    Default New Boat

    Hello everyone, new around here but from Michigan, the Grand Rapids area.

    After being without a boat for 15 years, I picked up a 73' Tahiti. Not so much a hot boat, but it will serve its purpose and give me something to tinker with.

    Now I just need it to be spring. Or may March, I cant have the garage until winter is over and I want to wet sand and wheel it to see if I can get any sorta shine on it.

    Pic from the the forsale post, I didnt take any before re-winterizing and covering it up.

    Yep it is a 455, pretty much stock turns 4200RPM at 60mph.

    I have a built short block 455, that i plan to swap at sometime, so that I can spray it. Don;t expect this hull to ever be fast, but looking to have some fun again on the water. I'll watch here for some of the meets.
