No thanks on the pictures I have enough of my own bullet conversion some of which you posted for me a couple of years ago when I started to convert mine to outboards. That is mine in the trader and no I don't expect to get the asking price. An old friend that happens to be a broker realy liked the way it turned out and asked if I wanted to sell it. I said no and he said would you take $100k I said to him if you have some one with that kind of money I will think on it. I think he is in another world but let him dream he has no idea what it should sell for. Next year I will think about a decathelon or a bigger open fish cigarette and adjust the price.

Will have to admit not a fan of the OBs on a bullet but you did do it right and made a huge cockpit. Also did a lot of work. Wish you would share some build pictures,

Show us some pictures of what and how you are doing it. I have plenty of mine and we all find it interesting. I am at [email protected] if you want any help. The important thing is transome support. You must think of it prior to installing your bracket.
