Bought this boat and was in rather rough shape. Everything has been redone or gone thru except the motor. Rotted floor, water soaked foam and mush wood, all had to be removed to bare hull. Having never done this before was a challenge in itself, but it turned out better than I imagined. I decided to cosmetically upgrade the look of the motor with billet pulleys and a paint job along with new hoses and belts. I never wanted a red boat, but it has grown on me thus I named it Ruby The boat runs great and gets lots of looks.
