I just bought a 1970/71 Nova. May be hull #123. Have Texas title. I need the mechanical bits and the trailer. Got the motors out, but I've got to get the balance of the drive stuff (v-drives, shafts, rudders) removed. This one has some deck issues, and the aft deck has been modified. Has wrong (later Nova?) windshield, and aftermarket or SeaRay seats. Extra stainless tanks, etc.

I hate to cannibalize one, but it will put my project further along. Mine (122) is ready for paint. Interest?

Currently inside storage in the Kemah, Texas area.

Hi Clayton,
Another project? Did you get the Aero titled and running? It was a pleasure meeting you a few months ago. Bill

So Craig, did you get a taker? I'd hate to find out it got wasted.

Cguth is interested. I'll show him what I have within the next couple weeks (summer school ends tomorrow, and I'm a teacher).

I regret going this route (stripping the hull of what will help me, then giving the rest away), but my hull is ready for paint, and I don't have the bucks to restore two (not too sure about the one!).

I'll keep ya'll posted.

If the deal falls through, I'm interested. I would like to build a Resto-mod Nova, I owned a 79 250XL, and my Father used to rig boats at Everglades Marine in Ft Lauderdale back in the early 70s, right after Wellcraft started building them. I have been around Novas since I was 6!

Is this the boat I saw at the wood boat shop on 146 this weekend?

If it was white, outside the fence, on a trailer,...and before Friday morning 9 am, yes. If it was any other time and dark green, no. The green Nova (24122) is the one I'm throwing the money at.

Craig~~

Post some photos of your great Nova 24 /#123 restoration project.

All of us here would like to see the restoration project that you are "throwing the money at."

Yes it was the white one. I haven't seen the green one around there. I drive by that spot at least 1-2 times /week.
I'll keep an eye out for the green one if that's where the work is being done. Good Luck with it.

The green one is just behind the fence. We're waiting to do the bottom, then put it on the trailer and work on it in storage.
