    I picked this 21 foot Starcraft up this weekend. The inside was really tore up so It made the boat cheap. I didnt want nothing nice for what we do. The 85 horse Merc runs real good. I plan to build some rod holders and install a live well and bait tank. This thing is a big step up from my 1961 16 footer. Boat001.jpg

    Looks good Ryan. With a little work you will have and nice cat boat there.

    21 footer will give you plenty of room to fight the BIG ones.

    Nice to see someone from Newton. The company i work for has a mill there in your home town.I been there many of times.

    Good fishing in 08

    Ryan thems some great ol boats been around since dirt, my grandfather (my gandfather was born an Amish man) and father grew up in Goshen ind. and worked for star tank that evolved into star tank and boats and then in to starcraft, my granddad worked there from the mid 30's until he retired in 68 and it was my dads 1st job back in the mid to late 40's its were my dad learned how to weld and work with metal, back in the 40's they made livestock tanks mostly.

    looks like a good project to me. I hope you have some deep water to put that thing in.
