Hello

Please take a moment to announce your arrival - tell us a little about yourself - if we had Swag Bags we'd give you one, but we don't so we'll just say Hello!!

Glad to be aboard.....
I just bought a 1962 OMC 17 Deluxe that has been in a barn stored since 1972....It is in amazing condition....original paddles, ladder, fire extinguisher, anchor, manuals...and so much more....the gel coat is fantastic and no spider webbing!.....dash and steering wheel like new....has the frame for Bimini top.....the original outdrive and v4 engine are shot so will upgrade all of the driveline.....
has the original OMC trailer also.......the stern lights are the best I have ever seen.....and has an xtra set with the boat...seats are in fantasic condition for a 56 year old boat
I look forward to posting my refurb of the boat and read all the pages that others have done restoring theirs....
bought the boat off a facebook trihull page from Wisconsin and just trailered it home to Ontario Canada this past weekend.....2200km total....but was such a great deal on something that I have wanted for sooooo long.....paid $600 total so I am very pleased with it!....
Any info you can share I appreciate it
cheers for now

since the original engine was shot, and underpowered happened upon a deal on a 305OMC v8 and outdrive that was supposed to have been rebuilt......is this to heavy of a setup for this boat?.....I have seen others modified with V8 and was hoping it was good choice?
