If the engine is fresh water cooled, why do they need to flush it? It is fresh water cooled, right? That's what that tank at the front of the engine with the radiator cap on it is, right???

Yeah, see I didn't think it was as old as 2000 either... But that's what they told me. I didn't go investigate the Vin or anything. I'm not up on the differences from year to year, so I couldn't argue.

For some reason, I can't find the picture I took of the Teak Platform... Ever wonder what a platform looks like that has been in salt water for a few years without any care whatsoever... It was BAD! made me feel a little better about mine.

Mmmmm, salty. Agree with Rod, 03 or 04 given the rudder and the "Predator".

To me, this forum is about love of inboard boats. It is about the sharing of information and, on a good day, some humor. It is not about post count, brand of boat, or any other superfluous labels that lend themselves to a false sense of superiority. Please, respect one another, try to pass on accurate information, and keep your eye on the ball.

Yes but the intake water still circulates and cools off the Exhaust Manifold and such I believe... So that'll rust and fall off shortly I would assume.

Here's a close-up of the rudder if that helps.

I think 04 was the last year of the TBI predator. 02s that weren't TT boats, had the foiled rudder. So 03 or 04.

I went there is 99 and they had 95 PS at the time. The condition those boats were in was horrible. It looked stolen and abandoned.
