The boat came the the 289 interceptor ford engine and eaton outdrive. It was a mess so I opted for a 1986 doner boat with a volvo 350 and 280 outdrive that i picked up for $800. Engine and out drive had just over 300 hours and started right up and shifted perfectly :laugh: . I sold many of the part off that i did not need to cover the purchase of the doner. This option made the most sense to me.

To date I have pulled out old engine and drive, removed the floors and have removed transom. I just put in my order to us composites for epoxy material. Cant wait to start putting stuff back in the boat.

I can only find one image of the boat on the web...would love to see one put together
