Help with boat identification

Postby cmockert » Fri Jul 17, 2015 7:39 am

My sister-in-law just recently came into a new Thompson boat the she and her husband are going to restore. I am hoping to find out more information about it. Perhaps the exact make/model/year of the boat. I have taken lots of pictures, and all plates are intact on the boat.

Length = 16'
Beam = 6'
Hull Number = L9Q656
Serial Number = 14093
Motor = Johnson Outboard 50hp
Motor Model Number = 50ES71 S
Motor Serial Number = E3528353

Welcome aboard!

She is a boat made by Thompson Bros. Boat Mfg. Co. of Peshtigo, Wisconsin. She is a 1959 Sea Coaster. HULL ID L90656 indicates she was the 656th boat of all models made in the 1959 model year. The letter "L" is a code for the guy in the factory that was in charge of getting this boat out the door. SERIAL NO. 14093 falls within other known 1959 model year boats.

The brochures of Thompson et.al. have been scanned and put onto CD-ROM or flash drive. It can be purchased at www.wcha.org
