I recently received (free to me from a family friend) an old Sears Gamefisher Al Jon Boat, with oars, electric trolling motor and an old Ted Williams model gas outboard. So, I guess the money pit has started with my first boat! I suppose the next happiest day is supposed to be when I sell it!
I submitted my registration request to the Colorado State Parks department, but received a letter back requesting the hull ID and the year of manufacture.
I believe I found the hull ID riveted onto the stern.
As for the year it was manufactured, there is no clear indication. I was thinking in the first photo below that the first two digits of the model may be the year of manufacture?
Here are photos of the only other literature on the boat:
The only other thought I have is to see if the Parks Dept. can look up the manufacture date via the previous registration decal:
I know El Paso County has one of these boats, so if you are out there EPC and know the answers - I am all ears!
One last question, are there any good rod holder mounts for Jon boats?
Thanks for the help.
