  • Trying to nail down a year and model name.

    Hi everyone.
    Bought a Lonestar 2 months ago and finished getting it water-worthy.

    I was told it was a 58 Lonestar XL but can;t find any information on the XL model. So I think that was just to get it into my hands. transport Canada didn't care what it was listed as obviously. So thats what the license says. 1958 Lonestar XL 14' fiberglass.

    But does anyone know what year it really is? I'll post a few pics. Including the purchase picture please don;t laugh though











    I love the vintage look to the boat. boats were things of beauty back in the day. My grandfather had a 52 Peterbourough and it was very unique on our lake. It was a bit of the
    inspiration for me to find a boat from the same era. But does anyone have a year for me?

    I also found this link.... but no date. But it is the EXACT SAME boat in these pictures:

    Re: Trying to nail down a year and model name.

    Here is an update to my research for anyone who has one of these models.

    it is a 1958 (or possibly 1968 but windshield style is 50's-ish) Lonestar Monterey. A little over 14'. OBC rates it for a 40hp and 900lbs.

    So.... that about sums it up
