minor issuses.had new motor and trans installed. but nothing worked right guy wouln't fix it till all money was paid( i paid a third up front). he has called all boatyard around me and told them not to do work for me till he is paid. got the motor running well by sneaking in to a boat yard when the person in charge wasn't there.(timing was way off). but there is still a issue with shaft or cutless bearing. may be simple. just a catch 22 can't pay him his money, and sue him later if i can't fish. can't fish with a boat that doesn"t run well. don't want to hurt anything. i all ready have 16,000 in a simple gas install. would be a great deal for someone that could do the work themselves.
hate to say it but the first one was a better boat. had less room because of the pleasure boat top, but the motor was all forward of the bulk head. i don't know why but it seemed to sit in the water better. this ones not bad though.they are great small boats.
Oh ok Charlie now I know. You bought the Shelby Lynn the BHM with Volvo 71, then the Colby Joseph AJ. 350 gasser right ?. Or did you buy both of Randy's AJ's ? Either way I didn't build the BHm just fished her for a couple of years. I did build the AJ's and Randy helped me.
