    Hello i'm new to this forum. I just purchased this boat a few days ago. Try'n to research for some info, Can anyone help me out. I'm a first time boat owner. i have a 1967 Sears / Gale Sovereign. I'm not sure what im getting into. The boat has been sitting for about 17years. The person i purchased the boat from said it was running then before it was winterised 17yrs ago. I have been wanting an old boat to fix up and this one is the ideal thing I Think.......lol Can someone point me in the right direction on where to find parts and/or any info about this boat

    It may be a little older than 67 for one thing ( 1962 comes to mind ) ------------at any rate the basic motor is a Johnson / Evinrude and parts are readily available from most good repair shops and even BRP dealers.----------NAPA / and this site have many of the parts as well.

    Post the model and serial numbers and We can get the age for You.
    That will be a sharp looking motor when it all cleaned and polished.
    Good Luck with it.

    They marketed a 5 , 15 , 25 , 40 and a V-4 60 HP----------------25 and 40 both were available with electric start.-----I am pretty sure the motor in the pictures is a 40 HP.

    sorry for not replied sooner. i have been busy moving my brother to his new house. trying to get his cars out of my driveway so i can bring this boat home...lol. Thanks to all for info. as soon as i get the model and serial numbers i will post (i take it should be on the motor somewhere). however i do have the model and serial numbers of the boat if that would help. im looking forward to getting started on the project and getting it in the water.

    That motor certainly is not the V-4 60 HP model. And the motor is not a 67 model !
