Looks great. I can only imagine how many hours went into that transformation. Speaking of that, I bet there are about 200 more pictures of the process somewhere... Did you repower?

Planning on May of next year to get it up there. Was rushed to get everything done and up there this summer so decided to wait and have the winter here to get it all done.

Its amazing what a difference the windows make on these boats and howmany different arrangements there are. Look at the 3 boats posted here and see what I mean.

This boat looks like a great boat to fish on although I think the roof is sagging on aft corner/stbd side from lack of support.

They often look a little tall for the length but its part of what I like about it. Mine is def a cruiser but has a little workboat look to it.

Great platform to do so. I have sagged a little in the last 30 years too :)

That is the gas powered from Cape Cod area (scituate)correct?

Would love to know what motor/transmission/propeller you are running and what performance numbers you're getting.

That's a great color on the boat too.

Yes it is, bought and motored it home, 2009 Crusader 6.0 with matching transmission, 1:1 ratio, left hand screw 20x19 four blade. I've been tracking fuel use and its doing pretty well, I've run it every weekend since I bought it, its all in the RPM management. I think at last count it was 6gph and that includes some hard running from Scitaute, MA to Yarmouth, ME. Its not using much cruising around Casco Bay.
