1960's Starcraft Sea Scamp



Well after a ton of searching through old pictures, ads, and what-not, we have identified the model of our new-old aluminum boat...........

It's a pre-1970's, most likely 1960's, but could be 1950's, Starcraft Sea Scamp model. The 12 foot Sea Scamp was designed as a budget car-topper fishing boat. Here are a few period ads for the Sea Scamps:

1967


1958

I'm finishing up a mahogany transom board to replace the original plywood that had some rot and we are getting ready to prepare the hull for new paint. We're getting closer to having it restored, licensed and on the water!
