I have a 16.5' Lincoln fiberglass that was new in 1968.
The original rawhide seats are now lawn chair webbing and it has plenty of spiderweb cracks, but otherwise it's in good shape. I can fish standing up and it's a good boat for poling. It's a bit heavy at 78lbs so I don't portage it for miles like I would when I was a youngster,
, but it's been a good friend for a long time.
