Thanks for the info. Is ithere a description online? The engines are not as big a deal for me as i 'd rather find a boat with no power to put virgin power in. What kind of drives? But that would be i find a hull in good condition. I am not a guy that is familiar with glass work so i wouldn't even know how to discount that. Is fixing a bulkhead big bucks? I am assuming the boat wouldneed to be taken apart unless the problem bulkhead was in the engine compartment.
I thought i saw a 1981 listed for sale for 60K in south carolina. sounds like the same boat. I think the 81s have a different deck style than the 86-87s. I haven't seen a real good pic of the 81s. I really like the styling on the 86s.
Would you know anything about doing diesels with a 39 ocean/express cat? Would you be able to throw out a ballpark estimation of perfromance with the 465yanmars with arnesons?
