Something fishy about that SunSport. Composite boats are usually in the $10k-$13k range, maybe a bit less but $6k is very cheap. Maybe a scam. Maybe some damage not disclosed. If it has freeze damage...

Looks good, clean tight fit. Appears more clear than the glass in the pics, hopefully it stays that way. I need to make a new side vent/wing window for mine and may try this. Mine is flat so should...

$10k is plenty to get an inboard. SN2001 are about half that. Older Supra in the $5k-$10k range depending on model and open/closed bow. Occasionally SNOB or Sport Nautique pop up around $10k. Various...

$20-$30 per rider is appropriate for a typical day of 3-4 sets each. If you're not riding then I don't expect anything. I don't require money but most either ask how much for gas or get the idea...

That's a solid $2500 truck, maybe up to $3500 for the right person. The problem is it's 2wd. If 4x4 you could double that price easily with a price ceiling in the $10k-$12k range for a 4x4 manual...

Never worried about theft when I have the boat at the lake house. Granted it only stays in the water when I'm on vacation so I'm usually there or not away for long, and the lake doesn't have a huge...

I bolted a block of PTFE maybe 3/4" or 1" thick to the bottom of my prop guard. Used 3 allen head bolts countersunk into the PTFE to attach. Yes it wears when it drags but load is more evenly...

Late to the party but my thoughts are if you need to borrow money for it you clearly can't afford it. You already have car loans from the sounds of it, so you're financing luxury you cant' afford...

I redid the whole brake system on my trailer last year along with wheel bearings and so forth. Very simple. It's the same system as any car. I am not sure what that fitting in your picture is. What...

I was referring to inboard and I/O runabouts. I'm used to water freezing pretty solid on top which would damage boats and docks. I know people with cruisers and some haul out for winter others leave...

Grind and weld if you want a quick hack to get on the water, may work may not but nothing to lose but a little time. Personally for a boat like that I'd be looking for a running 350 and just swap...

Not sure how steep the ramps you use are but looks like you're too deep. As others have said the guides should be on the rub rail with that style trailer. Try putting the trailer a little shallower...

Wow. I've never heard of leaving small boats in the water over the winter. It does look like most are on lifts though. I assume this is typical in TN? Why would trailer boats not be pulled and stored...

IMO if you're worried about resale just sell the boat now and get what you'd be happy with long term then do whatever you want to it.

From a buyer perspective I like hard tanks, but sacks are...

Haven't heard 40*, usually here it's around freezing or a bit below they don't want to pour. As it cures it will create heat so that gives you some wiggle room on temp. Not sure how cold it gets down...

I'd suspect it performs better than a 350 Chevy but a far cry from a 454/496 or 460. After a few years when things may break repairs will be more expensive and time consuming than a standard big...

Ugh, my IDI is averaging 12.8 MPG. Can't wait to swap in a ZF5 and knock cruise RPM down to ~2000 at 75... Now it's over 3000 RPM at 75. At slow speeds it's knocking on 20 MPG. Screaming along on the...
