1962 Elgin 14ft First Time Build

Post by Chaser0721 »

I've had ideas and have been wanting to buy a boat to mod for five years now at least, but couldn't make it happen with the new kid that was on the way.
This is my very first boat, and I'm finally making it happen, so I went out and bought this 1962 Elgin (Sears?) 14ft riveted aluminum boat with a 5.5 hp Evinrude fisherman motor. Motor runs great, it's such a trip how these old motors are still kickin. Also picked up a 43lb thrust motorguide trolling motor w/ foot pedal, some fish finders and other random accessories. The guy threw in a MinnKota deckhand anchor winch for free.
I plan on putting in a front casting deck with seat mount, and a small back deck with a chair for my wife to fish off the back, with a low floor in the middle.
