    Instead of it saying HELL YEAH on the side, it would be more apropos if it said HELL NO and ultimately advised him to walk away. I said if you buy it, expect nothing but work, work and more work. It seems that prediction was correct but I never would have thought that it was a black boat from the pics I saw. Let's hope the wife did not want a blue boat.

    On a positive note, what you have done is incredible and I applaud you. Learning to surf behind it has to be the icing on the cake. Great job!

And yes learning to surf behind it was the highlight of my summer. I’m just pumped to have a “brand new boat” for next summer. I only ever had sterndrive boats before this. I could never go back!

    I've never seen a valve seat that bad!!! OMG. If you still have the engine out of her can you tell me what the dimension is between the trans mounts and the same for the engine mounts side to side? What is the distance between the stringers in the engine room and in the midsection? thanks Chris

    Believe it or not those seats cleaned up! I walked into the machine shop with the heads disassembled and bead blasted. He cut them on the spot for 150 bucks and gave me freshly ground used valves. Needless to say that man has my engine now to rebuild the bottom end. The boat is at a detail shop now being buffed inside and out and getting ceramic pro installed. Once itís back I can measure for you. I canít measure the trans mounts, I had to cut them to get on the bolts that go in the trans. I got a used set being powder coated now. I still need a set of engine mounts if anyone has a set?

    I posted these in my v drive rebuild post, but I figured Iíd throw them here as well. Transmission should be going together next week. The hull is being buffed as we speak and the ceramic coat will be applied over the weekend. Iím letting him keep it for a few days after to put outside for all the people that told him he would never get that finish to come back to life.
