Re: Project boats

The 2000 Bayliner really wasnt a project boat but I forgot to put a heat lamp in the motor well when it got below 30 and it cracked the block.So I ended up buying a new long block 4.3 with a warranty for her.Son still wants to keep her but I bought her to sell.

The good:Bought her from a guy that needed attorney money QUICK so I had a margin for profit.Boat ran decent and had a bow cover,bimini and the original top also.Hull was solid and no damage to gelcoat.Boat has a new motor with a 1 year warranty and runs strong and fast!

The bad:Owner left a LOT of garbage in the boat.She needed power washed and a lot of waxing.Fabric on the sun lounge and bench should be redone to look new and speakers to the radio/cd player are on their way out.Boat sucks for fishing.Its great if your young and single to hit tiki bars or ski but not a fishing boat at all.

The ugly:The block cost me 2k and my labor.I have three boats sitting in my yard I have to move every 5-7 days when I mow!
