    This is not really a story, but I'd like to share with my Brothers of the BOC, Today I bought my 1st Boat..A 16 foot tri-hull, it needs some work but I got a great deal. I got the Boat, 65hp motor, and Trailer for $500.00! I'm currently sanding it,Getting ready to paint, I'll keep all my Brothers updated on the progress.

    Sounds as though it was a real good buy. Keep your eye on the deck and replace it if it starts getting soft. Have fun, and don't watch your check book/bank balance too close, because they are going to drop. LOL

    Nothing like doing your own boat and learning from it.

    congrats on the boat....we need pictures and so do you. You will enjoy having before and after pictures at some point in the future.

    enjoy, have fun, doing your own can be very rewarding.

    Glad you got a boat. 1/2 the fun is fixing it the way you want it. Send pixs!

    this might be viewed as cruel and unusual punishment for a guy that just got a new boat but just to toss out a a little advice, always go up river until you get confident in your engine. I've had to paddle up river a few times and it isn't fun.
