Well, at least it happened before you bought it.

Just curious, did the Baja have a 502 with a Bravo 1 drive??

Now when we tryed to recrank and it ran for ABOUT 1 min when all of the sudden you could tell it threw a rod.. Just my luck.. Well if that wasnt bad enough we started taking on water.

We were in the lake for about 3 hrs before any one showed. Now not only did the motor blow and we were taking on water,, BUT THE DEGUM BILGE PUMPS DIDNT WORK!!!!!!!!!!

Now the engine compartment is half full and water in the cabin...We still dont see a boat in sight.... Finally 6 hours later the boat was on the trailer and rolling back home.......

SO HOW MUCH IS THIS BOAT WORTH NOW WITH NO ENGINE OR DRIVE?????????

Let me tell you,,,,, it was a nightmare...

I guess the only positive thing is at least it happened before I bought it
how hot did it get?
owner didnt go with you?
where was the water coming in from?

Glad you made it out finally!

See what I was saying last night about everything having to be mechanically perfect for me to get on the lake?

Let me get this straight.

The Baja overheated?

The Active through a rod?

The Baja through a rod?

The Baja sunk from the driveshaft bellows?

The Active sunk?

Bad day for sure. Its usually me who gets into scrapes like that.

Welcome to the wonderful world of performance boating!
