So one of the few things I really never thought Id do was own a boat... and well, Im here now so I guess its obvious what Ive done.
So a few years ago a guy that moved in next door to me from las vegas had his garage door open and inside was a shabby white corvette and this old crazy colored retro looking boat (hardin marine carribean). Well I tried to buy it many times to no avail and one day he priced it to me for 12k!!! I thought, well thats nuts so I offered to help him sell it to keep it from just rotting away in storage. So, pretty quickly he realized it was over priced and he came to me again and offered it at half his asking.. to which I said ehhhhh okay let me check it out first.
Well, hooked it all up and got an external fuel pump (wasnt getting fuel from the mechainical one) and WHATDYA KNOWWW cracked block! lol
I guess living in vegas he never had to worry about winterization? Anywho, I just picked it up finally for what I think is a steal and I plan to bring it all back and run it, hopefully sooner than later. The upholstry needs some attention and the wood in the conch needs to be replaced as well but other than that shes in pretty good shape!
