picked up this model for 700 with a tri axle trailer

need to make a hatch cover for these.


guessing thats one way to quit a 3.0 down :) lol


stringers and transom are solid , looks like more cosmetic work on this then anything and of course going over the drive system :0
says was made in 8 89 but think its a 90 model year because where the cutouts for the ventilation are, in top section not on bottom of the boat,self bailing hull reallly saved the stringers imho and the fact it appears boat was stored under cover .

hahaha well i do have to yank a waterlogged engine :) looks as if someone left the air cleaner off or something but the thing was full of water, so i took the hose from outdrive and ran garden hose into that, kept checking oil pan and no water so not sure..... if i cant free it up its gone and maybe a v8 implant :)

Sam could come and see, however , i have decided to remove the outdrive and stuff anyways so we will get a closer inspection, but if you saw how big the transom wood was you would be callin that cheating too rofl its a 2ft x2 foot area ! i know these originally had omc/volvo engines/stringer outdrives at some point but id not even looked at it if this one had one.

Boat looks like a mighty comfortable ride ! I would most certainly install some form of air conditioning for the summer ....

well..... you got half right.

believe it or not stringers good the transom had a leak around bolt holes so that was wet to stringers but the stringers were sealed to the outer skin so no water penetrated them and wood was wet not rotted yet so that wasn't so bad came out hard had black mold of course but wood still showed strength . :).

guessing how it was built they layed up stringers to outer hull then cut a piece of wood to fit in that area above them and sealed that in ill post a few pics after i clean mess up to show what i mean.

is ok kc looks like i might be de capping anyways.... i want to get to the sides and there is no way i can figure out how to be ab le to replace hoses and outlets on the sides without de capping ....even just the back area would be helpful not a full cap off because the stringers i drilled looked great :0
