The PO has mentioned that whan he registered it it came up as a 1960 Starcraft, but as I look at others of that area I don't believe it is. If it is a Starcraft maybe it is older than 1960. No one has been able to find any HIN numbers or nameplates on it in obvious places (don't they stamp in multiple locations?).

Boy do I hate it when I publicly say I am 80% right, and I am not. I have identified my boat to 90% this time.

This is how I did it for those interested (may help someone else). I took my measurements of my boat Length, Gunwale (some mfg measured their boat this way), Beam and Transom. I went through every link on FiberGlassics website (http://www.fiberglassics.com/library/Main_Page). The Aerocraft adventurer was the only boat that matched mine. The Adventurer was made only (from what I can tell) 3 years (1960-1962).

Here are some pics of it;

A little update. Still working on the tar when I can break free, but I switched speeds and pulled the transom yesterday. I think some one had to of replaced it before, because it was in amazing condition if it was 50 years old. There were a few soft spots, and it was not sealed. So I am going to go ahead and do it right (and seal up all the holes).
