The Canadian one is an easy 200K of additional costs h second you get into it. 180 gallons fuel won’t take you very far, so start with new tanks and fuel system. Probably means a deck redo also.

the second you replace the engine you cascade transmission, shaft, propellor, raw water intake, possibly air vents also. It’s all doable but it’s going to double the cost of the boat when your done.

i didn’t even look at electronics on that one...

Agreed and sheíll still be slow no matter what you put into it for power.
