Aero Craft 12' Mod.

Great find! Any idea what year? Looks like a 1950's vintage because of the smooth sides. If you want to know more about Aerocraft check this out https://www.ultimate.com/aerocraft-boats/ It is full of info. Good luck and make sure you share with us.

Q-14 (semi V) AeroCraft Project

Now that the boat is near complete I am going to fix up the trailer. Currently it is set up for a 12' boat that I sold last month. It has a bunch of rollers that don't come into play on the 14' boat it will carry. I plan to tear into it by removing the side rollers and adding carpeted bunks that wil...

You have a very good foundation there. As far as the motor goes I highly recommend "Sea Foam". Follow the directions on the can. It worked great on a 1963 Johnson that had sat for nearly 25 years. Good luck!

Q-14 (semi V) AeroCraft Project

Had a busy work week so not much got done until Sat. Completed the wireing minus the bow light and the rope light but ran all the wires and switched the stuff I wanted. Finished the inside of the storage compartments and snapped some pictures.

Not sure if you are aware but pressure treated lumber is not compatible with aluminum. Something in the chemicals that are used in the treatment will pit and attack the exposed aluminum. I only found this out as I navigated this site. I believe the census is to use exterior grade plywood and treat i...
