Just ran across this ad in the Cleveland Craigslist for a 1990 Angler with trailer and 70hp outboard for $3500. Ad says it's been sitting outside for at least 10 years. There are a few pictures and it looks like a project.

Wish it was closer, project.

Someone was looking for an Angler.

My concern would be out in the weather for 14 winters--with snow and ice--freeze and thaw cycles. If any water got into the core--could need re-do. But that is doable. A bargain for some one who what's to do a restoration.

If that Johnson is a two cycle, there can't be too much wrong with it. Wink

My 1988 had spent most of it's life outside and the biggest problem I found was mold. Teeth

Good find. I agree - lots to do. As Thataway mentioned, it's not unlikely that there are core issues. My 2: borrow, rent, or buy a pinless moisture meter and check all cored surfaces for changes in the meter readings. There's some pretty good info on the Web on how to use them in this application, as well as their limitations. It was, for me, a real eye-opener on the situation with my transom and hull.

All the best to you with your project. I hope you keep us posted with your findings and progress.

P.S. In addition to the C-Dory specific help one can find on this site, a guy I follow who has been a big help to me is Andy Miller at Boatworks Today; more generic boat restoration info. You can find his posts on Youtube and on his Patreon site.

Welcome aboard, and congratulations on buying the boat! All things are repairable--including old 2 stroke motors

Agree--you want to know relative dampness of the core, and the Ryobi moisture meter will do that quite well. Also learn to 'sound out" The core--using either a small phenolic hammer or. plastic handle of a screw driver. Tap ever inch to get comparison. Look for places where holes were trilled for screws--most likely the buttons and straps which hold the fuel tanks in place.

Most likely that motor will run with some TLC.

Great find. You will find lots of joy in that boat!

Boatgerl,

Between my wifes sailboat and my vintage C-Dory, weve gotten fairly familiar with how to use moisture-meters to assess the condition of cored fiberglass. That said, we're not hot-shots; we've just been around the block a time or two... Dr. Bob (aka, thataway) has just a little bit more experience with boats and boating than I do. I agree with him, that tapping a hull is an important skill/method to learn to assess the condition of your boats fiberglass cores. Another 2 of mine is that Id go over all cored areas of the boat with the pinless moisture meter, marking the location of notable changes in the readings (say, 10%, 20%, 30%) with a grease pencil - basically making contour lines of those variances. Then, Id get out the hammer of your choice to double-check and refine the characterization of those readings. Lots of info on the web on that as well.

I dont know that Ive written the moisture meter approach very well. If youre interested in chatting about how-to, PM me and the wife and I will be happy to help out.
