    Default 1966 howard flatty

    i wanted to post this up for the michigan crowd, found a 66 howard flatbottom in decent shape on the original trailer, it has everything in it minus BBC its set up for, bench seat up front and bench in back that covers v-drive, seats are in pretty decent shape for being original, all hardware is there but needs to be cleaned and polished, if anyone is intrested in a project boat i have the info and some pics on my phone i can send, the guy wants $2500 for it as is, it has carpet on floor and stringers and the guy said the boat is solid but could not verify as i was in a hurry and didnt have time to go through the whole thing, its covered and in an unheated garage, told this guy i would post it up to see if anyone was looking for a project.

    Default Fyi

    I have a 62 Howard flat & it's a great hull.

    However, mine isn't a V-drive, it's a parallel drive. I don't know what years they started changing from the parallel to the V drive, but there are no propshaft release mechanisms available for parallel drives that I'm aware of and I believe the V-drive will take more power.

    It's easy to tell the difference - the parallel drive's input and output shafts are parallel (think = ) and the V-drive's input and output shafts are in a vee ( think <)

    Cheers

    Hey if it works ....don't mess with it .... I dont think a V-drive takes much power to turn the prop as long as its geared right
