I realize this should maybe be in the "Outboards" section, however the history about
Sundown Marine leads me here to "the professors" for some intell please.
A buddy of mine came across an 80's Daytona OB tracing back to Sundown in H.B. CA. (DYL)
The Biesemeyer top deck was rather obvious... So I dug in here & did my research.
Although Sundown's reputation was not stellar, let's not talk trash about anyone. Just looking for info.
We know Sundown purchased & used molds from "some of the great builders" back in the 70-80's
Don't know much about the lower hull here with the 150 OB. Could this be "Beezer" molds too?
Full stringers, 1" I think. Looks like she was rigged properly w/ offset motor, saddle tanks, etc.
Deck has some "sun spider cracks" & a few minor stress on the hull. Nice Competitive tandem trailer
Boat hasn't run since 2001 & needs to be gone thru. Family said it ran great. (Owner passed I believe)
My instincts tell me if it is ALL Biesemeyer, it could be a nice 90mph+ with more motor & right set-up.
Could there be any value or is she just another 50mph family ski boat?
