I would love to be able to set one of them up. The only way to get to the drain plug is to pull the motor.  :banghead  

I took a few pics when replacing the fuel pump. I need to get them off the camera and post them.

Only have to do it one time, you'd think the factory would have put one in there to begin with, guess they don't want you doing your own maintenance... :rolleyes

So maybe the Blue Canoe will become a donor boat. At least the motor. Maybe I can put the squeeze on this Craigs List guy.

The "chopper gun" deal is what I'm dealing with on the Hawaiian. It has no structural strength, everytime you fix cracks or paint it the repairs just don't last. The Day Cruiser is a 79 Kachina so it probably is the same thing but worth a look.

Yeah, with those anything forward of the mini stringers are pretty much a limp dick, I seen some Kachinas with full stringers, may have been a custom deal don't know??, wouldn't hurt to take a look may luck out, never know.. :stupid

Well I went and checked it out. Hull seemed solid no visible cracking or damage in the bottom. Normal gel coat cracking common to these boats. Should buff out and shine a little. Has some sort of BBC looks fresh or at least a new coat of paint and its not locked up. Berkeley with a Place Diverter. Interior is shot. OE Gauges from 1979.

It does have just 1/4 stringers for the engine. But about 4 inches outside that it has a raised floor. Is it possible that there are full or 3/4 stringers running up on the outside of the motor?

Decent tandem Roadrunner Trailer.

Guy wants $1500. I'm thinking $1000 maybe $1200.

I doubt it very much but possible, I'd want to lift that sub floor anyhow just to see what the hull looks like down there and check around the stringers, BB's have torque and if it was driven hard it's common to see those mini stringers pulling up off the floor especially on the drivers side, but even if it needs a little glasswork and the pump is good if you can get it for $1000-$1200 should be a decent deal???, I wouldn't go more than $1200 though. That's a bummer I could have gotten that one for $1000 or less, could have taken your motor and just bolt it in and go done deal.. :banghead
