    Welcome, and you'll not find a better place to get ideas/information/help from than the folks that frequent these boards. Lots of people in the biz... and lost of do it yourself types here.

    Nice project you got there... full stingers and Bahner ain't a bad boat to start off with for a project. Beware though... it's gonna take a lot of dough and time... but if done and spent wiesly... patience is important here... you'll be happy with the process and results.

    Good luck!

    Kidding aside....that's gonna be quite a bit of work. Do you have parts from the other boat?

    Good luck.

    If you need a pump give Jim a call.. He's in Fort Mohave, AZ.
    Here's a link to his pumps for sale& he will install for FREE...

    HOLY CRAP!!! You must be rich. Did you win the lotto? If not, you should start playing.
    Bahners are bitchin boats (had one myself). There are plenty of parts in the spam sections of these forums. Good luck with your project.

    Well thanks for the worm welcome, and at the same time scaring the shit out of me on prices it will cost.
    i have a pump that came with but no nossle it also has the motor mounts for a bbc wich is what i want i will post a pic of it because it has a little bracket on it that busted off .
    But back to cost i got the boat, tandome trailer, pump that he says is good and he works at bergeron marine so i can find him, all for $800.00
    i have a guy to do all body work and paint for the landscape i did for him
    the guy that workes for him has been doing fiber work for 25 years he said so im gonna have them take it down fill most of the holes for gauges and such so it a brand new hull i can do what i want with.
    i know im in for at least $10-15,000..

    Can be done easily on the low side of budget you set aside for it. One thing about the economy going to sheit is that parts that A were over priced, and B parts people were holding on to as "Valuable" are both for sale for bargain prices. Just gotta find 'em. (Bought an older Weiand 6-71 BBC blower setup, complete, NEW, never installed, with 2 belts and a ton of extra stuff recently for under a grand! Going on the Loogie.)

    I am currently ready to finally begin the rebuild of my 76 Saguaro 18', that I have been putting off due to other projects falling into my lap, for nearly a year! (My first ever boat purchase last December too!) and have, I think, every part I need to do it short the paint and labor (Me and the kids), and I have far less than HALF the low side of your budget so far, and am starting with about the same condition boat.

    I guesstimate I'll have around $6500 in the thing total, and that's being liberal, with extras. Not gonna be a HP monster like the Moo or the Loogie, but not bad at all! Probably hold its own pretty well, even against my own boats.

    Deals are out there, lemme know if I can help. There's a few people I've scored incredible deals for, not including myself! (Scored a friend a 1969 Copo 427 4 bolt block, '71 454 steel crank, forged everything, '66 closed chamber 'vette heads, tunnel rammed, stud gordles, roller everything, assembled and broken in for $1500, going in a Sanger I also got for him)

    Good luck, and welcome to the madness!
