    I honestly have no idea about that boat bill... I wasn't being rude by not responding, but responding to it would just be wasted space. sorry my friend. :sad2:

    OK folks, the bike deal went off without a hitch today, and I have the greenery in hand to turn the boat transaction. The pressure is now OFF, and I am headed to the river to fish with Peg and barefootfishn tonite. Hope to swing the boat deal tomorrow, or Monday. 'Pends on how the fish bite tonite! :)

    The boat is now in my possession. It is 6 1/2 wide, after all. PLENTY of room with it's 20 foot length. The 200 hp black max sounds like a top fuel dragster. The guy bought the motor new, still in the crate. Once again, he said it has approximately 150 hours on it. He bought it in '91, but it is an '89 engine. We took Peg's Z-71 to get it, and it pulls VERY WELL. Should be NO problem for my Toyota with it's towing package. I have to do a few mods to get it just like I want it, but that's half the fun! Will get pics up as soon as I can figure out why the camera chip, says "write protected" now. It won't let me transfer my pics from the chip to my computer. The chip doesn't have the little switch on the side of it, and I have gone into it's properties, with no luck. I'll get it ironed out soon.

    I got a pic on the computer by e-mailing it to myself and then saving it.

    Will get more and better pics later today.

    First thing I'm going to do is remove the console and make a tiller handle. Then, I am going to remove the storage boxes that are takin' up the sleepin' quarters. :wink: I am headed to my brothers on Lake Wylie next Saturday, and he is going to:

    Check compression
    remove and clean carbs
    check water pump
    drain and replace my lower unit oil with synthetic
    remove the oil injection system

    IF I do decide to keep this high powered Mercury 200, we may put a low water intake on the foot so I can run it tilted WAY up when I get near the rock bars. I won't do that upgrade until I decide if I will keep this motor, as it is about a $400 upgrade.

    Nice, Bill, but why didn't you get a red boat? :wink: And if I were you, I think I'd make the tiller handle and test it before I took the console out. :smile2:

    LOL! I know y'all think us rednecks be crazy with our funky tiller handles! :crazy:

    I've found that the high powered engines handle JUST as well with tillers as the lower powered engines do. In fact, QUITE COMFORTABLY. :wink: Seriously, with mechanical steering there is a certain amount of "lash" in the steering, which makes maneuvering in tight quarters difficult, to say the least. Tiller steering is quick and snappy. I like to worm my way into difficult spots, efficiently! :wink:

    < oh i did forget to mention on pretty good current river boat launches you will have some fun loading that dude back up,>

    Been dealing with this ol' river, boats, and it's challenges all my life. I don't anticipate any trouble in that respect. I did hook it to my truck and pull it down the road a few minutes ago. Peg's Z-71 might not have known it was back there, but my truck sure does! :crazy: I hope I don't have any difficulty pulling it out of the river on the steep ramps we have. If I do, I'll have to get a V-8 truck and use it only for pulling the boat. The boat STAYS!:wink:
