Boat Owner Again!!
« on: February 14, 2019, 05:46:46 pm »
Hi All, hear are a couple of pics of my new (*old 😊) boat.  Its a yellow topped HH V17L.  It is a 1986 hull with a 1984 185HP Evinrude V6 strapped to the back to propel me to space ha ha. The whole thing is in remarkably good condition given its age.

Like any boat owner I already have some projects in mind being (in this order);
-   Aux motor and bracket not that I dont trust a 34 year old Evinrude ha ha
-   Drill wood at top of transom (good nick but I can only store outside) and just behind fuel tank (shoddy DIY job with the tank) and seal with norseal or west.  Overall the hull and transome are excellent but best to get on top of it
-   Fix the custom made 110L fuel tank so that I can get off the little AUX tanks;
-   Sounder.  Thinking Lowrance HDS 7 or Elite TI2 9
-    New motor I would love to hear any advice from people that have owned these hulls.  I would love to have a 90hp e-tec for the overall cost savings on fuel and initial purchase price but am worried that might not be enough grunt  boring1.
-   Perspex panel in the hull to scope out dive sites
