Nice find.  Now if I could find something like that in about 16'  I'd be happy.   Greg

So, when are you going to start working on it?  I hope to be able to take mine to the river in a week or so and set the timing and do the CAM break in.  Then as far as the running gear goes I should be fixed.

yea it did look like shit=it had been sitting for 6 yrs uncovered. it originally came from florida

hull is in fine shape and with allittle elbow work the paint i think will be ok

and to answer gregs question, this will have to wait as i have my other southwind apart as i am doing a ride plate setup on it and switching to a new split bowl pump and maybe a pump setback. but i will be ready by may 1st
one way or the other
