Looks quite smart, think she is an early one, say 90/91 time. If you want to change the colour I have the nose cone moulding at home.

Good guess, Pete, you're very close, but before you recoil in amazement at my ability to date a boat just by looking at a picture of it, here's a little clue..........

Also they changed the tubes from about 92 to horrizontal seems rather than lobster type with seems going around the tube, hence the guess at 90/91.

Is this a quiz? Normally. I'd like to know what the prize is before I enter.

Anyway, it's a trick question. Mike says he never changed nuffink. Before his time he says.

Thanks for the offer, but i'm sticking with the orange. Deck needs painting, as does the console (or replacing)

A cheap way of getting extra seating is to cut the top rail of the bottle rack.

Size a piece of marine ply to fit snugly into the frame and take it to an upholsterers to be covered. Seats are a lot cheaper if you take your own precut ply.

This Eagle was a 92 as well. Mercury 75hp gave it 35knots.

Thanks DM very interesting.

Do you think I could fit two single jockey's in the back (with the rack removed)?
