Hi guys was going to say I'm not a owner, But I guess I am because I'm trying to find out some info on a boat thats been in the family garage since 1977

I have a boat that has been garaged since 1977. I know very little about circle racer boats. This is a circle racer. I don't know how to id the manufacturer. It look like the 1977 Biesemeyer that's for sale in the boats for sale section of your site. It hull looks to be in very good condition but is faded and seats tore up. It has everything in it except the engine. it had a ford big block I WAS TOLD. It still has the bellhousing adaptor for the v drive. its red boat with ford painted on the back.
I think it was complete but some kid pulled the motor for scrap or something but left everything else. It is for sale if I can Id the damn thing. If anyone could point me in the right direction, advice that would be wonderful. I'm hoping someone here might want to buy it. thanks, My name is Mel Gilliam. phone

Testing the Water - I have a 72 21 ft Cimaron

Boat was winterized and stored for several years. I got it fairly cheap at an estate sale..... Its all there big block 455 holley carb 750 (rusted up) Berkley pump solid hull
good trlr gauges work. Did a manual oil pump spin with covers off got oil pressure and all rods pushing up oil (marvel mystery) in there for penetration. I have barred
it by hand with a ratchet, no cheater bar, a half turn both clock wise and counter clockwise. The two center rockers both sides are not moving, but the rods were oiling.
What should I do now. I don't want to break it. Its a really cool old boat last registered in TN 2001. If I can salvage the engine it will need a Carburetor, foot throttle cable,
weld end of reverse lever back on (broke) but the end is still attached to reverse cable. Cable is fine. Plywood back and bottom of rear seat dry rotted must replace
I hope to fix it enough to get a few pleasure cruises out of it. I have heard that these boats are a lot of fun and can pull more than one skier. I will not be spending thousands
of dollars to completely restore this baby but a few hundred is doable. In your opinion is this a worthwhile project or should I just let it sit an enjoy talking about the potential.
Im 72 and I will not be putting it on the lake and try to max it out, unless that adrenaline surge kicks in while I am Sunday cruising. LOL
