Well i came to the conclusion that the other mini day cruiser i picked up was a little too far gone for me to tackle and be on the water this season. So i scoured the state and found her replacement once again lol. A 10hr drive and almost 600 miles i pulled this home yesterday.
Just like the first boat i owned mine was a 77 my dad bought it in 79.Ours had the same motor set up i can tell theres still quite a few original stuff on that engine the skit tow,black intake,water logs,that little alm thingie where the wires connect at the rear of motor,etc,
I see it still has the no slip things on the rear top side of boat too.
new season new setup.
