need help identifying seaqueen

Post by muskrat bay » Sun Sep 13, 2009 10:08 am

Hi, I recently purchased a Trojan seaqueen runabout. It has been sitting in a garage for 30 yrs. and is in awesome condition other than the dust. I am trying to identify the year and some history about it. I measured the boat and from what i figure its 14 foot and has a hull number of
92-1032. If anyone could help me identify the boat your help would be greatly appreciated. I will attach pictures in my next post thank you.

That is a beautiful original. Wish I could help you on the background info. All I have on my SkiBee is a piece of paper that gives a hull number, which I've never found on the boat, and a model year of 1961.

If you can track down the last registration from the previous owner, you would probably have the model year. With that hull number, though, you might be able to track down specific information by contacting Geourge Urban, Jr. of Pennsylvania, a former Trojan employee.

He has graciously allowed me to post his telephone and adress on this Forum:

George Urban, Jr.
1910 Barnett St.
East Earl, PA. 17519
(H) 1-717-445-5818
(C) 1-717-314-4416

He has also mentioned a former engineering employee at the original Trojan company, who had a company by the name of Marine Tech, also in Pennsylvania. ph 717-684-4145.

Here's a link to the only Marine Tech listed in PA:

http://www.manta.com/coms2/dnbcompany_6901s5

It has the same phone number as the one I got from George in '03. The name he gave as a contact is John Leeds.

When I first got my boat, you could still call direct to Trojan and buy odds and ends of parts. This was in the late '80s. I got some stainless strips for the edge of the gunwhales, a couple of which were missing. Those were the days.
