    1974 55' Kingscraft - Remodel

    Hello,
    I just purchased a 1974 55' Kingscraft houseboat.. and i'm excited to be it's new owner. I would like to start out with a user manual, but I can't find one. Can anyone assist me with this?

    Welcome Aboard.

    Those things are hard to find for a 46 year old vessel.
    That Aluminum boat is a great one.
    Congrats on the purchase!!!

    Looks great!
    I ran a Bareboat Charter with a 36' Gibson, here in Pensacola some years ago.
    It is fun sharing houseboating with others.
    Of course, I see you will only allow dock usage, with the Airbnb rental.

    User manuals are pretty much non-existent. Also a boat that age certainly has had plenty of hands changing things around. I’ve owned a KC, a Marinette, and now a Pluckebaum. I can help answer questions.
