anyone here have an interest in a 1976 Century Arabian 17'. I own the boat but it has been at a friends house for a few years.

The boat is sound at least it was ...no rot etc. It will need an interior and some motor work it sounds like. I suspect a blown head gasket. It has a 351C with closed cooling. ...good trailer too.

P.M. if interested.

Jay, the Keels/Wheels guys LOVE those boats. Make sure you have pics/info sheets etc, and I'll spread it around the event this year...
