Man, I must disagree. I hate to see a boat go down, but the cost to bring this back would put you hugely upside down on price, even if you got the boat for free. I own a woodie, and there's an old saying from Chris Smith from Chris Craft that goes, "you can get a wood boat for free, and still pay too much."

I think I would rent a car hauler from U-haul and put the boat and trailer on that before I would trust what sounds like a very sketchy trailer to make it that far.

This might not be a concours restoration project, and not a boat one would buy in hopes of flipping it for a profit, but this would be an inexpensive entry for someone to get into a MC assuming they are capable of doing the work themselves. In the immortal words of Dirty harry "A man's got to know his limitations".

Lets say you have a 81 or 82 S&S and the stringers are all bad. Looks to me like you could buy this and transfer all the good stuff from your hill to this hull and save a ton of money and time compared to repairing your rotted hull. Just a thought.

OMG! Its a RED metalflake boat! If that baby were in Mn or Wisconsin, it would be in my garage!
Looks like a 1:1 tho..., LOTS of nice parts there. What happened to the exhaust manifolds?

If it's an '84 it's probably not Metalflake..Unless it was a special order.

It's got a power slot tranny, has a reduction unit, so it's not a 1:1. Manifolds are gone. If no one takes it, I'll either part it or rebuild it in time.
