Hello Duratech forum! I just picked up another Duratech boat to restore, I'm fairly sure it's a 1962 model. I think the hull can be brought back with a bunch of elbow grease but we'll see after I get it stripped of the mess. It spent most of its life on the Maine coast until it was brought up to central Maine near where I live, in fact, it was only about 3 miles away.

This boat was advertised as 17'9'' long, with an 85" beam, and 850 pounds without motor. Lots to think about so I'm glad I have the winter to plan. I want to record the project but I'd also like to see the Duratech forum hang in there. Thanks for looking!
