  1. The pic is the same boat as mine with a bit more hp.I"ve lived a mile from the ocean all my life . I got my first boat when I was thirteen and almost always had 1 ever since .Always had outboard boats , but got the bug for a hotrod V8 boat since we've been hangin at the lake the last few years. I for most of my life have been boating in the ocean, worked on lobster boats and draggers , even built them for 6 yrs when I was younger .It was hard to get the family excited about a non-ac mustang ride when it's 85 degrees , but the boat no problem .My gang really loves to go tubing behind the boat , they told me I have to be good to them on the new boat as the old 1 topped out at 40mph.:angel:My new boat will never go in salt water , but I still love living and working near it. As an ex-trucker , I"ve seen a lot of nice places across our country , but would totally go nuts if I couldn't live near the water.
  2. I'm the third owner , the p.o. owned it since it was 2yrs. old and always kept it in a garage , used in fresh water .It's 18'4"so it won't be too bad for trailering to the lake every weekend. It appears on the working hr. gauge to have 171 hrs. It's good for about 63mph and sounds incredible. The hull is capable of a lot more , a 383 stroker will get it up to 70mph , but I think for the cost of the upgrade and fuel consumption , I"ll be happy with the 350 .Now I need the ice to finish thawing from the lake.:P
  3. To all you guys that traded jokes , parts and advice........I have gone through a change in life and "Kermit460" has gone to a new home this winter. I know, I'm shocked I did it too.The first to ride bought it. The family and I spend summer weekends on a 10 mile lake here in Maine and love to get out on our boat . The mustang a.k.a. "Kermit"did'nt get used much after work ,loved the car but black vinyl and no A.C. made for an opportune temp. outside to enjoy.(Yes it does actually get hot here) I have now found a hotrod boat ,to have fun with the whole family. It's an 88 Powerplay 185-xlt with a 350 4V mercruiser 4" dual thru hull exhaust (it's loud and fast like Kermit ):)Don't hate me cause I got a "Chebbie" powered boat !:P You guys have been great and if I promise to get another Pony soon, can I still hang out ? Thank you guys for all the great times I"ve had here , Eric ...."kermit460"

  5. ::welcome:: from Hancock county !

  7. If you're getting water on both floor boards after rain ,one thing I"d check is the cowls to see if they're leaking. If you have to leave it outside , I would at least temporarily seal them up under the hood to slow further damage .
  8. Well , every once in a while you gotta give em' a rest boys ! rofl
  9. What ? , no pics ? I"ve been taking my daughters tubing as well lately. My 13 yr old is brave one challenging me to dump her in the turns , the 17 yr old hates it when I speed up . I"ve got an old evinrude 90 hp on a 16 ft boat , fun but actually harder on gas than the mach 1 .
  10. Cool Greg , were you able to talk with any of the owners and invite them to join us ?
  11. + 1 , I did the same thing on mine and I think mine came from mustangs unlimited
