  • Bertram 20 350 chev (part1)

    Gday all,

    I have recently purchased the old gal below and doen a little bit of work to it.

    As "not quiet finished" its running a 260hp Volvo V8 (350 chev block)
    Volvo Penta 280 outdrive
    runs 75km/h flat out (for now )
    sits on an old gal trailer (for now) weighing in at 2500kgs all tolled.

    When I picked her up, she was an unfinished project. it had a rebuilt 6 cylinder volvo aq170. I got her finished and was not happy with the performance so decided for the V8 swap. I havent looked back.

    This as she sat when I first saw her.

    Swapping trailers as the old one was like an oil rig

    Sittin pretty

    Six coming out

    See part 2.
