Default Well, I bought a Speedster

I picked up this '83 Speedster back in August, just now getting around to posting pics. I hope the links work since photo bucket decided to charge now....

Looks very nice. Is it a project boat? The photo looks like you can just 'add gas and enjoy'! I like the simple graphics too.

Thank you, it's a gas and go boat 75mph gps boat. Its my warm weather "commuter" boat into work on Fridays into Washington DC. It has small stuff thats going to tweaked during the off season, and it needs a good interior cleaning.

Nice setup. It looks like someone else already spent all the money for you. Does it lean at all with the RH prop?

Classic example of you don't get back the $ you put in it when you sell it. It does lean

Tell me about it. Are you turning a 26 or 28 B1? Mine really likes the left handed prop. Your X looks like it is up there. Is that a shortened lower? From the transom assembly placement, it looks like maybe an 18" X Dimension.

I'd have to measure the X dimension this weekend to know for sure. The GPS'd 75mph is with a 28P B1, I also have a 26P that's also a right hand, haven't used it, taking up space on the kitchen floor.
