Hi Shaink, not that it matters in the grand scheme of things, but Earl was the style of a boat of which more than a couple were made, it was not the name of an individual boat.
Just my 2 cents worth......

Anyone on here have any info on this boat?
So far I have found out that it was built by Stitch in the 80's or early 90's.. It's 16' long, 8° Deadrise, 215 Buick V8 and a Berkeley pump..

HI Andy, boat was built by Stich for a fellow named Jack Reid in Drayton Valley, not sure of the year but your time frame is close, Jack sold the boat to Norm Obst from Drayton in 1995, Norm had the boat for a few years and sold it to a fellow named Peter McVerny from Stoney Plain, not sure who or what from there, but the little boat has been around and still looks good.
