I'm now the proud owner of this 1958 feather craft it needs alot of work but I love finned boats and I had to have it because it's aluminum too! Don't care much for fiberglass work so I love it that's it's aluminum. My plans are to take off what's left of the anodizing and polish the whole top and re spray the gold. I have a 1957 or 58 I believe Johnson 35 hp outboard that i got as a bonus from my weekend boss when he moved and a mercury 60 hp that came with the boat. The Johnson fits it way better I think. I traded my old mig welder to a buddy for the boat,trailer,outboard and new seats. hope to start on it in the spring the seats it came with are a nice set of new bucket? Seats with tuck and roll style upholstery. Was told it was once sunk and recovered years later and used as a crabbing boat that's why the transoms cut for a stuck drive. I'm going to have to repair all that and beef the transom up some but it's such a cool boat I think. Now I just got to get it home and hid behind the garage before my wife sees it... pretty much needs everything and will probally be worth less than the money I spend on it but I'm still excited.
