    I just acquired this NOS 1976 Kindsvater 19' Flatbottom from a friend. It was ordered about 44 years ago and was delivered and then sat in a warehouse and never rigged. My plan is to build this as if it was built in 1976 with just a few minor updates mechanically. I have virgin 354 Hemi that I will rebuild NA with either Hillborn injectors or dual carb, original Nicson parts, transom through exhaust, forward and rear bench seats, Casale V-drive, hidden stereo (have to have music on my boat).Looking to make it a honest 60-70MPH river/ski boat for the family to enjoy. Planning on having it ready for next season. I will update the build process as I go. IMG_3783.jpeg IMG_3784.jpeg IMG_3785.jpeg IMG_3786.jpeg IMG_3787.jpeg IMG_3782.jpeg

    Started building a dolly for the boat today to get it off the trailer, easier to work on and the trailer needs many repairs and an altitude adjustment (down). Once I get the Dolly built it will head over to Don Mumma at Fantasy Rigging to get rigged. IMG_3907.JPG IMG_3908.JPG IMG_3909.JPG
