Free, rare project - AMF Hilu Proa  Bottom

  • Located near Stanwood, WA

    Hi all.

    This spring a neighbor was getting rid of it and I ended up parking the project in my yard.
    The boat is very rare - only a handful were built That is the reason why I prevented it from going to the landfill.
    PDF manual: https://www.rvharvey.com/hilu-manual.pdf
    Plenty of pictures of others out there: https://www.rvharvey.com/hilu.htm

    Issues:
    - If a title is needed, I do not have one, neither does the neighbor.
    - Has been sitting in the elements for a looong time. Both foam filled hulls are waterlogged.
    - Aluminum strip on fiberglass seam has been removed
    - Sail is not nice to look at (apparently Sunfish sails work as well)
    - All wood is barely there. Good enough for a template but rotten!

    The few good things:
    All boat specific hardware should be there!
    I also received a folder with logo, measurements and other info on this boat the prev. owner received.

    With the arrival of my own boat now this got pushed over the horizon and I cannot see myself touching it.
    All is currently disassembled.

  • Apologies, I should have put that in the title.
    I'm nowhere near AL. The boat is in northern WA.

  • Just roll it up and ship it. It is an 82 hour drive round trip. Should cost me about $600 in fuel. What's funny is my wife was saying we should take a trip to Seattle for our Anniversary in 364 days...

    You just need to find more catamarans on the way to make it worth the trip. dance
  • Hey diewurst, do you still have the parts? I'd actually like to put the time into restoring it. I'm in Oregon and would do a road trip. Thanks!
