11 years now,Motor has been in 10 years.Put boat in the water to go for a ride last year and the Fish and Wildlife said put it on the trailer and get some mufflers or get a ticket, and that was at the ramp.

Took the interior apart because i let some upholstery guy talk me into letting him redo it.He turned into a scumbag and i had to get the police in order to get my seat and bolster shells back.So it sits with no interior and back under the tarp it goes.My 14 old son was looking at it out at my buddies where i store it and asked if it was ever going to see water.Maybe if i move it out in the rain.

A divorice and living in a condo doesn't help either.

When I was little my dad had a project boat that lasted several years until I got old enough to figure things out and I finished it. I bought mine a 93 nova spyder that was left outside uncovered with 83 hours on it. It took 2 full days in 90 degree heat of wet sanding and buffing just getting it to look good. The second thing was have a cover made then I ran the rest of summer like that and then got into it over the winter installed a new bravo 1 and prop, new floor and whole new int including building a complete rear seat and all new trailer tires, spare, brakes etc. Last fall pulled motor and spiced it up add new auto meter gauges, depth finder, halon system re-gel- coated bilge area, added new trim pump and motor. I have replaced everything on the boat it looks and runs new I get complimented everywhere I have taken it. In a couple of weeks I am going to take it off the trailer to paint the trailer then she will be done and I haven't lost any boating time
