  • 1967 14' Starcraft Alum Boat Help

    Hello Starcraft owners
    I have a '67 14' aluminum starcraft fishing boat but I do not know what model it is since it does not have a VIN tag.

    Here's what I know:

    3 full bench seat
    each seat has in-cased styrafoam block for floatation
    boat is designed for OB motor
    three transom braces
    63 1/2" beam
    Sorry I do not have pics of it.
    I would like to know the specs of this boat AND how large of a motor can I safely use. The new 4 stroke motors are heavier then the old 2 strokes, so what size or weight can this boat SAFELY use?

    I emailed starcraft and they would not even write back to me.

    Your help is needed...THANKS

      Jim I am not sure myself but will see if I can wrangle up Bob-VT as I am pretty sure he has the same basic boat as you . I do know the Jonboat styled Starcrafts were not rated for very big motors probably 25 horse in your case.

        Jim heres a page from the 62 brochure on the seascamp which would be the same size and number of seats as your boat and it says max horsepower is 1-15.

          Rick....thanks

          the sea scamp is very close to what I have. The beam width on mine is a little wider and the transon on the sea scamp appears to be flat accross the top where as mine tappers down on both sides and is flat in the middle for the motor. It's still a mystery LOL

          This boat came from the Salton Sea

            Jim I will see what I can do on a 67 Brochure . maybe I can get closer . That was a quicky last night and got me in the range of your boat . Feel free to pop down to the restoration area theres a pile of us starcrafters down there pulling our hair out .

              looking over a few starcraft sites, my boat might be 14V Jon boat. However with that said, NONE of the pics I looked over showed enough to truly verify what model it is. I'm trying to have pics taken of it and then post them. May be that will help out.

                Jim, if it really is a 67, it's gotta be one of these. most likely the Seafarer, but I thought I'd throw in the Mariner since it also is 14' with a 65" beam. Hope this helps!

                      LOL I use the Yahoo site quite a bit but they are missing quite a few years . Whenever you get bored ( like thats gonna happen soon ) ya need to get the rest of those brochures up over at the other Strcraft site where you put the 64 brochure . Oh yeah and update your pics over there your bot looks terrible over there .

                        that does look like my boat----where it says seafarer, to the right of it----it shows a pic of what the back boat bottom configeration is, that looks just like mine as well. so this model was designed for salt water use? may be that's why it was purchased for the Salton Sea....a very salty sea. Still trying to post pics


                        THANK YOU FOR YOUR HELP!

                        any more pics of the inside would really be great!

                          Jim check the first three threads here for picture posting



                          http://forums.iboats.com/forumdisplay.php?f=32


                          I will tell you if you want to put your pictures in with your text and not thumbnails then Photobucket seems to be the easiest and prefered hosting site to put your pictures on and its FREE .



                          Also be sure to start a restoration thread down in the restoration area on the main page of the site . Theres alot of us hanging down there all the time .


                          Also also make sure you take a look at the 2010 get together thread here in the Starcraft section as we are planning things now for a Starcraft get together next summer tentatively in Virginia and towards the end of June right now.

                            thanks sooooo much for the help guys! I uploaded pics at photobucket so you can now see the boat. It does look like a Seafarer model boat. What do you all think? I installed new wood bench seats, then after-market seats. I then installed a new flat floor in the boat--lots of work to do. Installed 4 Scottys rod holders plus a pole holder at the rear of the boat. Up front I put a gear rod holder. Even made up my own extra large cup holders.
