Congrats! Welcome to the board. Get ten posts and then you can post some pics. Did you buy the black one that was on kijiji?

Nothing, I am sort of looking for a new hull for my drive train and I take a look at the net periodically and saw it.

I've seen the KV on for a while, would be a great project, but way over priced!

I was really hoping the kv was good as itís my favourite old school boat.... was told it was good other than a ugly paint job.... when I got there the one drive was out , motors not running, wiring was a rats nest.... void under floor of cabin was full of water... deck had splits in the glass and I imagine the core is soaked, as you can imagine you basically would have to 100 % gut it and start from scratch....

Wow, yes the ad implies that it's good to go, just ugly
It's one of my favorites as well
