Donor Boat

Postby Jimbob » Thu Jan 25, 2018 10:02 am

I'm coming on the home stretch on my boat. Everything is new on my boat . Looking back, I probably could have saved money by buying a donor boat and taking what I needed. The trailer probably could have been modified to fit my boat. New boat trailers ain't cheap!
Maybe next time.

I’m using a mid 80’s tournament ski boat as a doner. Most have a 351 engine with 240hp and can be picked up for $4000-6000.
