1974 was the year that brought us those ungodly bumpers and smog crap that ruined car ownership for at least two decades. And looks like it did some damage to the boating world as well. But time has a way of romancing ugly into cool. And the uglier, the cooler the stuff becomes. And today my fellow Woody Boaters, we feature exhibit A in that case.
Its that bad yet so good 1970’s yellow, which is a notch better than Avocado, and according to the seller. ” It Miranders” HA, what a wonderful way of saying Slug. But everything in that year was like a swim in ice cold water.
Yeah! But! And here is the Big But! This thing is cool as hell, and you know Dollars to Doughnuts that if you showed up to Lake Dora with this, you would own the show. Its the ultimate party fun boat, AND looks cool. You could get some too tight shorts and a sleeveless T, maybe grow a mustache and be a king! I LOVE IT, LOVE IT, LOVE IT.
Now, lets talk about what will be the Elephant in the room. $4,990… I know, I know, too some of you these classic plastic things should all be give aways. A simple google search and we find several in the $300 -$2500 range. But this one is sweet…looks in great shape.
And we here in the classic boat world have a tendency to want to buy stuff for nothing and then are shocked that people may just want to make some of the money back. So the price is realistic for a cool boat. But thats all in the eye of the beholder. It will be interesting to see if this little Sweet Meandering Thing sells. We certainly hope so, and you bring it to a show. And win a Sweet award.
