I was raised on the Seneca river and as a kid I would see all these crazy looking little boats running around that looked like cars and always thought someday I am gona have me one or a few.lol

Well about 50years and way to many boats to count I finally got one and I have become obsessed for lack of a better term. I stumbled on a 59 CC Sea Ray and started making plans for a total resto but have been playing with some custom ideas also.

After just 2 weeks I came across another one and drug that home also. A 64 but it is rough not real sure about it yet and I don't dare tell my thoughts here yet being so new and all.

Just realised I didn't say what the 64 was, I think it is a Tiger Ray. Square deck Glass winshield with tail lights sorta/

The '64 looks like the '63 styling on the fins, what makes you say it's a '64?

That  one may have the numbers on it? They would be inside the transom/splashwell area.

Anyway, welcome! Looks like you have a coupe of nice projects there!!

The paper work I got with it says 64. I haven't found the #s yet.  I am thinking it might be to far gone to restore so if anyone out there needs parts let me know. The deck might be saveable but the bottom is delamenated and transom is falling off. I have been thinking about useing the hull sides for the rear deck doors I want to put on the 59.

as soon as the weather warms up a bit I am going to cut the 64 apart before it falls apart. Anyone need anything from it?

I have tried on here and a few other sites to find a new home for The Tiger Ray and have had no luck. I cannot have it sitting in my yard much longer.

I will give it about 2 more weeks and it has to get cut up like it or not. I do have a plan for 75% of it but the rest will be in 1 ft squares for the land fill. Please if anyone wants this speak up now I have done all I can.
