1950s 14 foot Aerocraft Aluminum Boat - $300 (Marion, MA )
I have owned this boat, which was initially purchased by my father, for many years. It is a 14 foot Aerocraft with a 5 foot beam and very roomy and seaworthy, has open storage under front deck. I used to take this fluke fishing but most of its time was spent in fresh water. I reinforced the gunnels with strips of mahogany which upped the initial 120 pound weight a couple of pounds. My Dad and I used to cartop this without any problems. He used a 71/2 HP motor on it which would plane this boat with three people in it. I used a 25 HP which really moved it along. Boat is in Marion, MA, I am in Narragansett, RI.
