Thank you. This is my first boat, I've always wanted a boat and I saw this one on local classifieds for 400$ boat,
Trailer, engine and a bunch of boating/fishing gear. Seemed just too good of deal to pass up the older guy was moving to
A smaller house and had to get rid of his "toys". I've looked at the transom, hull and floor they are all solid with no cracks.
Is there anything else I should check out? Thanks again in advance. Oh and the boat also has new wiring, fuse box and
The seats are obviously not original, check carefully for quality of construction if you decide to keep them. I am not sure, but the engine looks like a 28hp, enough to push the boat, no skiing and not very fast. Any plans for more hp?
Yeah I am thinking about a 1972 65hp Johnson that's in the local classifieds and getting some different more comfortable seats. Just not sure if that's too much engine for the boat, it being 43 years old I don't think I should push it too hard.
