Purchased in 1989 from Tigard, Oregon. Original engine was a 85hp. Continental with Kermath Marine accessories.

Installed a 318 Chrysler Marine engine and trans w/cooler 1-1, new engine cover & dual exhaust. New upholstery by Bob Wilson, Tacoma WA.

 

Found the 318 hp was too heavy and replaced it with a complete O.M.C unit 305 Chevrolet, fresh water cooled, electronic ignition, direct drive water pump & 100 amp alternator in 2003.
