    That a California boat?

    Does it run? Where is it? I might be interested.

    Why is the deck notched, so it fits in the garage studs?

    Its not notched. Its a handle from a piece of lawn equipment.

    @aupatking yes it's never run anywhere except for in Newberry Springs. It's sitting there collecting dust now waiting for you to come get it

    @Horton I’ll take any $5,000 bubble back in the eastern half of the US. CA would be a record for me.. I’ve got the ETO.....
  • thagerthager Posts: 4,573 Mega Baller
    What engine in it? @ski6jones I have a number of the silverish instruments left over from my 2002 if you get it.
    Stir vigorously then leave!

    Never mind. I see it's a GT40 from a different post.

    Can you elaborate on "project"? Or link to other post with more details? Beyond the obvious cosmetic... motor hours, maintenance history, gauges, prop, immediate needs?
  • HortonHorton Posts: 27,770 Administrator
    I don't have maintenance records but it was never abused. When it arrived at my parents Lake my my dad was already in his 70s so you can imagine it was never driven hard and it hardly pulled anything over 34 miles an hour . Hours are a mystery because it's a GT40 and so there's no data but probably 2000 hours. I haven't walked the gel coat and looked at it carefully but I'm sure there's some scratches that are gnarly. My mechanic who is the same mechanic that maintains most of the tournament boats in Southern California values it at 5 to 6K.

    If anybody wants to come look at it it's in Newberry Springs I'll drive out there and meet you

    Pull that thing out of the garage and wash it down and buff it. Only a few hours of work...then post it for $5K. Rip some 35's behind it. Same boat just clean.

    Needs upholstery...could wrap it if the gel is tough. Personally if I lived nearby I'd have fun cleaning that thing up for sale.

    After the NorCal Mastercraft BOS Cash Prize event I continued my road trip to HQ in Bakersfield. The next morning we roadtripped to Horton Lakes and picked up Dr. Jack’s 1990 Ski Brendella.

    2 1/2 hours each way from my house to my parents lake with @RichardDoane in the truck. It was painful. All that happy enthusiasm was brutal.

    I finally had some time last week to order a starter/battery/spark plugs/fuel filter in order to get the engine tested. It hadn’t run in a couple of years by it’s condition.

    But since the discussion title is from 7 months ago about a Nautique, I think I’ll start a new thread.
