    Hey all,
    Just joined the forum today, lots of info on here but having trouble finding 26 novi boats with outboards. My uncle has a 26 that sank in its slip for 12hours or so about 15 years ago and has been stored inside since. Only the back end sank and the bow stayed up and I think they got her running again but not much use after that so motor is probably junk. I am working on getting some pictures of the boat and trying to figure out the manufacturer. I think it had a 115hp outboard with a hydraulic pump on the top. This was my grandfathers boat so very excited to get it back on the water and fishing again. I look forward to starting a build thread once I have more information but was looking for some general information 26ish novi hulls until I can get that started. Any information on these sized Novis would be great, thanks!

    Leblanc Boats made a 26' novi I think. Post photos and I'm sure people will help identify it. Welcome to DEBF!

    Finally got my eyes on her, she needs some love but can already tell shes going to be a beauty. Can anyone help me identify the hull? The full story is that her stern sank but was refloated in 4 hours or so and actually ran another season before her early retirement. I am going to spend some time looking at other restorations on here but if anyone has some advice or opinions I am happy to hear them!

    So she is for sure not a 26, measured from transom to furthest point on the bow and it’s 22’
    Can anyone help me identify this beauty now? I’m thinking a 22 sisu
