    Ok here's my Skippy, I'm gonna go with a bracket and outboard, I'm so sick of working on this car engine. Shitty picture I'll take more later

    I am considering purchasing a 1991 Skipjack 26' with a yanmar Diesel and bravo III outdrive with 1,000 hours on it, but am concerned about the cost of repowering. anyone with recent experience on this type of refit that can give me a ballpark cost?

    thx,

    Does it not run? That's a pretty sweet setup, although I'd prefer a Volvo outdrive behind it.

    If you need a project, the pics look good and it's not an OMC.

    Yhea that's what's In it now , I think the problems are stemming from the fuel injection system the previous owner put in , capacitors, diods, relays, 5 knobs to adjust, bunch of elect. B.s.. I've got no problem adjusting a float or air fuel so maybe you've got me thinking about putting a carb and reg intake back on . Prob be fine.

    Kind of changing the subject here, but has anyone mounted the Adventure Marine 4100 fixed kicker mount on their Skipjack? I’m considering it, but might need to modify my trim tab hydraulic line location? The trim tab line and scupper outlet on my ‘84 - 24’ Open with Pilothouse modification, as well as floor level and various obstacles on the inside of the transom, kind of having leaning towards a custom made mount. Just purchased a new Yamaha 9.9 (about 115 lb) with tilt, and want to get it mounted.

    Looking for pictures of the Adventure Marine 4100 mounted on a Skipjack. Or, pics of other fixed mounts people have had success with. Wanting to go with the fixed mount for the new heavy Yami 9.9, as recommended by many.
    Considering the A.M. 4100.

    Looking for help from Skipjack 262 owners.. I am missing the rear shade piece. I have the the railing but no canvas.. If anyone can take a few up close pics of your shade attached to the rail and the arch, then I have an upholsterer that can sew it up, I tried to get the pattern from Skipjack, but no luck.. so the best I can do is get photos to reproduce.. that rear shade is the signature look for the 262, Nice to have when you need it.. thanks for the help

    Just joined the club. Scored a Skipjack 20 from BDer @SDFishingRob. Beautiful boat. Barely taking the time to go thru her and take down what I want to change up on her. I know my 1st order of business is too get trailer and a look at her bones. If those are good then I will move on to the next step which is the engine and out drive. I've read that the 165 HP Mercruiser is what was stock in her back in 71, but also read that a 250 HP is the standard nowadays I believe. 20181119_095226.jpg 20181119_094403.jpg 20181119_094420.jpg 20181119_095204.jpg Anyways here's a few pics, I'll post more in the builders thread and get ideas. Tight lines everyone!
