Need help with identification.
« on: March 05, 2017, 07:48:12 AM »
Bought this boat a few years ago (3) and no identifying marks on it and previous owner did not know make or model.  I painted it and have included pictures from when it was primed (white) to painted to show the hull more clearly. (visit this address for an album - https://goo.gl/photos/gCRzTVzKza9nLrLAA ) I'm thinking it's a vsonic 16???  Anyone help with this?  I guess I'm just looking for someone to say yup  that's it for sure, or nope, it's this...  The light on the bow brought me to mark Twain boats (the sharp thing that sticks in the air is broken off it appears).  Any info would be appreciated.

I don't thank that's a Twain.  It has some similar lines, but the hull side of the MT's I've seen all have the tell-tale indentation.  It looks close to the mid-60's 16V though.  The bow lights are a funny thing, as most manufacturers shared a lot of common parts.  Mark Twain always seemed to have distinctive bow lights, so that makes me think yours might be some variant, but the deck hardware and bilge locations seem wrong.  Tough call.
