Shane, great find and price! Your kids are going to love it! Nothing like seeing an 'Ol Skippy brought back to life! I owned two and loved them both!

Thanks for all the comments on the boat. Busted out the polisher today. I just can't do the brown. I tried to but just cant. So stripped all the decals and have been buffing for the last 2 hours. Lots of work to do buffing still but I love the look with the brown gone. Pulled engine apart and found a cracked block.

On a side note... huge shout out to NASTYHABTS26!! He hooked me up with the boat in the last 2 pics. Donor boat, using the engine out of it. Runs like a cat with turpentine on its asshole!

Well its been a while but it's home finally. Shop did an amazing job and I couldn't believe the final price. So far I'm at 4200 total for everything in the boat including the boat, radar, engine rebuild and replacement, duo prop complete rebuild, new shift cables, new shift control, fuel tank cleaning,wiring, etc. Happy as hell with how it's looking. I still have a bunch of smaller stuff to tackle like buffing the starboard side of the hull, painting the trailer, small cosmetic shit inside but she is running and ready to kill right now.

Nice Skippy! You scored. Who did your drive work? What did they do? What did it cost?

Thanks! Allen marine in pomona did it. They replaced all bellows, 2 bearings, shift cones, shift cables, replaced the shift assy where the shift cable attaches, replaced the raw water pump assy with a complete new one, rebuilt the trim motor, rebuilt the engine for me, did wiring, new exhaust manifolds and risers, grand total was 3025 from the shop.

Bra- fuckin-vo!! Awesome to see rebuilds. Wait I thought this was suppose to take a yr? Keep us updated!
Thanks!! And I was lucky enough to be served with a divorce and somehow ended up with keeping my kids full time so I decided since she wasn't here to bitch about it, I might as well get it done so I can take the boys out fishing more since I got lucky and have them full time.

Question on the fuel tank replacement. Aluminum or stainless steel? If aluminum did they paint the tank prior to installation? Foamed in? My 25' SJ in Mexico weeping fuel. Need to look at possible alternatives.
Thanks
