Left me start off by saying I know nothing about boats! I bought a house at a sheriff sale. In the barn there is a boat, the tag says MFG Carousel. I can't find any info on the boat or pics other than a brochure from 1966. Was this boat only made 1 year. The neighbor told me that the previous owner had it out on the river in 2015. I tried to attach a pic of the data plate but it wouldn't let me. Any info would be great. Thanks

Those are the only 2 things I have found on the boat. Was it only made 1 year. If the boat runs what is it worth

A little more then the motor running and a towable trailer is worth.

Not a lot of 'value' in most 50s-80s boats, even in perfect condition.....

Even if theres little info available about a model online, they arent usually rare, collectible and valuable, w few (very very few) exceptions.....

Trying to figure out how to PM somebody thru this forum? I see no link for private messaging? That was my first consideration, but see no where to message? Hmm? Help!

Does messaging also fall under the (4) post rule before you can message like it is for pics? Help? I think this post is now only my 4th post after registering over 6-years ago - LOL! :)

Who do you intend to message? You're not supposed to send PMs w out prior open forum contact, otherwise it falls under the no solicitation rule. Atbay hasnt been on iboats in over a month, so you've not had contact w them.

This is atbays topic, not a running discussion for you to ask questions about using the forum.

PM me or start a Help? Topic in the Boat topics sub-forum
