Out of the water and ready for surgery. If the mechanic doesn't start by Saturday, I am going to start de-rigging the existing engines.

Very Pretty boat. Black Watch always stand out with classic solid looks. Is that bottom paint? Looks shiny.

yes, it is bottom painted. May be the lighting that's shining?

Wow, beautiful boat! She should scoot right along with the D4s. Out of curiosity, how did you find her? Listed somewhere or word of mouth? My impression is that a lot of refurbished classic boats sell better through non-traditional means vs. just throwing them on yachtworld.

Don't be shy about posting lots more pics of the rig and the repower!

What a great boat. We had a 1990 that we built new - went to the factory in Portsmouth regularly. Ours had Chrysler 318s in it, it went pretty good, we put 1100 hours on her before selling to someone here in NY. Ours was Navy blue, had a hardtop, center rigger, teak covering boards, etc. It was a nice boat, we took that thing everywhere. Best of luck with her!

There were reportedly few 26's built in 1990 with the Chryslers. Chance it's the same boat ?

Could be. Ours was rigged like yours. Sold to a gentlemen here on Long Island in Oakdale around 2000 or so when my folks moved off the water. I have the hull ID somewhere.

Rybo... trailer it to my house before you put the new engines in and we’ll add another 4ft to her rear end 😆

I like my teak covering boards to be Palm Beach naked. Much prettier to me.

Have a buyer for those Chryslers yet? They'd probably mate well with the Mercruiser drives on the back of my Stamas.
