Well it’s time. After 20 years of no repairs, it’s time.
Past year included:
- New trim motor
- Rebuild carb
- Trim ram rebuild
- 3rd set of trailer tires
- Some reupholster and repairs.
- 3rd set of plugs, wires, distributor cap and rotor
-bellows and gimble (professionally done)
I’m becoming very intimate with my boat now.

Only 3 sets of tires in 20 years is pretty good.

That is pretty impressive to have that many hours with relatively little work. Any major repairs?

No major repairs. Actually the boat was flawless it’s first 20 years. But the past year I had some issues. None major.
