Maybe you should just rerig it with twin 300 promaxes and get the best of both worlds.New wiring and more cockpit space for alot less than a whole new boat.Just a thought.

Nick, As a older Scarab owner {83 Scarab-3} I personaly would spend the money and do it. I don't know about you, but
not having a big boat payment makes boating a lot more fun...owning a "classic"is kind of cool! you seem to have worked out alot of "bugs" already and buying another used[I assume you'd buy used] you could be starting over..I've done alot on mine with minimal cost..a fraction of new cost. I did buy new in 1993..had alot of problems it went back to the factory three winters in a row!!my 2 cents...Dave

First you should pay me!!

Second you should rewire the thing yourself and save yourself a lot of money. Just take your time and label wires as they come off. Not a hard thing to do just takes time and patience.

Get the new boat, haven't you had other problems that are not electrical related. It's nice when you don't have to wonder what's gonna break next. Good luck!

Compared to 1978 a 95 would be brand new....

Thinking of getting a 95 hull with no motors , and new warrantied outboards...

hmmmmmmmm..

Oh all right.

Dude, I would do it myself, but I SUCK as a mechanic... dont you follow my post.

Id try and turn on the boats engine, and a whole city block would lose power. I **** you not.
