She lives again!

The old girl was getting very tired looking, gell coat cracks all along deck from previous owner hitting a dock, holes cut out of the engine hatch by me to make room for raised x-dim, excessive fading on original gel that would not match, big hole in the old fuel tank, old wiring, etc.....

Ok, now all cracks repaired, engine hatch customized and gelled to match, 40 gallon tank with 1/4" alum, new throttle, steering, PPI seats (those are real quality) carpet, engine rebuild with new heads, solid cam (I just like the sound)...even completely redid the trailer (except wheels and tires - soon to be replaced).

Thanks to Jeff Bozzy at Land and Sea Detailing in Orlando for great work and patience. (almost had to pry the boat from him after so many months). I'll post some pictures of before/after below. Kent

Not TRS. That is a Bravo 1 outdrive. It originally had the Volvo 280T. I changed that several years ago.
