Saw this at the dump today. Would have been a fun winter project but my wife would have divorced me. Enjoy.

If you want the job done right......do it yourself.

A better winter project would be work 4 hours every night at a convenience store.

I need those wheels for my trailer! haha. I have that style 13 on my trailer. I can't find any matching ones for it.

Actually that engine has made its into a few jeeps. Pretty cool that a mericruiser 150 is a pseudo upgrade for a Jeep 2.5

I give you credit for walking away....too many ways to justify it:
-neglected, but doesn't look that bad..
-fiberglass, "easy(er)" maintenance
-modern classic looks, only needs a stainless horn and maybe a spotlight on the foredeck
-its a coupe!
-Mercury power, great support, parts aren't a problem

I hate when projects call me like that... That is how I wound up w/ a Century Resorter "winter project".

What make is that? I cant read it from the pic.

I'm with Shannow, grab it.

Walk away and consider yourself fortunate. The biggest problem with old boats is getting windshields. The engine might have a tiny bit of value if it ran ok, or for parts. Unclear what the drive system was. Everything else is junk.

Boat stands for Bust Out Another Thousand. My 2007 Lund is enough to keep busy with maintenance without trying to restore something like that old wreck. Run away FAST.
