Welcome! Need support, you got it. Or share you ideas and experiences.
I recently was given a 12 foot sears gamefisher tri-hull. I tried to register it so that I can use it for stripper fishing and I can't seem to determine the age of the hull. My local DEM informed me that after 1973, all boats were required to have a 12 digit serial number. I can't find any serial numbers, just a part number that begins with 107.611___? Does anyone know the history of who made these boats and what time period they were bought and sold. I would appreciate any help.
I just got one of these too. They were made by MFG boats for Sears. Mine has some holes and I patched them up with Bondo Fiberglass Resin and matting. I have been in search of a motor for quite some time though. I bought the boat and trailer for $150! I did have to remake the transom by removing all the old rotten wood, putting in my own, and then making a support frame back there. I sanded the whole thing, primed it, and painted it black and white striped. Haven't had it out yet, but one day once I get a motor.
I have never seen a 12 foot game fisher. I do own a 14 footer. They are pretty common and were made in the late 70's to late 80's early 90's They are molded fiberglass, usually off white in color. with blue seats/benches. The hull I.D. number should be on an aluminum plate riveted on the out side of the transom. Usually the left side and probably will begin with mfg followed by several numbers. Donot know who made these little boats. They seem to be more popular now than when they were made. I have an 85 complete out fit with boat motor and trailer bought it in excellent cond for 600.00 would not sell for less than 2000.00. great river boats and salt flats boats. need help let me know., T.G.
