Just an update, waiting on parts.....don't know if this terminology is correct but it looks like we will be filling in the transom and starting fresh back there. We weren't sure if the Arnesons were going to fill the holes of the Konrads and it looks like they won't. I'm not really all that disappointed because now we can mount them exactly where we want them. Found a bad suprise, motors are out, pressure tested the headers....found two leaking, not happy but glad we caught it. Getting ready to order some props if I don't find a used set here very very soon. Hering all the way on the props. The boat also had some paintwork done, in the one picture you can see a big white radio antenna, had that taken off, along with a gps antenna and a sirius antenna.....filled and painted. Had literally a few scratches and had all of those tended too as well.


I'm hoping the boat will be ready in a few months, considering keeping in rack storage in FL over the winter and flying down there to do some boating on the weekends. Thinking about the storage facility near Sanibel, Ft. Myers area or Miami.......not really too sure. Charlotte isn't that cold but it's still cold enough in winter to keep all but fisherman off the water.

so, the ones im looking at most have the HO in them. wouldnt want any less power. i have never been in one. heard cockpit is noticbly deeper, and a lot easier to drive with the hydraulic steering. just curious as to how they run? the cabin is what im looking for also. any input would be great! ill take call from owners if you guys are that bored. i boat on lake erie up in buffalo new york. 7168646285. names danny.

What a swift kick to the Jimmy. Funny that he always posts about how superior his product is but cannot deliver said product.
