This boat has great fixer-upper potential but was hoping for some forum feedback before considering purchase.
-1993 Mastercraft Prostar 205 cosmetically sound, 330 hours
-Engine and transmission pulled after owner failed to winterize
-boat seller says $2400 and I get the boat, transmission, and engine
-further indicates, "all you need is a small block for a 351 which'll cost $600-$800"
-I am not too mechanically sound but my neighbors love to wrench and would put days into it
I'd be a fool to think it would be a straightforward restore, but what is the likelihood that the thing could run for less than $5K total investment?
