Dude...that's brilliant! I think that's a great move buying that boat. Long trip, but sure to be worth it.

I bet you a hundred bucks, he is trying to figure out how strong plastic and duck tape will be so he can take it out for a ski ride!

Very smart move! Tons of parts from that boat and looked well kept. Trailer and parts you can sell will do a good job of defraying the costs. With as many parts on the original boat missing or suspect, it could have been very expensive to get everything running again.

That was such a crap event for the original owner... nice to see it went to save another MC.

I used a piece of aluminun coil and shrink wrap tape over the hole .
I had to pulled off my lift and and drove the boat about 1.5 miles to the launch and put it on the trailer!
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 .
