Morning, went to see the boat and motors yesterday. Motors are 200 hp but I think he's asking too much for the pair $5,500 and he said the I/o was 200 hp About the boat, transom area needs much more shoring up and fiberglass work and wiring is a mess, remaining work appears to be cosmetic. Boat is in a storage facility stall but appears to have been sitting for a while (dirty spider webs etc.) Here's the big issue, all I have right now to pull this is a 96 Ford bronco and this boat must be at least 5,000+ pounds. Will it pull the boat yes, safely probably not. Even with all this I would like to have and work on this beast. I figure a good year to get it where I want it and by that time have an old body style ford f250 or 350.
He offered the whole package for $6,000. I figure maybe just get the boat and worry about a motor after all needed repairs and clean up. Can't believe I'm considering this but the idea of working on it really excites me. I'm no kid, will be 64 next month. I remember my Dad would get excited about projects like this, enjoyed the work more than the use after all was done.
