For the record and our archives, here is an exceedingly rare boat these days, and quite honestly it is "the only one" we have seen here on THE FORUM, which with our coverage of these Corsair and Sea Skiff models, makes it a very rare one, indeed.
Thanks to Joe Hicker, of Seattle, who has Corsair Sea V 20 footer hull ID: ORCZ-20-0055N
"Yes I have a 1966 Sea V 20 Transdrive powered by a 150 HP OMC/Buick V6. Ive had it five years now and love the boat despite having had to do a lot of work on it initially. It looks great, handles great, and is just the right size. Im a Thompson Lapstrake nut but lack the skills and patience to own a wood boat, so this was the perfect alternative (I had a 59 Thompson Offshore 19 for about 10 years before this boat). The OMC stern drive and intermediate unit were totally shot in mine but I found good condition replacements on Craigslist at reasonable prices. Ive found the old electric shift OMC to be highly reliable despite their reputation as antiquated, and Ive found parts sources and a good local mechanic familiar with them to give advice. With any luck Ill be launching mine for the summer this weekend I keep it moored June through October. Hopefully summer weather will follow its been very cool & wet up here in Seattle this past week. I have yet to see another one of these in this area but recall reading a reference to one at some point. I really appreciate all youve posted on the Corsair line and the Thompson Chris-Craft connection. Its an interesting lineage. I dont think there was ever a better looking glass lapstrake than these Sea Vs. Heres a couple of older poor quality pics of mine I can send better ones from home if youre interested."
Here are the photos Joe sent in.
Many thanks Joe !!
