I used to do the same with my first boat, and mine was worse. 17' Steury with an Evinrude 100. Got it for free, and quickly learned why there is no such thing as a "Free" boat.
Oddly enough, after fixing everything on it, painting it in my garage, and getting it on the water the first time, not a single thing ever went wrong with that boat again.
In 2+ seasons, I never put anything but gas and oil into it, and I beat the living crap out of it.
Sold it to a buddy, who promptly ripped the skeg off the outboard on his maiden voyage.

no comment, I'm speechless.

Surely you could have bought an old Astroglass bassboat for the same money as the Bayliner.

At least you know the depths of your initial misguidance, and have matured nicely.

Thumbs up

I bought my 1st boat in 1984 in the Atlanta Boat Show - a Mastercraft w/ a 351 Ford (still got it). For some unknown reason I decided I needed a bigger boat and bought a 1997 Caravelle (in 1997) 23 ft w a 454 / 7.4 Man I thought I ruled the water ways in that thing. It would run 63 mph and I had no idea what I was doing. If I had all the money back I've spent on high performance boats since then I could retire in luxury ! BH

I like the roll bar Hey, run what ya brung. if it wern't for that boat you would not know what quality rigging looks like. Those arn't junk and you get what you pay for but they do lack a little in quality. But hey, you were out there, right?

Hey...whatever gets you out there. People like me are sitting on the beach waiting to get the next boat, while the Bayliner crew is on the water having fun. I'd take a frickin rowboat at this point.

my first boat was a 12' seaway with a 15 evinrude. couldn't go very far but who cares at 16..... Just being out there is the important thing. Although , bayliners really do suck...
