|1957 Luger Kit Boat 18' Cruiser
Luger was known for all size kit boats and went out of business in the 70's.
This boat was built in 1957 and used a small block Chevrolet as the original engine. In 1967 they had Stokely Marine in Coldwater, MI design a Conversion Kit to install a 400 ci Pontiac engine. The serial number shows it was in a 1968 Catalina.
I was told the boat was always stored inside and had been in a barn from 1974 until 2005 when the gentleman I bought it from obtained it - got in running - spray painted it before selling to me in 2006.
Basically, I striped the boat, had all parts re-chromed, new upholstery, added new carpeted floor boards, re-stained, re-painted - all with marine finishes, new tires on tandem tilt trailer, removed the automobile transmission and installed Marine Velvet Drive transmission, installed a rebuilt carburetor. Boat was in the water last year to make sure all ran properly, then pulled to finish carpeting etc. I have all the original build instructions as well as all the information for using the Pontiac engine.
The boat is solid and had been fiberglassed on the bottom portion resulting in a well sealed wood boat.. Located in Lake Waynoka Ohio.|
