    Default My 1978 Crusader Tunnell POS is now The Shit!

    With the help of a couple of good friends, we made it possible for this POS to turn into "The Shit". It runs strong and looks better then it did when I first bought it. Hard lesson learned when you are getting into boats and don't know too much, that is when ppl will take advantage of you. In the future, just take someone with you that knows what they are looking at!!! Thanks Hydroman916 and Bahnerman for the help, couldn't of done it without you!!!!
    And all the support from everyone on P.B.

    Nice to see it turn around! Wish my Crusader had a happy ending like yours. The guy lied through his teeth about every single thing with mine down to the cracked water jacket. I ended up buying a daytona to get me on the water faster and cheaper than fixing it. This winter I plan on tearing into the crusader and with any luck it will look as good as yours when finished. Have fun with it and I hope to see you on the water sometime.

    I took it as a lesson as well. Don't buy a boat at night in a rainstorm. Ha! My 5 year son and I had a lot of fun taking it apart and we will rebuild it together. Have fun with it.
