My friend Fred is putting this together.
The motor is a 73 Olds 455 taken from another boat that he sold, so it's pretty much a freebie.
The motor is good for sure.
The well used Bassett headers were purchased at a swap meet for $70.
The rail kit is home made.
The stainless plumbing is home made.
The trailer is home made.
Including the new intake and paint supplies, the total investment into this boat is under a grand so far.
Should be done within another month or so....
