1942 17' Special Runabout Battery Box, Tool Box

Post by jcpatrick » Tue Mar 20, 2018 9:12 am

Hello, I am looking for some photos and/or diagrams of the battery box and tool box(?) and any other factory items located in the engine compartment of my 1942 17' Special Runabout. These items were missing when I bought the boat. Any assistance will be appreciated. Thanks! Jim

These pages are scanned from an article I wrote in Classic Boating magazine in the Jan/Feb 2012 issue, #165.
The first tool box shown is for late 20's, early 30's.
The CAD drawings are for your '42, 17'.

Oh Oh, the attachments didn't upload?
And now, they will upload backwards?
Read the photos from the bottom, up?
