This boat was brought in with severe engine issues; which turned out to be caused by several problems, including some cylinder head bolts being stripped. The owner chose to have the engine replaced and asked us to find him a suitable motor. We did the legwork for him and found a used Yamaha 130hp 2-stroke motor in very good condition. The installation also required a new wiring harness, ignition switch and bilge pump. We were able to acquire a previously used wiring harness and ignition switch at a cost well below that of new parts.
The owner kindly told us that after all this work the boat was like new and hadn’t performed so well in years.
