Default Boat pics.. or in my case.. HULK pics

Here is a the skinny.. 1978 Grady White, repowering with Volvo D3-190 DPS turbo diesel setup, built for fishing and open water speed and durability. Main goal... NEVER SINK, and non-stop interisland runs.

Day 1 the boat came home.. the gorgious model posing with it is my "pup" Sadie. 1/4 lab, 3/4 Pudle Pointer.. also known as mutt! LOL She's a sharp cookie though.



The powerplant


Demolition pics




New trailer with custom slide tongue setup, brakes still work as well.


cleaned up side view during demo..


first part of reconstruction.. laying in the added layers in the stern and prepping the transom wall for new core material.


I have these on photo bucket under rcvowell, and will be adding more as progress is made and other pictures are found. I actually have the new transom core in and am plugging the old stern drive hole so I can spray the back with gel coat this weekend to get ready for the new drive mounting.

Damn, that would have been a nice '07 YZF-450, YZF-250, and maybe a TTR-125

I don't have the final engine price yet.. but I am expecting around 23,000 for the complete repower package.

I know I know.. it coulda gone towards a twin turbo YZ450 with gold plated spokes.. but.. you know.. boats izzz coo! hehehe

Just imagine the money you're saving doing the work yourself...not to mention the fish you're gonna kill when its finished!!!!!

My neighbor / friend just had a nice rig built and 'll soon be a Tuna-Killer myself. Good Luck and keep it up

Would it be faster if we loaded the bikes in the boat and took the ocean to the track? Provided thumper doesn't put us over max weight.
