Really good restoration of this little 14' flat bottom. The story about the company behind it is interesting too, the company was International Fiberglass of Venice California, and built boats on the side. They also built other fiberglass products and most of the business was built on giant fiberglass statues for advertising. Like a 20 foot mannequin. The boat was called an Eliminator, no relation to Bob Leach's company.

Anyway, this one was in his family forever and he did a great job fixing it up. Running a 1962 Merc 1000.

Cool little boat, thanks for posting it and the link, what a great site that is. Never heard of it.
Just read the 10 questions with Darris Allison...what history!
