    I am thinking of buying a 1989 18 ft alumakraft simi v with a 50 hp yamaha. Anyone know anything about these boats?

    Pat for that year of boat as long as she is stable, and the outboard dependable, you couldn't go wrong.

    It will really come down to price.

    If you can afford it, I would choose all welded V.S. riveted.

    Many members run riveted boats, and some prefer them for the cost savings and ease of simply bucking a rivet or making small patches for repair.
