Good luck...can't wait to see the on going pics...the ski pylon show the waterline....

Can't imagine someone having something that cost that much and not give a flyin'....you know what.

ooo...just realized - waterline over tranny... that could be a real problem too.... dang... did you get from original owner?
Was the predator motor around in 95-96? I was thinking it was a sportstar or skier (I have the predator in my '01 skier).

Either way, good luck with the rebuild!

Holy schitt!
Looks like a 95-97 PS, but yeah, thought the Predator was later model.
No matter anyway, you're buying a hull and a tower that needs to be gutted, completely.
Not sure what MC's go for over there, but that boat is worth the used price of the tower only.........not even that really.
That boat in the US is a $13-14k boat ...........spotless with a LT-1, ND tower and tandem trailer to boot.
I wouldn't touch it unless they were paying you at least $5k to haul it away, seriously.
Good luck with the "project."

Oh, at least it has closed cooling, so no salt water damage! hahaha

Hi all

It is a 96 age stamped hull .
The original owner disappeared about 6 years ago and left with some who knows nothing about boats ,hence why it has been not looked after .

Not sure about the options for the correct engine on this ,I have no reason to think it is not correct engine , hopefully some one can advise , hull id MBCUSAT9F96

The gearbox has been fully submerged in water however I have checked the oil and it looks good with no signs of water , same for the engine oil.

Will be a few weeks before I know if the deal has come off , well looking forward to this little project .


Will keep you all posted .

Kevin

Another picture ,
I think the fuel tank has also been filled with water hence why the fuel has come out of the breather .

Wow. Can't wait to see her brought back to life. Should be a very time consuming project, but worth it in the end. Just a thought, but check around the edges of the floor for soft spots since there was so much water in there. The foam may have separated from the floor and may still be holding water.

water under trans fluid....motor might have survived...starter - toast...flywheel and damper plate toast....fuel pump probably toast.

The owner disappeared? - sounds like a great story....

96...okay - that's a repower...not cared for...

can't wait to see her running.

....and you got a barefoot boom in the deal. The value of the boat just went up!

Good luck with the project.

That's what I was thinking!

There is a thread on here from tealchevy about his salvaged rebuild. Will definitely be a thread you should read. Lots of good information.
