Dropped in my driveway last night straight from Halifax via uShip!
Bought her site unseen. Gambled. First impression? Very pleased with the hull condition. Boat is clean with near zero boo boos. Very happy. Big 23’!
Motor is a 2008 f250. Jury is out on the motor. I had it checked out prior to purchase but that means little to me.
Prior to purchase:
- new trim tab pump
- new fuel tank filler hose. (Yes I’m worried about tank)
- replaced through hull scuppers, I’m adding ping pong ball scuppers

Console - how on earth do you work inside of it!!!! I think I need a small child to crawl in there. Seriously, not sure at all how to work on the the wiring etc. given there is no way for me to get to the back of the console!

more to come.

You need to weigh under 150lbs to fit into the console. Otherwise, cut a bigger access and install a bigger hatch on the port-side of he console to allow bigger bellies into the electrical connections.

gman1001, here is what I did to solve the access problem for wiring in the console , added some storage at the same time. Hope this helps . I have lots of other mods and upgrades.
