V6 Buick, engine was good when parked 6 or so years back (ran it in the back yard, never put it in the water). Oiled the cylinders for three years, neglected in the last three or four. Pistons may be seized.
OMC Drive unit is completely disassembled, needs new forward spring-clutch unit.
New drive-unit lift motor.
New poly fuel tank (one of two tanks)
Fiberglass seems to be ok, but I'm completely ignorant about these things...
Includes two-axle trailer that needs new tires.
Bought it from a neighbor cheap, thought I'd have time for a new boat life - but didn't!
If someone could direct me to a good way to find a home for it, I'd sure appreciate it! I need one less project!
(Oh yeah, includes 8-track player -grin)

Yeah, I'd be all over that if it were within 100 miles of me. I'm still kicking myself that this estate sale find turned out to be a dud. Old guy treasured this boat for decades. Got sick, family didn't winterize, cracked the heads. Got better, had the engine rebuilt, got sick and died. When I bought it, it started and purred like a kitten. And made cappuccino in the crankcase. :cry
Beautiful lines. Had a 6 cyl Mercruiser in it, too. It was from an obscure boat mfg that got bought out by Bayliner. Wasn't a total loss. I paid $150 for it. Sold the trailer for $250, and kept the MinnKota trolling motor.
