Thanks for checking out this ole War Horse of a boat. It is a 1958 Bailey Bridge Half Pontoon Boat, you can Google and YouTube "Ugli Boat" and you can see for yourself the history of these old Military Vessels. I also have a video on YouTube and just put in the search box "Ugli Boat" and it should pop up. Below is the first time we launched the boat, it preform perfectly. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_EtYtVIh4o4"In the video you can see the boat bouncing and I have recent fixed this problem. I installed a transom wedge and it cleared up this problem." Its 100% all aluminum construction minus the floor decking and the trailer is all aluminum I-Beam. This boat is a tank, built to last, its already nearly 60 years old and is still solid as a rock. You really need to see the boat to appreciate the construction. If you know anything about military equipment you will know it will take a beating and will still come out on top. It measures 18.5' long and just shy of 7' wide. I purchased the boat last November and have been putting it together since. When I got the boat all it did was float, no motor, no trailer, no nothing. I have added Hydraulic Steering, Engine controls and all New Cables. New 19 gallon Fuel tank, Trim Tabs, carpet, decking for the floor, wiring, and everything else that makes it move in the water. The trailer is a Float-On and its solid with "NEW" torsion axles and "NEW" tires. Comes with a 1990 Johnson 120hp that's runs like a scalded ape. If you want to make a run up the river of out in the bay let me know ahead of time, I will set something up for you. Look it up and come check it out if you like. I'm pretty firm on the $5,000 price.
