Seems like just a week or two ago, Mark Miller posted he was looking
for a pre-1969, aqua bottom Johnson Surfer. Today I recieved this
(and added the information to the "forsale" page. I also added one
more entry Jim Whaley had sent me a while back, but I had misplaced),
photos to follow;

    2nd Owner boat. Original trailer and canvas. Always shedded. In the
    water twice last year.
    200 hp Buick, solid. Has 4 props that go with the boat, as the original
    owner used the boat for skiing, fishing and cruising. (days before power
    trim) I have the engine manual and the assembly manual for the boat.
    The boat is aqua bottom, white top. This is a freshwater rig. Trailer
    is red with single axle, little or no rust.
    The boat has the table, but I have never put it up. The hull is in good
    shape as well as the transom. The boats needs a good cleaning. Seats
    are in fair condition. There are a few dock hickies on the combing,
    that can be fixed.
    I know what I paid for this, but have no idea as to its worth. I'm
    looking to sell to an enthusiast. I bought it with the notion of a
    restoration project, but time has become a premium.
    The boat is as Johnson Lake, Nebraska (250 mi east of Denver on I80)
    For the right deal, I can deliver it.

    For more information

In a followup Shannon related the following;

    I have restored several mid to late 60's fiberglass boats. (The
    favorite is a 67 DeckBoat w/120 MerCruiser) My collection now has
    a 66 Starcraft Closed Bow with a 67 80hp Electromatic Sea Horse
    and a 64 larson with a 35 West Bend. The big Johnson needs to go
    where it can get some TLC as I just don't have the time (tho
    minimal) it would take to make her like new)
