I picked up this boat in Nov. 2006. When I first went to look at it I thought I was going to look at a running boat. However that was not the case. There were lots of issues with it...hydro locked motor with a cracked block being some of the worst of it.

I declined on the boat and proceeded to drive home. I had alot of time to think about what I had just inspected, seeing as the boat was in Grand Rapids MI. and I live in Indianapolis.

About an hour into the drive home my wife turned to me and said "you want to rescue it don't you". I grinned and said yeah I do. She sure knows me well.

Well I thought about it for a couple of weeks and I called the guy back to see if he still had it. He did , and we came to an agreement on the phone.

Fast forward and Journey II begins.
