Lap it Up

Look what I found!!

Recommended Posts

Nice catch.  Your defroster wires in the rear window makes it look like a Hewes lappy.  Good luck with it!

WOW! how did you manage to find that thing? Seems like finding one of those lately for a reasonable price is like finding an old air cooled Porsche tucked away in a garage..

I have a LT 20fter with a 150 Vmax or it did have a VMAX.  It is a great engine 18 yrs of trouble free performance.a lot of get up and go.  Old fashion version of the SHO today.  I had to change it out with because of  a little water jacket corrosion.  The old vmax had a hot rod sound taking off.  Good luck have fun getting it  spruced up.

Here's a few pics when I hooked it up.  My wife actually found it on Offer Up.  It will need wet sanding and cutting to bring back the blue. Over all she is in decent shape. Time for some

accessories... Jackplate, Power Pole, water pressure gauge and Low water pickup and tempress seats coming soon.  I'm a big 2 stroke fan so I'm excited to smell oil again this weekend!!

Nice find!! I would offer to come by and help with the sanding and buffing but It looks like you already have help looking at the last picture.

This is going to sound weird, but do you live in Boynton? Looks a lot like my old neighborhood that I grew up in.

Nice boat and a great little project!

No, not Boyton.  I live in Cutler Bay. Just north of Homestead.

Oh, man, what a great looking vessel!   You will absolutely love that thing.  I absolutely love that blue, and once you wet sand it, it will make you grin every time you look at her.   That MA hull will ruin you for life!

Freakin sweet rig! I miss a 2 smoke engine too!!

Given the year and model of the boat, did you happen to survey the boat and/or run a camera into the bilge to check the stringers?

I did not survey it.  I have never done a survey.  I did as much bilge inspection as I could thru the big bilge access.  No damage or delamination at all.  Compression is great and even. For the price I was willing to take the low risk percentage.  I got her for $15k cash.

WINNER WINNER CHICKEN DINNER - that was a frickin steal.  I have never seen a (running/floating/equipped) 21 go for anything close to that.  I don't  know whether to congratulate you on a smoking deal or report you for theft! ;)  

Nicely done, now get out there and start sanding!

Same color as my old one. Miss that boat a lot!

Does this one have the rope insert rub rail? Such a classic look. 

You'll love that ProV!

Yes, it has a rope insert.  I like the look also I just don't like how it stays wet forever! I will change the rub rail to a solid rubber one this off season.  The ProV is a great engine. I have had a few of them over the years.  Keep oil in them and keep em cool and the run forever.
