I picked up a 87 Bass buggy pontoon boat. It's been sitting a couple years. Was running when parked. Just looking for a mechanic to check it out, service and clean carbs. Boat is located at Lost Lake and I would prefer to not tow it very fare. Thanks Andrew

Well no help with the shop recommendations. So I called a few. Two in Parker one will not touch outboards and the other one said they will call back never did. As for Blythe talk to Roger at Blythe Marine Service. He said bring it down I know the engine well and have parts in stock. Here's a what I got for $800 hopefully just service and carpet. I will be fishing and grilling this year. Time to make the jet boat faster.

Just picked up the pontoon Roger's 2 week estimate turned into 6 weeks. So $1300 later, I got a long list of replaced and rebuilt items. He water tested and said it's ready to go. Not to bad total $2300 for a good running 20' pontoon boat. Now the fun begins how do I drive this thing. I've only had Jets and 1 v-drive.
