It took a while, but I finally found a few pics of my old val.
She's a 1973 flightcraft phantom, pimped up a bit :lol:
Used to think the wake was good until I got the old school nautique :wink:

So, Ken, at last we see the enlarged avatar 8O ....and you called it Val .....
1. After an old girlfriend?
2. It was a Valiant Motor?
3. Short for Valhalla?


If you used to think the wake was good before you got the old School Nautique, wait till you get a Malibu :lol: Sorry, couldn't resist..J/K
It looked the goods 8)

I'll take number 2 thanks - 360 Chrysler, comes with free rust. :lol:
Ran perfect when used every week - don't touch it for a number of months due to knee recon and she's not a happy camper :cry:

hey ken - i'm real, keen to make up a swim platform for the back of mine - i noticed you've got one on yours - did you make it yourself?.

I have a friend who is a sheet metal worker - he can make a stainless steel or aluminium frame for me and then i will choose some wood decking of some kind - have you got any suggestions?

All these old school boat's make's me remember humble beginings, I had a 16 foot savage electra ( can't find the old photo's) it took me a month to rebuild the inside and I don't know how much $ on the 1974 135hp johnson and I'm sure it ran 1 in 10 times. This forum goes to prove you don't need big boat's and big $ to enjoy wake boarding, it also gives you a bit of pride when you work hard on your boat and it goes to plan. :P

Hey nich_s. It is a Hammond pre 1972. The deck was changed around that time & yours has the older deck. :D
Its good to be the king

nich - get your mate to build a couple of brackets, remember to brace on the inside and get into it.
Use teak for the boards and oil em up - don't varnish it.
