What, getting "two-foot-itis" from your 10-footer already?  Tongue Grin

The only "Thermoglass" I've ever seen was K&C. However, there were a billion similar-sounding names of boats around that size in the 60s and 70s (I had a "Fibrecraft" for a while:
Stinky

They were all fairly decent, no frills, yer basic runabout...

Price varies wildly depending on condition. I bought Stinky for $1200, fixed her up a bit and sold her for $1800 iirc. 'Bout the same boat - ugly trailer and no kicker, but 50hp Merc, etc.

Nice little kick-around boat, actually: a bit small for Harrison Lake, probably OK for Okanogan, definitely too small for the Chuck. Too slow for skiing, but cruised fine with 3-4 aboard.

comes with a blender?j/k Grin
Not much to tell really.Back in the day they were probably the most popular boats around.There was a place in Vancouver was the big dealer for them,Ed Richardson.Been gone a long time.Seemed to be a good boat.Nothing fancy.A little teetery due to deep V hull.The original owner of K&C is still around.Was introduced to him a few years ago while prawning off Tent island.Parts should be easy to find as everything is pretty generic so ,if the hull is sound then just enjoy.The engine on the otherhand :-/
The kicker is fine.The 9.9 was introduced in 75 to replace the 9.5.(15 is the same as 9.9 except for carb,I think)One problem they had new was coils.other than that they are a powerful engine.

Hey, welcometo the world of multi-boats! Cheesy By the time Etienne's tired of Kuredu you should be in the market for one that size... Wink

I might dispose of that Westbend outboard - you might find youself using that kicker more often than you'd like! Also, I'll guess the transom has at least SOME rot in it - look into replacing it for a nice winter project...

I kinda liked Stinky - except for the blue smokescreen from the 50hp Merc... Bet you'll have lotsa fun with it!
