Hate to do this, but must. Two people strung me along for well over a year, and have not pulled the trigger. This is the boat. It is for sale less engine/pump.
The boat has been in enclosed storage for the past 2 years. The things that come with it are:
rails, engine mounts, bellhousing. fits bbc.
Alpha marine low profile intake. Several shoes and shims to fit. Intake was reset by MPD 5 years ago. The bottom was done by Jeff Bennett 12 years ago. Area around the intake was cleaned up by MPD when the intake was re-set. This intake has always worked just fine in this boat. also, trick ride plate with top secret et adjusters.
Steering is rack/pinion, all there and works fine. Shifter and shift cable also go with it.
Fairly new AMT droop that works well with this boat.
2 10 gallon aluminum gunnel tanks.
A complete interior that I had custom made in 1998. Two front seats and rear bench. Not a ton of room, but is functional and looks good.
2 fiberglass buckets, re-upholstered to match the boat by Main Stitch about 5 years ago. Brackets to mount the seats.
Bimini top.
tow cover. The cover may need a few repairs, and will most likely need to be modified with a different engine. Hard to say until something else is installed in it.
The trailer was completely refurbished by Enduro trailers in LHC a little over 5 years ago. paint on trailer is -ok-. it had several thousand more miles after the refurb.
New tires and wheels were installed on the trailer in early 2010. I would have no worries hooking this thing up and towing it 2000 miles to a race. I will take some pics of this stuff later in the week.
There are several other small pieces/parts that will go with the boat.
The boat will need a stringer mount pedal, engine, pump, driveshaft. I had changed it over to center steer in 2008. It is easy to change back.
The boat is not perfect. it does have a few battle dings. But it still looks good, and can run just as well as it ever did, and can handle whatever someone wants to put in it. It was a fun lake/river boat, and a great race boat. Won races on 9 different tracks, including Lake Catherine in 2010. Before NJBA cut the half second classes, ran a best of 9.49/112 with little effort.
p.s. and before anybody asks, no the ring does not come with it. that is a memory. buy it and go win one of your own...
