I only took in a little water.I dont think it would be a idea to ski behind it though.Chief will have his 209 in the water in no time .
Was justice served up on this?

I was hoping I'd get to water test it...Glad we didn't try

Hopefully will make some real progress today.

Engine going in today and hopefully fired up.

310HP Predator TBI.

You guys with overhead hoists lifts and access to shops or at least flat ground, don't know how good you got it.

Spent about 8 hrs jockeying boats and trying to get the engine swapped over because my cherry picker isn't big enough to reach the motor into the 209...Barely big enough to get it out of the holestar.

I got lucky and my buddy's mini X wasn't on a job site.



More on our progress later, I've had a long weekend.

It looks like you found a near perfect donor. There is no telling how many small parts you will end up using off that boat.

Quite a few parts would make nice upgrades, nuts, bolts screws and even the coaming pads look like they'll fit, After this weekend I am going to try and list it complete w/o the motor and transmission. It's very tempting at this point to make upgrades in hardware, but I'd rather sell as a whole to someone who thinks they can salvage it, so I don't have to deal with the stripping, storage, shipping and *****ing when things aren't as expected.

It is still a beautiful boat



...from the right angle
