Found a local 26' Olympic I'm considering for a project to convert to OB's. The boat needs a fuel tank before it could be ran. Sure I could rig a portable fuel tank for trial purposes but not sure I'm that committed to the hull design to justify the effort. I've never been on one...looking for someone that would take me for a quick spin, I'll buy the fuel/lunch/beer/whatever for your troubles. Bracket and OB power would be ideal but anything is a start.

Dave brabo converted one of obs and I thought he sold it to someone on here.

They are pretty shallow deadrise and they always seem to sit really low in the water in the stern but they have a good sized deck and rather nice cabin.

All Ways Fishing based out of LA Push runs one. He extended it to 30 feet a few years ago but ran it at 26 for years. Randy Lato...Super friendly guy and probably be worth picking his brain as he has 1000s of hours on it. It's an inboard.

Glad to hear a few charters still running them. I'll give him a shout to see where he's fishing out of with the rez shut down.
