is serving as my fishing boat right now. Great little runabout.
