Hey Everyone, I recently acquired this (rare?) aluminum runabout made by "Aluminum Goods Limited" Model:1451,
on the plate I found a model, serial, year (1960), not more than 30 H.P, not more than 850lbs. gross load.
Has anyone ever seen one of these before? I'm going to get it all fixed up, but not sure if i should attempt to restore it, or just make it my own. It all depends on cost and interest level.
I would love to see some original pictures but cant find anything online so far.
They all look very similar. I'm starting to get the urge to just do whatever i want with the boat. I'm thinking Oak for the seat (no upholstery) with a nice sealer. and a nice piece of Oak for a new dash with all custom instrumentation. Maybe paint the hull to match my old Evinrude Ski Twin.
thanks alot, for posting your reply i had seen some of the aerocraft boats here in the gallery and noticed their similarities. But that first link is new to me and just about spot on, I doubt I will find any original model pictures (meaning with its original interior), or even know it if i see them.
I will keep checking back to see if anybody else can shed more light on this topic.
