I picked it up in Tucson back in June. It was last registered 15 years ago. From the rust on the trailer, it must have been near salt water for quite some time.Cool boat. If you bought it in RP, I've seen it out on the water in the past. Seemed to handle the slop real well. There is a core group out there that has these boats and swears by them. But due to their age, a lot of work involved in getting them and keeping them seaworthy.
You just MIGHT want to keep that kicker bracket in the meantime!! Hahahaha! The new 4 strokes aren't cheap, but they are definitely the way to go. Not sure how much weight that transom will support, but personally, I'd look at a pair of Yamaha inline 4 150's. If you're going to fish it offshore, twins provide a level of safety and security that a single anything can't.It has a 200HP Johnson 2 stroke that runs good. Will have to do until can upgrade to a 4 strike.
