cool boat, excellent rebuild - what a master, I wonder about the visibility underway.
I have redone one and put pair of 3.0L Mercury unlined 4 and like it. Less weight, fuel efficient and cheap to maintain and find parts for. Boat weights under 5000 lbs.Well I finally got my wish and bought a 25 Bertram S/F V Drive. She was a Mass. boat that saw great care and not much use. She was in covered storage in the off season for the last 20 years. Her name is CAVU. Maybe some of you up north may have seen her.
I am in the process of a total restoration,engines,wiring,fuel tanks and AWLGRIP. The 318s are original and running but tough to get parts for. So I sold them and a pair of 350s will be going in.
