chaparral 87 235 XLC what to do?

Recommended Posts

Time to sell the cottage but what to do with the boat? She's been sittin a bit. Right after a brand new upper & lower unit installed took her out for one hour at the end of the season but the ol gal was not winterized properly and suffered a cracked engine. To restore or not to restore, to part out or not part out is the question. 

Looks like this but snatched the image from another member as I am currently not at the lake home.

Oh no!  Where is the boat now?  Is it on a trailer like this one? That would be a year newer and a 4 foot upgrade for me....plus I'm a sucker for a new project. :)  What motor?  Literature shows anywhere from 200hp to 454 mag.

@Denny may want to chime in.  Oh and @SSTas well.

I'm in Minneapolis.

a 6.2 would fit just nice

With my 350 and a SS 4 blade mine got 49 mph before I add all the goodies.

She's in central Wisconsin, Adams-Friendship area, Castle Rock Lake 54613 zip. Trailer is similar 

Pretty sure engine is a V8 350 mercruiser.

Actually the engine only has about 30 hrs on it...and of course a nice crack now. :'(
