It looks like good deal. But to get rid of a GT for a boat? I don't know about that. :D

 

Has it been redone? Been along time since I've seen a boat that old with that glossy of a finish on it.

not sure i still have my big jd which does all the work i havent touched the cub since april when i put it out back. that or the boat was stored inside and always waxed cause i barely see a water line. also looking at the pic closely it might have been raining when the pic was taken

Backwoods, before I made a trade I would take the boat to a lake and take it for a spin, not just a few min., but a good while out on the lake. Take it from me I wish I had done that with one of the boats I bought. Spent a lot of time cleaning and making it ready for the water after I bought it only to find that it had a bad MOTOR! Then after getting the motor running half way the steering cble broke and left us stranded on the lake. Thank goodness for a homeowner who brought us out some oars so we could get back to shore. Just part of the story. It looks good but you want to make sure it is water ready. No leaks, engine runs good(boat mech. told me next time take the boat out for a real shakedown run before committing to it). I did this on the second boat I bought and we found some problems where the PO didn't even know was there. He knocked enough off so that we got the boat and all fixed for what he was asking fo the boat. Personally I don't get rid of my GTs. Except for the one I gave my BIL.. JM2CW. Thanks. Roger.

:smilewink:  :smilewink: Great isn't it!!!!!!

I own a marina. :thumbs:

 

My advice. Stay away from that Chrysler. Not good motors to start with, and nearly

impossible to find parts for nowadays.

 

 

Edit.

Let me put it a bit stronger.

You couldn't pay me to own a Chrysler OB motor.

Backwoods, please heed Will's advice.  He makes his living with boats, so he knows his stuff!   He tells it straight up.  :thumbs:

A boat is a "hole in the water to pour money into"

 

Can the boat mow the yard, push snow, till the garden and be usable 12 months a year?

 

The 2 happiest days of a boat owners life..."The day he bought it, and the day he sold kit"!

 

Am I making myself clear?
