    My dad had the same boat when I was a pre-teen. This was the 1st boat I learned to water ski behind on the Maumee River in OH. We'd also take it out on Lake Erie for perch and Walleye fishing in the late 70's early 80's. It was never in this good of condition tho. I loved it anyway.

    It's a fully restored 19' Dorsett. Dad's had a 40hp Johnson on the back. It also leaked like a sieve. After about 2-3 hours of fishing, we'd have fire up the motor, pull the plug, and go, to get the water out.:confused: No GPS in those days either. There were times we'd miss the launch and ride up and down the south shore of Erie trying to find it.

    The height in the cabin had to be only about 4'. Enough to sit in it and put your gear in there. When my dad let me bring my friend fishing, we'd sit on the bow on top of the cabin. Seeing this brought back some cool memories so I thought I'd share.

    sorry I didn't get the aft.
