My thought exactly, unless I'm not understanding the OP's original post.

What a shame. It's a distinctive boat so hopefully one of us can spot it.

This summarizes it the best. Well said. I can't replace the time I've spent on the water, either alone or with my family, at any price. The boat earned it's price providing that. Anything beyond that...

I've got my boat and vehicles with Allstate and have been for years. They're very reasonable on price, as far as I'm concerned, for good coverage. I have an agreed value policy on my boat, though...

Does he plan on just keeping the boat tied to a dock and never going anywhere or is he planning on running the boat (especially in the ocean or offshore)? Basically, if he wants a boat to live on and...

Damn, I never thought of raccoons getting on the boat til I saw this thread. Just after reading it, I went down to my boat at the dock and find dirty raccoon prints all over the boat! In all the...

Spent the day waterskiing, tubing and swimming with the family yesterday. This morning I cleaned the whole boat before it got too hot. At my age (well into my 50's), my body is going to remind me for...

On larger boats (over 25' I believe) you're required to have a trash discharge plaque and an oil one. Those shouldn't be removed.

LouC has a good point regarding the fuel pump if it's the more modern electric one. I had a very similar issue about 5 years ago on my 96 (electric pump). After going through all the usual suspects...

Alpha drives have the impeller down in the drive. It pushes water up to the main water pump on the engine, which circulates it through the engine, manifolds, and out the exhaust. I've always operated...

Unfortunately I don't think I have any pictures of either (at least not digitally). The little one was on a 12' sears rowboat that I spent my entire days on every summer growing up. The V4 was on a...

I couldn't tell, did the big, black-hulled cruiser past the Tiki boat also burn? If so, I'm guessing well into the millions in total damage, between the boats, dock, and who-knows what else that we...

Exactly! I grew up with a little 2.5 Evinrude, then the family got a boat with the V4 65 hp monster (1965 engine). To me, that smell means time on the lake all these years later.

Looks just like the Furuno transducer under my boat that has depth, temperature and a speed wheel.

I have the HF Predator 8750. I've had zero issues with it, and absolutely no complaints after about 3 years or so. It's a little loud, but that's about the only downside I can think of, and for the...

This is a legitimate downside with I/O. On my prior one I had to have the engine pulled to change the oil pan. I combined it with a lot of other maintenance that was due like bellows, so the hit...

I disagree on the comment regarding automotive engines being eaten. My current boat has over 2500 hours in the Central and SWFL Gulf. It's all original except for manifolds. Its a 1996, original...

For me a stern drive was a requirement when I got the boat I have now. I had a stern drive sport boat that I ran the hell out of in the Gulf for years. It was almost flawless. I had to change the oil...

The carb you have is based on the old Rochester 2GC, which was, in my opinion, one of the most bulletproof, relaible carbs ever made. Out in the ocean, reliability and simplicity is what you want....

Nope. "Full market price" couldn't possibly replace it and the memories it holds for me. I'd have to get enough to pay cash for a major, brand new upgrade.
