I drove it once and put maybe an hour on it. I sold it three days after I bought it.
That being said. I found out from the guy who bought it from me that it wound up going to my home town 1400 miles away to a very well respected engine and boat guy (Drew Backlund of drew marine) who originally built the motor and did the install for the boat some 30 years ago. I know the guy and after he got the boat he tore it down and pointed out that both of the head gaskets were failing, the carbs needed work, the engine mounts were loose and the ride plate was improperly adjusted all of which made sense to me as I didn't feel that comfortable in the boat even though we did several passes in excess of 70mph.
So I did the right thing but on reflecting, I wish I had kept it and had the boat gone through by someone who knew their head from their ass. Woulda coulda shoulda.
So now I wish I still had it, and want to try to get something else going in its place. Fair enough?
What it looked like when I had the most fun with it... Wish i had it still looking like this...
Tony, I've got a Pit bull that I adopted from one of the trucking co's I employ, he wandered into their yard and did'nt leave, I'm looking at him sleeping on my couch.
