Finn S. from upstate NY sent in these pictures along with the following:
1970 Hiliner Fleetstar 16 ft
Original 1970 60 hp Evinrude outboard motor.
1970 original Tee Née trailer with new wiring, lights, tires and wheels.
Bottom has been completely fiberglassed and and painted.
Topside newly varnished.
All original interior with cushions.
Original canvas helm cover over front seat, that folds into the dashboard.
All electric works, speedometer, bow light and anchor light.
New steering cable and bilge pump.
New full-length custom fit canvas cover for travel, dock and storage. Sorry, no photos in the water yet.
This boat looks great. I’m going to check with Finn on the MFG date of his boat. To my knowledge, Hiliner Boat Co. was out of business by 1963. A number of hulls were finished off by Bunny Fernald after this date. The latest date that I had previously seen was 1965.
