Hey guys I was just wondering if any of yall could identify my old hull...I was never able to figure out who it was made by or what style... I'm sorta thinking some kind of palm beach hull because of the palm beach style single rudder that was on it...I bought it from a friend who bought it from a guy out in the cypress somewhere...another thing that you cant see from the pic is that it had big black numbers on the front deck so im thinking maybe an old palm beach game warden boat and maybe they were put on for the boat to be identified from the air from like a helicopter or plane...another odd thing was that it had 2 rudder sticks at the top seat and bottom seat with 2 different throttles to operate from either seat which i thought was weird. I did a little work to it but was never able to get it on the water didnt have the time or space so i ended up getting rid of it wish i didnt though...It was a 12x7 aluminum 3/4 deck...here's a pic its not the best...

Hard to tell with the sm. picture, tried saving and enlarging, but the pixels just aren't there? If you have any photo editing software try enlarging it before you load it in to this site, cant remember the max allowed. As far as the boat, I don't think it's Grasshopper, because they were wider in the front than in the rear, looks like it has that palm-beach roll in the rear. To be honest it could be homemade, their were a lot of Harry Home Owner hulls built back in the day's, I think some of the early Frannie's had that Hump???
Buy the way it's a cool looking little boat, just what I'm fixin to build (some thing lite and sips Obama :thefinger: Fuel).

Did you scan that picture or take a pic of the pic?? :thumbup: :thumbup:

Are you gonna put that postage stamp on your photo and mail it to us?
LOL :lol:

Hard to see in that photo. Usually Rick or Scotty are happy to help a user post a photo if you're having a difficult time with it. They usually ask it to me mailed to them. Or maybe you can post it in the gallery here?

Sorry guys about the pic...I tried to re size it but the pixels turned blurry. It was taken off of my old cell phone and it didnt have the best picture taking technology ! lol it did have the roll on the bow deck and the transom had that palm beach style roll also the rear deck slanted down to the middle of the transom...I'll try working on taking a better pic and resizing it for you guys to get a better look at it...Also it's the only pic that I have... :( Ok here's kind of a better pic of it I resized it and did some editing to sharpen it up a little...
