I found a potential project!! Its a 1975 Wriedt Montara 23, w/ berkley pump. Its not my ideal hull design, but most of the lakes/rivers around here can get pretty choppy, so it'd be nice to be able to handle them. That blue up on the bow is gay, but overall its pretty nice, I wouldn't want to re-paint the whole thing, but maybe that blue could be turned into some flames or something.
I went and checked it out, its all solid, transom's good, the floor is good, all the gauges and wiring is there, has the bellhousing, ready to drop in a BBC. The impeller didn't look chewed up or pitted, and the pump case was still nicely painted and not pitted and ugly. But thats with my ignorance...so could be the biggest piece of sh*t ever, but it didn't appear to be.
It needs a throttle cable and control or hot foot, but i dunno about a hotfoot on that deep of a hull.
The shift cable (if thats even what you call it) needs to be replaced, looks kind of pricey...
Also, he said there's a front (or i guess rear if we're talking from bow to stern) rope seal that is leaking, any ideas about that?
he's asking 1000obo w/ trailer, seems like he just wants it gone, could probably get it for 800. Whatcha guys think?
