And it may just be a trailer to get it from the lake house to the lake...

We maybe looking at this all wrong, the ad only mentions the boat and motor, nothing about the trailer. My guess is that the trailer is not part of the deal...

Yeah, you'd think part of that restoration would be finding a trailer long enough for the boat. :)

The boat looks great.
Look at the front of the trailer too. Just a strap to hold it on. Hit the brakes and it would fly over you.

Nice looking boat and a nice job on the restoration. The only issue I see is that the trailer looks to be a little undersized... Too much of the boat hanging off the back end of the trailer for my liking.

Looks like I missed it. It did look very complete and I could have used some of the parts to know how to do a similar boat I have (61' Coronado ) .
I just sent one of my boats off to its new owner yesterday, Ill need to resist the urge to get something I really don't need.

Yeah, and it's the first one I've seen that has all of the front and back seat braces intact. I'd be interested too if it were closer. ...as if I need another project. :)

Don't let that stop you. You only need a bill of sale to get the boat across the border.
