Nice to see you are saving an old Magnum Missile. There is a lot of good information out there on them as was posted. A gentleman in CT has a fully restored one that he runs a rare Super Strangler on. Where in NJ are you located and welcome to the site.

I am just south of trenton, I found it near the NJ/PA/NY border. It's in rough shape but it's already gutted so that is something

Yeah, I heard that. Anything I could do to it to improve it while its gutted? Also it looks like the cap is removble?

I've got a thread started on iboats, for more of the general aspects of the boat. A major point that was brought up is that if the boat is a wood core hull there is a good chance that its junk. Could anyone tell me about the build construction of this? I may be mistaken but since I have a gutted boat it seems as easy as throwing in a floor, glassing it and glassing in a transom.

I know of one person who got seriously hurt in a Magnum Missile which resulted in a life long injury to his leg .
