TOPIC: 1972 Ouachita

1972 Ouachita 2 weeks 2 days ago #142677

Hey everyone! Thanks for adding me. I'm looking forward to being a part of this community. I wanted to introduce myself by sharing pics of my FiberGlassic. This is my 1972 Ouachita with a 50hp Johnson. Still runs like a champ when I take it out.

Welcome, good to have you here. Tell us a little more about the boat. Is that a steering stick on the port side.

Thanks! It is built for fishing and I have had many great trips with it.

Yes, that's a steering stick on the port side. Leaves plenty of floor space in front of me to stand and fish from the front seat.

My uncle bought this boat new in 1972. He took great care of it and always stored it inside when it wasn't on the water. In 2017 he handed it down to me as he was no longer able to use it. Pretty much everything you see in the picture is original which is a direct reflection of the care he gave to the boat. That bright shiny green carpet is the same carpet that was in the boat when he pulled it off the lot in 1972.

I am so thankful to him for letting me keep her on the water. My kids and I have had many great fishing trips and trips down the river.
