Please contact the owner directly @ 208-342-4207 o jsebolt@mac.com... 1958 SeaBolt This vintage one of a kind 14 foot runabout with a 64 inch beam was handcrafted in Pennsylvania in 1958 by a Master craftsman out of Straight Grain fir, Mahogany, Oak and Mahogany Marine plywood. Originally designed and built as the prototype for the start of a boat company, this boat was used on the Rivers and lakes around Western Pennsylvania and the Lakes of Upstate NewYork from 1958 through 1966. Rock solid construction with all Solid Oak Ribs and Battens and Solid Oak reinforced Chines. The Gunwales and deck Materials are solid Mahogany. Deck inlays are Solid straight grain fir. Mahogany Marine Grade 3/8" plywwod on the bottom of the hull and Mahogany Marine grade 1/4" Plywood for the sides of the hull. Entire Hull covered in Fiberglass. On the Solid Mahogany dash you have a steering wheel by Perko, a pull switch for the running lights to the right of the steering wheel and a pushbutton for the Airhorn at the center. The airhorn still has the original air cannister connected to it and it still works! There are snaps across the top of the windscreen to attach the leading edge of the included bimini top. The 1950's era Mercury Kiekhaefer Mark 55 Thunderbolt Four 40 HP Pull Start engine with steering and throttle connections is connected to the Quicksilver Throttle/Transmission control unit by Kiekhaefer with kill switch located at the drivers seat. It's fed by 2 Mercury portable/removable 6 gallon gas tanks under the decking at the stern accessible through the removable hatch on the rear decking directly in front of the engine. All of this sits atop a single axle bunk trailer from PolarKraft with a spare tire/wheel This boat is in fantastic shape and would require minimal work to complete. The hull is water tight and in great shape. Here are the things I would do... The straight grain fir decking could stand to have the caulking between the wood redone. (When the boat was relocated to Boise from Pennsylvania, the difference in humidity caused the caulking to shrink and pull away from the boards a bit exposing some gaps between the caulking and the wood. Minor repair) Fuel system Make sure tanks are clean, They have been in storage for many years. They were drained and cleaned before they were put in storage. Electrical system/Lights...replace the battery and ensure all bulbs are working. Motor... A new impeller was installed about 10 years ago and the engine had great pull on the starter cord and compression. Should be good to go but check it over. Maintained by a trained aircraft mechanic. Windscreen... It's plexiglass. Polish it up and reinstall. Need a couple of nuts to fasten it to the deck. Water test the completed rig to ensure all is good, register and enjoy on a beautiful lake. This boat used to pull waterskiers and still will. My plans for it included the light restoration described above and then enjoy it in McCall Idaho while cruising around on Payette lake looking at the lake homes. I can provide additional photos via email of specific details as required. Just let me know what you want to see. Questions welcome!
