Dang, you been hanging with Moses again? What a freakin' mess!

No wonder it may need a new engine and transmission, the throttle lever is wide open in reverse!

Am I way off here?
Yeah, by the time you're said and done you'll be into it for double that. Ask me about the time I redid a jeep CJ....

I've never seen a boat before that looks like it went off roading. I hope it goes to a good home.

That's exactly right. That is usually how my projects go when I am going to save some money. But somehow I am a sucker everytime. I was even looking at that tub and thinking "what if".

Actually that boat is in about as good of shape as my boat was when I got it. "IF" you can do most of the work yourself and you take the time to re-work and not buy new parts on the boat and salvage what ever you can you can get it back to running pretty cheap. It took me roughly 3 months and alot of tiresome "what could it be" hours to figure out all the little problems with my boat but it is running and I have not had a single problem with it to date. I have about $2500 in my 1989 Mastercraft 190 and am ready for summer to be here so I can log some more hours on it !!!! By the way mine was completely flooded. Water up to the dash but luckily not above the carberator.

This FL is murder on any interior if not covered, I'm guessing there's no cover either?
Add another 300 bucks ...

What (ballpark) did it cost you to get your boat back to running order?
