I know a few that have been in the 80s, one that has been 100+ if I remember right but it was very worked over and (re)built light. I'll dig up some video later when I get home. It was pretty sweet. Not sure where the boat is now though.

Ok, ya got me there. With that, All thats missing to piece this bird together is pretty much a hydraulic helm and some hoses and then rig it all. I have a pretty good size pile of parts here. Just wish I had a garage to actually work on it in. Seems that every time I have been home from work its been crappy out.

Mine ran 84 with the previous owner (a friend) and a warmed up 200.
