1979 Delta, inboard Cummins diesel series 382 4bt 3.9l.  Velvet drive transmission.  Quickload aluminum trailer.   I bought this boat several years ago as a commercial fishing boat with plans to turn her into a dive boat.   She is a solid, well built boat with heavy glass.  I liked the fact that she was a hardtop and that she had the inboard diesel.  The rear deck was spongy when I got her, so I replaced with 3/4 plywood.  While the rear deck was off, both 50 gallon fuel tanks were pulled, sandblasted, repainted and replaced.  New fuel sending units and fuel gauges.  The deck was then covered in solid teak using the West epoxy system.  The deck is good.  The hull is solid.  No rot.  The deck house frame may have a little decay around the windows, but structurally sound.   Since then, she has been sitting under a shed in Georgia for the last 2 years.  I relocated to Florida and could not take her with me.  She has not been moved since.  The pictures were taken before I relocated.  I'm sure she has a full coating of Georgia dust.  Probably has wasp nests.   I used to run the motor from time to time.  At some point, I believe the ignition switch may have gone bad. There is no battery on board at this time.  Consider that she is a non-running  project boat.  But with not too much work, she could be on the water taking you comfortably to your dive location. I am selling her as is, where is.  She is sitting on a Quickload aluminum trailer with new tires.  She is located outside of Statesboro, Georgia. No warranties expressed or implied.  This is a project boat.  This is a no reserve auction, high bid wins. The motor, transmission, and trailer are worth more than the starting bid.  Please ask any questions before bidding.  I will answer as soon as I am able.  $500 non refundable deposit by PayPal due at close of auction, balance in cash at time of pick up.  The deposit is non refundable because I will have to travel back to Georgia to meet buyer at the boat. Please know what you bidding on before bidding.   The boat must be picked up within 14 days from the close of the auction.  I am happy to work with the new owner on the timing, but must be within 14 days.Good luck!
