Dan Preston's 1969 Johnson Frontrunner

These are some oldies, I am the little red head in the front and current owner. This boat was purchased at Howe's Marina in Indian River, MI and trailered in brand new from Wisconson to Mullett Lake Michigan. It has been in our family since its first bath in the lake and is going to be there until its dying day, which is a ways from now. That is about all the info I have at my house in Grosse Pointe, MI and will send more when I get a chance to head up north.

Feel free to add this photo of our wonderful FrontRunner. Used on Kentucky Lake for 15 years. It was a great boat... Very bumpy up front though but a lot of room for a 16 footer. I think it was a 1969 and we bought it in 1970. It was still in excellent condition when I sold it in about 1995 for $2500. The new owner said he couldn't believe he was buying a 26 year old boat. I would love to have it back!
