    1979 16' GMC 'Cobra Jet' with a Mercruiser 140 I/O

    Last summer I saw this boat sitting on the side of the road with a for sale sign on it.
    Apparently the second owner allowed it to sit in the water with a broken shift cable boot.
    After it was raised from the bottom I bought it for $200 and began restoring it.
    I have learned that it was made by the 'General Marine Corp' out of Milwakee, Wis.
    GMC was in business from the mid 70's to the early 80's. They primarily made V8, Jet Drive boats but did make a number of these for a marine dealer.
    I found a Facebook page dedicated to these boats and that is where I got this information.
    Any further information anyone can provide would be very helpful.
