A week ago i got a 97 challenger 1800 for $1000. The boat needs a lot of work but I think with a little bit of luck it can be done.
Here are some pictures. The boat is been seating for over 2 years. The owner told me that one of the engines was bad for sure and the other one used to work.
The bad. One of the engines is completely rusted inside. I am going to get a rebuild from SBT. The neutral shifter cable also needs to be replace. It broke when I tried to move it. The weedless system is also stuck.
The ugly. All seats need to be replaced or reupholster. No even the foam has survived in some of them. Radio is gone and speakers need to be replaced.
The Good. The remaining engine looks to be ok. It cranks and has 140 and 150 PSI on each cylinder. Not how I like to be but not bad. Hull is in great shape. Both impellers look good. Trailer is also in great shape with brand new tires.
To be continue.
