I just purchased a 1968 Larson Runabout with a 60 HP Evinrude and a trailor for $1000. It is not the ideal Cat boat, but it is large (18 Ft.) very stable, and the price was right. The previous owner had the engine a 1981 Evinrude 60 HP, overhauled and redid the floors. Everything else, while in good working order, is a blank slate for me now. I like projects and I like the chance to be creative. In the future I plan on adding a livewell, and bait tank, a fishfinder, GPS, a radio and six side-mount and six stern-mount rodholders. I also want to add some organized storage some interior lighting, a new pumping system for the bilge and livewells and add some traction to the floor without having to add carpet. It will be a while before I try to make the boat pretty, but I am going to start improving it's fishability when I receive it this week. I am hoping that it will almost be like fishing a small pontoon boat since it has the space to get up and move around. I have some isssues with my lower back so the days of me spending an entire night sitting on a jonboat seat are probably behind me. Take a look and please share any ideas that you might have for me.
