I bought a boat!

As I was browsing craigslist the other day I came across a 1973 Chrylser silverline 16' open bow boat with a bunch of extra goodies (water ski's, tube, ski ropes, trailer, etc etc) for 700 bucks. I emailed the guy and asked him what is bottom dollar would be, and he emailed me back saying 450 bucks and I can take it home

I talked to one of my roomates and we both went 50/50 on the thing, so now we have a freakin boat just in time for the 4th of july and Ive put about 15 hours into restoring the thing. When we got it, the floor was pretty much rotted out, so we riipped it up and put new flooring down with some indoor/outdoor carpeting that looks really nice. Remounted the two front seats which are in great condition, cleaned the bench seating in the bow and stern which we'll eventually re-upolster because of a years worth of sun damage. They have some cracks in them, but they're usable for a little while before we get the time to redo all that.

Last night at about midnight me and my roomate went to wal-mart, bought a 25 dollar car radio/casette player and installed it. So now we have radio for out on the water, and new carpeting. Right now we're staining the wood trim areas to bring it back to life a little bit, but besides that the boat is in overall great condition for a 33 year old boat.

Just thought Id share, Ive been having fun workin on that thing, thats why I havnt really been here the last couple of days. Fired her up this morning and she ran great, so now we just need to get it on the water. Ill get some pictures sometime, but I want to clean it up first.

You'll love it man, just be sure to keep it running during the off season or you'll end up like I had to do and rebuild the engine each year before summer lol.

Re: I bought a boat!

w00t sounds like our family's first boat. a Chrysler with the 115hp outboard. that was a fun boat, the hydraulics on the motor lift didnt work, so when docking/beaching, i was the one to reach back and undo the latch to tilt it up.

youre gonna have hella fun. im guessing you got the isuzu or whatever after all to tow it?

See Zim, you could have ended world hunger, or at least made 11,250 kids have strangely colored tongues (unless of course they get a cherry one, because those just enhance the tongue's natural colors).

Re: I bought a boat!

Took the boat out the past couple days... it runs great. The first day right as we were heading into the marina we blew a spark plug out of the head, but I retapped it and put a sleeve in there so its all good now. Last night we were out on the thing until 1 AM, it was pretty fun. Theres absolutely no one out there that late though. This things so fun, I absolutely love getting out on the water.
