Gary from NH took this rescued 19′ Coast Clipper and turned it into one of the most unique Hiliner’s I have ever seen.
To This: Yes, that’s an open bow Hiliner…
Gary Rice is selling his beautifully restored and maintained Fleetstar.
He sent me the following:
For sale 1959 hiliner fleetstar 16’
The outriggers and depth finder have also been removed. Please contact Gary at email@example.com
Check out Skipper Rudy. He’s offering a variety of reproduction pennants. Including the Hiliner.
I received this email the other day. Pretty cool…. I have requested more pictures and details from Brian and will share as they become available.
I was finally able to clean out most of the storage building and came across a few boxes of new old stock parts.
If anyone needs any of these items i am happy to ship them out. Or if you are local to Newbury, MA you can come by and take a look. I also think there are some Bow handles somewhere, but they haven’t surfaced yet.
Cover Slider, $10 a set (slider and base x2)
Tail Trim. There are two sizes. $20 a set
Bow Shield. These are the smaller style. $20
Dash Hinges $5 a set, there are two styles in the box
Hatch Handles $5 each
The last weekend of August is the annual Antique & Classic Boat Show in Salem, MA. I’m curious to see if any of you New England owners would be interested in bringing your boats to this show and having our own Hiliner class.
This is the website for the show. http://www.boatfestival.org/
Take a look and let me know what you think.
Thanks to all who sent in suggestions. This was the simplest and available name.
