Has been killing me!! lolol

You know I like to get a boat the way I want it and this old Pontoon has been a challenge for sure!

So I took it into the shop and had a new steering cable put in as well as had the carbs rebuilt and some power packs and stuff as well as a complete tune up! :Lower unit and all that jazz.

Well that was about $1600 buckaroos!!
Then I decided to rewire the whole thing as some arse clown decided to jerry rig it before me.
Dropped another $300 in her with that!


Added a Hummingbird 561 and a New Radio with 4 speakers! Another $376 bucks!! lol

2 new batteries and boxes! A new bilge to pump water to my live well!! Try out another $300.00!!

Heck!! I aint even put her in the water yet!!

Rented a lift from sunbelt and built a new transom and installed it as well!!! Another $140.00!!!

Heck!! I paid $3500 for the dang thing and I have put another $2800.00 in her!!!

I swear I am a sucker for punishment!! But I will bet you she is refurbed my way and After spending the last 2 days with a neighbor kid!! She sure is coming along!!!!

I really do enjoy refurbing these boats. I think I may have missed my calling!! lol

Pics soon!!

You know that BOAT stands for Bank On Another Thousand. Well in your case 3 thousand 5oo. Good luck with it. In the long run it will be just like you want it.
