Are flat bottoms still alive?

Although there is not too many flats in New England the enjoyment my boat brings to so many people every summer is more than enough.

Maybe its just me but taking the boat out takes on a whole life of its own compared to the other 3 boats I have/had this year.

I tell people there have been times where my mood kind of sucked and I would hook up the flat and go for a ride by myself, left the water a different person, kind of a nirvana.

Nice

Tell me more about this model. If I remember only a few of these built (with the drop down dash )


Really clean boat 👍🏼
I’ll link (or try) to a thread I started years ago about it on another forum. I wish I knew more about the model, but it did seem pretty rare (one of six as told to me by the third owner who I bought it from). Bubbledeck, with that strange - bit cool IMO - gauge pod dash. Sanger titled it as a 19 foot Family Ski. It was a 1971 model, but wasn’t sold until 1975, with the first owner being drag boat racer Jack Cayer. Let’s see if the link works. If not, I’ll copy/paste the text.

This one could be a turn key affordable candidate, and I'm liking the motor placement at least from what can be seen in the pic-

...I had forgotten that I shot this video about 12 years ago... on a balmy day when I had the entire lake of Lake Oraville all to myself...
...I have seen photos of the carnage of all my toys from the fire...but I don’t have anything that isolates the the ashes of the Hallett as of yet...
