    I figured I would post this for the hard core guy with a good imagination. It seems as if someone is always chopping one up to make a low buck work boat.

    You may have to be careful with that one. Not everyone knows what an Ice shanty is.

    They dock like shit. I say that knowing full well since I learned on one. If you can dock one of them everything else is easy.

    In the 90's I had a '76 with twins and it was a great boat. 318 Chryslers with V drives lol but the could not be stopped. Had it for 5 years and couldn't sell it so I gave it to a friend in exchange for free coffee/egg sandwiches at his deli for 1 year. I was the winner in that deal for sure!!

    Honestly it had a lot of space for a 28 and huge cockpit. All we needed to party and fish anyway. V berth worked well too :)

    Twin 318s would be a 32 if it was a 28 it would probably have a 35 knot+ cruise :eek:

    She's just begging to become a working girl! ;) We have a 32 foot version near us that someone turned into a center console and literally built a hot tub in the deck. o_O

    It was a 28. Cruise was 20 mph and had it at wot once and it was 37 mph. Was sure the bottom was going to just fall out tho. 35 yr old v drives held together somehow.

    Buddy still has it but sank it on land last winter...

    318 was a great engine.

    I can remove the Light, custom made chart shade and Diamond willow shank and get her running in 1/2 hour. :)

    So many crazy responses. She has potential for the right person. Just gotta do the work and keep things simple. It sure isn't a flip job for cash.

    I've seen this boat making rounds on the forums. It's a gasser and that all I know besides it turns over but doesn't start. All hearsay of course.
