Can you help me ID this 1432 flat bottom?

Post by catman529 »

Mystery to me. I will give the specs I know and some pics. From pics I have seen online, Sears comes closest, but nothing exact.

Size - 14x32
Year - 1971
-Carry handles held in by only 2 rivets, 1 on each side. Only one was left when I bought the boat, and it was loose so I tore it out.
-No braces in the corners
-4 runners on the bottom

The guy I bought it from did not know the make either. He had put "Jon" as the make when he registered it, so I guess I will do the same.

There were remnants of old decals near the front of the boat, none readable, and I sanded them off.

There was no hull number on the boat.

I removed the rotten transom wood that was in there when I bought it, and replaced with new bolts and a piece of water sealed white oak.

There appeared to be the faded word "MARK" on one side of the hull near the stern. Came off when I stripped the paint. Looked like it may have been stencil painted on or something.

Now here are some pics.
