It has been some time since I’ve updated on my various projects and so forth, due to unexpected travel over the last two months. But hopefully I will be able to bring some of these bits across the finish line in the next few weeks. One turn of fortune over the last month or so, I inherited a boat. It’s a little rough, but has been determined that the only off bits are the seats and flooring, all other components, including the 200+ hp Ford 302 V8 engine, are in good shape. Some colleagues and I are refurbishing the best over the next few months, with an additional of a “dark room” ROV station and A-frame winch system for heavier duty kits.
1977 AMF Crestliner 17ft sleeper ( aka it doesn’t look like a muscle boat…but it is) 302 Ford V8 200+ HP ~50 mph, OMF stern drive…and it’s blue.
I had to dig out the wheels and replace the tires of the trailer, relocate a hornets nest, and started clean-up. Hopefully ot will be exploring the Chesapeake by spring.
