That looks great.  I\'m sure you\'ve seen the 67 that I posted with the green interior.  How was the gelcoat on your before the restore?  Was it crazed, spider web cracking?  That is what I\'m facing now and would love to know the process you took to re-gelcoat.

Awesome job, your 66 looks excellent!  Also good to see the engine upgrade, I\'m still running the original Evinrude Starflite 100S (which will hopefully run for a long time)!

There was some cracking in the gel coat, I had a local boat builder fix it. He ground them out and built it back up, but I have no idea about the details of how he did it.

I saw the photos of your \'66 16 ftr and really got excited.  I\'m am/was a non-boater until  Wed when I bought a \'67 MT 20 ftr-not sure of the model as yet but I am working on it.  The boat is in pretty good shape but needs alot of cleaning and touching up.  For instance the metal Mark Twain decals on the side-rear are broken.  Any idea how I could find relplacements?  I don\'t have any paperwork except the title and that provides very little info.  Do you know how I could find  an owners manual?  The engine is a 6 cyl and has the word OSCO stamped on the manifold so perhaps that is a starting point.  I appreciate you sharing pictures of your beautiful boat and perhaps sometime I can do the same.  Regards, Harv  :P

Harv, OSCO is an aftermarket manifold producer.  They are good manifolds, but they didn\'t make your engine.  You engine is probably a 6-cyl Chevy with a Merc pre-alpha outdrive.
