1975 Sportsman hardtop (The Otter)

Postby Otterboat » Tue Jul 24, 2018 9:23 am

I just wanted to say hello and post for the first time on the site. I have a 1975 Sportsman 28 hardtop with a single Chysler 440. We have been rebuilding and redesigning her for the last few years and wanted to show her off a bit now that she is pretty much complete. We plan on using her for recreational cruising and salmon fishing on Lake Michigan. Also wanted to say that the forums have been helpful in the process. Let me know if you have any questions about the build.

I will get some pics of the interior and cockpit as soon as I can. It has dual stations which I have been loving for fishing as it keeps me in the action while I’m driving.
