  • Help to identify old Starcraft.

    I just acquired an old Starcraft and need help in identifying information about it. It is a 14' closed bow, fiberglass runabout. Serial #INZ021287053.
    My plan was to strip it, paint it and use it as landscape decoration at a lake house. I have a feeling that this boat may be rare and would like to know more about it. I have attached a few pictures
    Thanks in advance for any help.

      Welcome to the Starcraft club

      Telling us you will be using that beautiful rig as a landscaping enhancement isn't exactly what we like to hear but nice boat

      There's a link in my signature to the Starcraft brochures, take a look and you might be able to get a positive ID on the year/model.

        I have looked and looked for years for the right small runabout for that purpose. Now that I have found what I thought was the perfect one, maybe I need to reconsider it's future.
        Thanks for the input.

          Looks like all it needs is motor and she's ready for a ride! Cool boat, don't make it flower pot. That boat belongs back on the water. You 'll be the better man for it.

            I have decided to do a partial restoration on this boat and get it water ready.
            I would like to know more about this boat. Can anyone help?

              I really can't help you too much but I am willing to trade you straight up for one of these...

              On a serious note, fix her up! She deserves to be seaworthy again!

              Cheers!

                JASOUTSIDE...I HAVE decided to partially restore the boat. As a brand new member of this forum I have quickly discovered that there are smart *****e$ here also.
                No, I don't want to trade you my Starcraft for your flower pot!!!...but I'm sure that some of your dumb***** buddies got a chuckle out of your response.
                I simply asked for any information about this old 14' fiberglass runabout.

                    I was just messing around with ya larryhood, sarcastic comment is all. I believe I even wrote "on a serious note" to make sure that you knew I was just kidding with you. I actually saw that you had posted plans to do some sort of restoration so I thought I'd have some fun. That is what I love about this whole boating/fishing stuff, it's all about the simple matter of having good clean fun.

                    Please accept my apologies and all the best on your project.

                      Larry, take a pill. We're really not looking for lots of attitude here. And most of his dumba....ed buddies would be the ones trying to help you figure out what you have.

                              Be patient sometimes these things take a little time. There are a couple of guys here that know more than most about Starcrafts.

                              Let's start with the obvious and the easiest first.
                              a) Check your title
                              b) look here http://forums.iboats.com/showthread.php?t=349830
                              c) Call Starcraft; Starcraft Direct: 1-574-831-2103
                              d) www.FiberGlassics.com

                              I would put it circa 1958-1962 based on how it looks. Very similar to a Larson of that era. I'm just guessing though. Very cool boat.
