UPDATE: I have added a PDF that I am tracking all costs of this project. I will update it periodically. I am documenting all costs other than gas. If I bought a tool specifically for this project it is included. if you are interested you can download it here.

25' 76 Sleek Craft Ambassador. It needs a lot of work but it will be pimp when it is done. It still has the faux fur and fridge in the cabin. I think the wood grain and white part of the gel will clean up pretty well.

The good
* Floor is solid
* YJ pump has already been converted
* Hydraulic diverter
* All original and everything is there.
* Got it for a song

The Bad
* It is freakin filthy
* Interior is completely shot
* flake part of the gel is pretty faded

Kind like an Aquatic version of those 70's Dodge vans with the port hole windows , the Shag rug and the Multi colored interior lite show Ya cant tell me you didn't have one Rick ;)
LOL. Used to have one of those too but ours was a Chevy and it had green shag.

Mine has a sticker that says " If this Van is a Rockin DON'T Bother a KNOCKIN". :D You can do that in a boat?

I may move this pump to my Rebel and put my fresh stock YJ on this boat. Seems to me the Rebel could benefit more from the conversion and diverter than this sled. Any opinions on this?
Probably a good call Matt the YJ would be a good choice to get that big heavy cruiser up and moving , the Coverted deal would be a good choice for the Hot Rod ! Tom

not sure if thats the 23' or 25' but as you can see from the ad they come standard with a "Playroom"


Nice. Mine is the 23' The brochure I have does not have those pics. My wife was wanting to see a pic of the original interior when it was in good shape. That is exactly how mine was configured. you can even see the fridge cabinet in the corner opposite the Playa and his hoe.

I just passed on a boat identical to that one. It was parked in a yard for 6 years and was just toasted.
Seller seemed to think I could just rebuild the carb and go boating.
Good one.

Tomorrow I am going to look at a 21' Tahiti BBF.

I need a Delta Cruiser!
