The following information was provided by the seller of this boat:

"This is a steel hulled boat project, that was always operated in fresh water, (Missouri River in South Dakota, no rust) manufactured in Louisiana by the folks that made some of the "swiftboats". Wood and fiberglass wheelhouse needs rebuilding. Included are 11 replacement windows. Boat has twin Detroit Diesel supercharged 6-71's, one showed  900 hours, was torn down for inspection, looked good, but as long as it was apart, valve job was done, and rings and bearings were replaced.. This motor now has only run-in and dyno time. (dyno'd at 251hp) Second motor shows 660 hrs, and has not been disassembled. These engines counter-rotate and have Allison transmissions attached (1.5:1), and brass propellers.   Also included is the original lighting, (1 mile-ray search light), fog horns, 4 cylinder 12k generator, 35# fire suppression bottle, stainless steel rudders, propeller shafts. controls, and instrumentation.   Boat has been in dry dock for approx. 15 yrs, both motors turn freely, This boat was spec'd in 1953 by the Corp of Engineers, and operated as a passenger transport for most of its life. This boat will need a complete refit.   Motors alone are worth the asking price."
