  • Project Fuggly - No Longer Fuggly And Splashed!!!!!!

    So I have another project.....I got the idea....or inspiration, while surfing around on youtube. I came across this episode of Stacey David's show......

      I thought, "that thing is so ugly, its kind of cool". I have been looking for a quick fixer upper to have on the water next summer. Miss Morgan is awsome, but not so much if there are more than 2 of you. So I was on craigslist and came across this, 1971 powercat. I thought "That is so ugly its kind of cool". I almost clicked on the back button, but then I saw the hull configuration......a catamaran set-up..sort of.....so I went to look at it, pretty amazing shape for the age. The guys who had it, got it when they bought a 69 caddy convertible from an estate sale. After some haggling, I hauled it home.

        I thought this might be a fun hull to check out, I have no idea how she will ride, but it looks like a cool setup. Click image for larger version

            I was looking at her from the side the other day and thought "she looks kind of like a DUKW amphibious truck....hmmm,...maybe I could splice her together with the jeep.......naaa one project at a time! So over the next few weeks I will be poking around on this and getting ready for surgery...........'grinder.....vice grips.....sawzal...." I think the patient will make it, lol!

              Powercats have a HUGE following, so if you fix it to flip it, there is a market.....

              BTW the pix of it didn't post..

                    JB, I think I got the pic fixed, still don't have the hang of things around here since the update. I did notice they are popular, they have some pretty cool hulls.....I think this is the Ford Econoline van version, lol!

                    Zool......um.....Omegamoos????? I'll scuttle her first! You will be amazed at the hot chicks this thing will pick up! (hey that guy with the ugly boat gives away free drinks........) One has to have the right bait!

                    As for inside........its all there, orginal gauges, controls etc. Seats, well they would make a termite cry, not much but mulch and vinyl. As for the deck, I ask the car guys who had it about that. "its got a soft spot, but you can just patch that right? BBBBBLLLLLLAAAAAAAAHHHAAAHHHAAAA". So we have a "replace the deck project. My guess is the transom too, but who knows. First step is to see if I can breathe life into the 4 banger....if not maybe something with a little more hp....

                            That is one of the most attractive classic boats I've ever seen! It has that west coast, aluminum jet boat look. I'd put a late model, high horsepower 4 stroke on it. I know exactly how I'd build that. Nice find!
