What are the pros and cons? Is this something worth putting into a Garvey already set up for inboard? Speed is not an issue, longevity and economy are priority.
There's been plenty Garvey's dredging crabs and raking clams there before me, I guess if you wanted to get technical Sandy Hook Bay but when you grow up on it its all the "Bay".
can you find a trans for that motor?
a couple of years ago I was looking for a trans for a 353 and could not find one anywhere.
the engines are so old now that no manufacturers are making a trans to fit an old style Detroit. this is just what I found, hope you have better luck
yeah i've been there clamming, that's why i know, and a guy i knew sunk, and died in a 22 foot garvey coming in from clamming there.
Every couple years someone goes down out there same as any other fishery. Not for nothing but quite a few of those guys don't exactly take care of their boats as much as they take care of their "habits". Not saying every clammer out there is that way but a lot of the guys run boats I wouldn't run to the dumps! If you take care of your equipment than it takes care of you.
