Sunday I picked up (what I think is) a 1980 Larson Manta with a mid-60's vintage Mercury 100 hp six banger. It's a 15 ft. fiberglass runabout, and it looks like it's been run about quite a bit. The gelcoat is pitted and cracked and the keel looks like it's had some fairly serious repair. The good news is it floats and runs - so the boys will finally have a fishing boat. We'll see how much of the work on it this summer is refresh versus restore, either way, it looks like we'll have some fun.
