I'll be honored to share my pictures. As far as I know, it was the last contract Aroliner had. It was "?" for the US Coast Guard, build to their Specs and involved 18 units. To test the market, Aroliner built some extra units and a friend of mine ended up with one of them. As he had a larger boat also, it got more mileage on the trailer as on the water. I bought it with an est. 25 hrs on the engine. The performance is second to none. It pops out like a cork at half throttle, and planes with very little spray. It had originally the two front seats, also two pedestals. I removed the old consoles and installed alum. consoles, Instruments and a new steering wheel. Later I added power tilt to the motor. The boat is a bit overpowered and easily cruises at 50, tops out at about 70 ( by myself, bimini top down ).

I will close in the back and go to a Yamaha 60 Fourstroke on a transom bracket this summer, as I always had trouble back trolling.

As the boat is at the lake, I'll send you the serial No. later. I am also not aware of any "stock name" or description. It is 16 - 1/2 ft long. March 2008

Hi Doug and Aroliner Club Members

It was hard work but it had to be done. I finally notched Aroliner ser # LWN2235CM83E-16LU ( I found the tag ) into the 21st Century. My motor was delivered after July 1. so it is a 2008. I decided to close in the transom and hang the motor on a 12" bracket. I also added a fuel tank with a deck fill. To take care of the extra weight, I installed an app. 20 gal flotation tank. As an incentive to my efforts I discovered that the transom consisted of a 1-3/4" ( 1"+ 3/4" ) treated fir plywood.

As I expected, the motor has incredible midrange power and the boat is out of the water like a cork at 3200 Rpm. I can't cross 3500 RPM until broken in, which will be next year. Until then, all the best for the holiday season on all. October 2008   Klaus B.
