A journal of the history of the '60s Batman Batboat, how I came to buy a replica and my hopeful adventures in repairing and making it a functional Anti-Crime cruiser.

A new Batboat surfaces on eBay.
A really cool 1977 Seacraft appeared on eBay recently. It was turned into a "Batboat". I don't know about that decision but it still is a great lake runabout sports craft. If in 100% working condition.
Bidding didn't meet the seller's reserve and stopped at US $2,600.00, which is very reasonable for a watercraft these days.
All of the black paint would cook anyone who is out on the water with it, IMHO.
The auction description...
"One of a kind, custom built, BATMAN BOAT.
New 350 with mercruiser outdrive, new interior with Batman on all seats
and engine cover, New headliner, new carpet, spotlight with Batman on
it, new am/fm/cd player, AC , fresh paint. Custom bat wings on back of

kids and adults will love it. This boat is listed local and I can stop
