Yes , so far she is a keeper . One engine runs fantastic . the other is pulled . It was locked up tight . It will be rebuilt . Then I will do a small renovation of the interior .. i will post progress.

Man thats a steal. What are the performance numbers on something like that? Did you get it at a Police auction? And laslty..... Did it come with the loud speaker? That would have been a deal breaker for me..... And having the lights on it would be pretty cool. ha ha

Both engines are now back in the boat . i had them removed so i can install two replacement Bravo II transom assemblies . The outdrives are also back on the boat including props . Next week I will have the Diesel Guy start them . The stuck motor is now unstuck .

Its looking good and comfortable and also seems to be in perfect condition. Its best for a medium family to travel and enjoy the sea shores.

Thats my long term plan of a boat. One day I plan to get a boat like that, add a tower and stay in the Bahamas as long as I possibly can.......Thats my dream for retirement.

Update > The transom assemblies were shot , I found two replacements with low hours for 3,000.00 . Mike at Riverview Marine in Catskill did a fantastic job pulling both engines, replacing assemblies ,installing the Out drives ,and re installing both engines . Engines would not start. virtually zero compression from sitting for four years !!. Enlisted a hobbyist diesel Tractor Farmer guy . He hit them both with 24 volts . They started and now run fantastic. Boat is in the water as of yesterday . This Boat is proving to be one Power Monster
