I love the dark hull, but makes visibility a *****. She looks good. Is she i/o or shafted??

I see guys running that style boat all over the place clamming in the back bays, always look nice cruising around.

we are also looking for a complete small block chevy inboard. if you have one or know of someone looking to get rid of one please contact me at 609-496-2936. or email me at [email protected]. the previous owner had a worked 350 chevy that ran on race fuel which we had him pull because we are looking for something a little more economical. we purchased it with the tranny so we would like to match it up and drop it in

just a quick update. we have her all sanded down and are doing some minor glass work to seal her back up right. should have it sprayed with emron with in 2 weeks. we are going to keep with the black hull with a little grey trim and booth. we also picked up a 351 ford which we are going to part out and buy a new block. we did a compression test and it didnt seem to be where it should for the amount of work going into it. overall very pleased with the way it coming and it will look sweet running down the bay. i will have more pics after this weekend.
