I know nothing yet about owning a boat or much about boats for that matter aside from piloting a few over the years and being pulled by one. New home with a lake, kind of figured why not buy a boat. Found this boat through word of mouth, it was never listed. 494 hours on the engine. The engine is a 305 EFI
All sounds completely logical to me.

One of my TT buddy's down here bought a 2001 MC 209 off someone on that lake last spring, pretty sure...

I don't remember, is that a private lake?

hey Jon - your boat looks very familiar! I changed over my interior and had done a lot of appearance refurb, if anything in my thread helps you down the road, cool:

Welcome to TeamTalk, BTW - lots of great guys here with WAY more answers than you probably have questions! But great to know they're here when you need them. And whatever you do refurb-wise, do us a solid and post (with pictures)! We all love to see 'em.

Thanks Jeffer, your refurbishing skills are much more advanced than mine. Your boat looks great, thanks for the post.
I pulled all the vinyl today, cleaned the bilge and fixed the bilge pump. Tomorrow is a carpet shampoo, then start peicing it back together. When that is done I need to polish the hull.
The radio mount is the only real thing throwing me at the moment. Think the original cutout is larger than replacement covers I can buy. Not sure how to install a new stereo and have it tv look right.

Rockman, that's a good idea, but maybe cut a piece of lexan or something as opposed to wood. You could always have it dipped, too, or paint it to match the dash, and make a new cutout that'd fit a marine radio cover.
And Jon, don't oversell my refurbishing skills! MOst of what I did was first-time crap. It's amazing what you can do when you're really into it!

Thank you for the responses and suggestions. I spent the weekend removing the seats and side panels. Soaped and pressure washed the carpet, cleaned the bilge, repaired the bilge pump. Boat already looks 100 times better. Purchased the stereo cover from Overton's that was listed in another post... the dimensions should fit perfect. This weekend I plan to add pop-up cleats put the vinyl back in, and polish the hull.
Then I need to and shop for a bimini top. No end in site yet, but I have hope.
