One thing to note if anyone is thinking of resurrecting it!
The cabin has an inner liner.(Floor & Sides) Should make real easy for cleaning once you unsnap the interior.
Hard part would be getting the liner down and replacing it.

Just a thought! It is not like it was all carpeted through out. Now that would be tough!

What would be a good price to offer for that boat? I wouldn't mind having another project.

$3500 was the starting bid.

That would be a steal if you got it for that!!!

Wouldn't you be able to just shove some type of plug or something in the gimble bearing in a situation like this where a drive comes off to stop or at least slow down water coming in?

keep in mind that the fuel tank has a hole in it. i went down this weekend and looked at it and the motors are locked up too. it is a mess had troble just looking at it . but the boat is still in nice shape. it would be a boat to sell for parts i think.

A t-shirt usually does the trick!

Seriously, that's all it would have taken.
