I would just guess @ $100,000.00 to make it prestine....I would love to help you if laid purchase. I own RainsPerformanceMarine in Afton, OK....Can help you get parts cheaper than most..........Sounds like a great Fall project to me...........Just bring plenty of "COLD ONES."

That's a lot of boat for no money but if you figure in the cost of #six drives and 1000h.p. motors and interior and rigging. Wow, the number would be huge. Over $100,000 needed.What a project! Unless you had the above mentioned parts laying around, way more than the completed project would be worth. Doug

What kind of boat is it? Is it just me, or is there a LOT of exposed (and therefore rotted) wood in those pics?

Not a bad looking boat. Colors work well together.

Forget the 6's and 1000HP..... 525's for reliability

You would need more than 525"s and bravos to move this boat, with that combination it would be a drive breaking really slow turd. That hull wouldn"t see 85 m.p.h. with 525"s. It would be a very slow but pretty Jaguar. Doug

Theirs better deals than that out there if you look . We have picked up a few and turned them. My Fountain was one of the deals we found and I know I won't lose money on it.
