Went to get the boat yesterday. Thought I had the block drained through the winter. I guess not. Every freeze plug was laying in the bilge and there is water in the oil. I think I could cry.

Sorry to hear that. Sounds like you'd better get to work to get that thing in order since you have a trip to make in a couple weeks....

05-07-2006, 10:38 AM

05-07-2006, 10:58 AM

Oh, $hit! Jeremy.... :cry: my guts are turning to jello for you man :( I feel so bad for you. WOW. that was like my worst fear all winter. I cant imagine knowing what your going through. This truly is a bummer my friend. Well, all I can say is I hope the damage is as minimal as possible, and its a speedy and inexpensive repair as possible. Hang in there my friend.

I had a buddy that had that happen years ago on a S+S. He lucked out with no damage, I hope yours is forgiving to you.

Move To The South!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :d

05-08-2006, 07:04 PM
That sucks man.

I hope that everything works out and your damage is non-existent or minimal.

05-08-2006, 07:16 PM
I cannot get my mind around a frozen motor due to where I live but that totally sucks! I remember just this feb you were posting pics of the boat in the barn with snow all around and us all kidding about the freezing temps..... now this? it aint funny at all.

05-08-2006, 08:55 PM
No that was my car in the barn. I would rather it have froze. It doesnt have an engine in it.

Sorry to here it J79. That is why my ship is in the garage and the car sits outside. I figure the boat will be around much longer. Maybe someone can get you some deals here on the site. A nice fire damaged boat of any kind may have the parts you need. Good luck and keep in touch! :(

As bad as it sucks. :mad: (trust me, it really sucks.) I am thinking maybe fuel injection, more HP, and more chrome. :) But I dont know yet. WIll have to see what works out.

05-08-2006, 09:31 PM
:cry: Hate to hear such such bad news. I feel for ya.

And a BLOWER? Keep it sane! Being an old timer I love my carbs! I can do what I want early and often and on the fly! Go basic then slap an old tunnel ram with dual quads on top! The engine hatch should be topped in billet and when closed the carbs (polished of course) will pop through the billet cap. Have fun! :D As bad as it sucks. :mad: (trust me, it really sucks.) I am thinking maybe fuel injection, more HP, and more chrome. :) But I dont know yet. WIll have to see what works out.

There was just an LQ9 engine on ebay....that would be SWEET :toast:

Probably wont ever happen but, kinda brings a small(very small) smile on a bad time

05-08-2006, 09:52 PM
You don't know the block's cracked for sure, hope for the best?
