Just picked it up today, Towing it home from Las Vegas! Can't wait to get it home to SoCal and get it back to its former glory

It's a very cool boat with a great history.  It has a Merlin 2 block and heads. It also has a cavitation plate with a foot pedal and handle. I've only seen that on v-drives. Me and my son are going to restore it and have it on the water next summer.

You can see the working cavitation plate. Does anyone know where I can get an original swim step?

The swim step won't work with those cav plates back there. The original swim step was a one piece deal which those are next to impossible to find. I'm always looking for them so I can buy them. I have the same boat with different hardware and mine is a 1977.

It's just jealousy lol ... I would not consider myself a "Ford guy" as my trucks and cars are all GM but in a boat ... All BBF

You’re better off calling or showing up.
