I think it would still be a close race

I just noticed that those drives look eerily familiar to regular 1" shaft bravos with just IMCO caps on there for the steering and not anything special like XR's or IMCO's

Point being though, If I didn't have my Nortech, I would jump all over that boat. As long as those drives were rigged from the factory, they will be set at the right height. I bet it would run OK with some 6-700HP mills in it, and with some Teagues, or Imco's under there, you would have a decent boat.

What if you went ahead and put the Arneson conversion on it, and then you could spin a big enough wheel to get it to handle OK.

Just thinking out loud......

Cheap price for the hull. The engines and drives are a joke. It baffles me why somebody went to the trouble rerigging with junk. Just sell the hull. Those engines and drives are worth about 5k if they run.

yeah but if the guy sells the power/drives for 40K then he has a few buck in spending money before the paperwork even gets started on the repo!

My thoughts:

Always been a bravo boat because, if they were truly just swapping for cash, there is no way they would have put the power steering system on AFTER switching drives.

I bet there is a TON hidden and wrong in that thing.

If this is the boat I believe she ran 155 to the 1st card stop.
Not sure what power she had at the time.
