Thumbs up Thanks everyone on O.S.O. , got the Ocean Express from Lake Mi. what a ride!!!!!!1

Wow, went to the West coast(mi) to do the sea trial of the 25 O.E. w/ twin 260 Yamaha's. BOUGHT THE BOAT!!!!!. We were in 4-5's w/the occasional rogue, at 70+mph., talk about air-time(a little chilly 45deg.w/wind). Can't wait to 'FU-Fu it up to its former glory. It used to belong to Ron Giff who'is'PIER33 marina in ST. Joseph, MI.they raced the boat back when APBA. had their @#[email protected]# together 1990-95 it won a couple of races! This will be a great boat for my wife and I. Thanks for all the help I have received from everyone on this board in doing my research. You were right, take time to evaluate each "deal" out there and do your homework. Just a bunch of cosmetic stuff needed. Got some time before it's good boat'n. Again thanks O.S.O. and all my'posse'out there you helped make it all happen!!!!!!!!!!!!!!If anyone remembers this boat let me know. Thanks again, Bill

Thanks Tom,Dave, Can't wait to get out and cruise. The boat is structurally all there , Transom , stringers ,bulheads,tanks,etc. just needs cosmetics (wet-sand & wheel-out) and the vinyl grafix are a little screwed up just needs to be straightened up a bit and its all party from there!!!!!!!!!!

Dave you caught it ,The drive on the port motor has a new lower! but I have the original complete that I'm sending out for rebuild(lower pickup,etc.) should be pretty cool. After seeing the colors on the boat you did , I think I should reconsider the grafix!
