I am just starting to poke around, would like to find a 16 that is all set up for a 4.3 Chevy V6 but needs a motor, really want something that is all assembled with the drive but has a bad engine. I know they are few and far between, but let me know.

Also would be interested in an 18 Classic 2+3 wit the same scenario, set up for a SBC but needs a motor.

Thanks, Tim

Still toying with idea of second boat, anyone has a boat for sale let me know.

Maybe something needs a motor or something mechanically sounds but needs cosmetics.

Needs to be 16 or maybe an 18

Not a V6, and WAY too much of a project I'm guessing.
