Talking Sooooo.... I bought a new boat

Well, last summer I got into my first boat which was a 1973 chrysler 16' open bow tri-hull boat. It was fun, wasnt fast but it allowed for lots of drinking on a lake for a summer. Well, I ran across a sweet deal on a new boat, so I sold the 73, and just went and bought this one tonight. Its a 19' 1989 Monterey with a 4.3L I/O motor, holds 9 people, and should be lots of fun. It needs some work on the outdrive so it needs a little work, but for the price I got it for, I stole it. Paid 650 bucks for this thing, WITH the trailer. The motor starts up and runs fine, all lights work, all accessories like the bilge, trim, blower, etc. All the guages work... EVERYTHING Here's some pictures:

Re: Sooooo.... I bought a new boat

That's probably the perfect time to buy a boat. When it's full of snow. Nice find.

I haven't been on a boat in years. My parents used to have a Johnson with an outboard 2-stroke 4-banger. Pretty awesome ski-boat. It would yank you clean up out of the water. They later bought an in/out 4-stroke 4-banger (3.0L, I think) Mercury. It would drag you a good bit before it stood you up. Much nicer boat, just underpowered.

Yeah the boat I had before was a 105hp outboard 4cyl... it did ok, it was old so it took a little effort to pull a skier up, and you couldnt have much weight in the back of the boat to allow it to plane out, but it did ok for what it was. I cant complain, i bought that boat for 400 bucks

Re: Sooooo.... I bought a new boat

awesome deal dude, boats are awesome! were thinking about selling ours, a 18ft Stingray, since we didnt use it at all last year, and once or twice the year before.

btw, you should get a cover for it.

Dude...awesome deal, if you come across another one of those let me know. Also, no fees anywhere around here where I go. Bring the boat to a good free lake and I'll break mine out.

Re: Sooooo.... I bought a new boat

I'm jealous! My favorite memory of last summer is when my fam rented a 19' ski boat for a day when we went camping up north. I can't wait to be able to own a boat some day, they're so much fun.

Congrats!
