I am selling my 1980 Signature Series boat. I had bought this earlier this summer to build and enjoy. I am currently moving back to the city and just don’t see myself using this much afterwards .I have put a lot of money and time into this and it will be a really nice boat when finished. I will list what has been done to it:   Full repower from 454 carb engines to dual 6.0 ls engines with texas speed cams, lifters and topends. Should put about 450-500hp per engine. Ls coil relocation kits, new custom manifolds from ski nautique with custom machined 02 sensor ports, new plugs, wires , intakes, custom intake shrouds to appear like a stock ls swap. Custom 4 inch stainless through exhaust which sounds killer. Holley complete efi kit with individual fuel systems per engine. Dual billet pre and after pump fuel filters with Holley an fittings, custom tig welded motor mounts for ls ,complete rewire of electric with 0awg wiring for both ground and power. Shuruken  agm batteries (one per engine for starting and 2 for audio system. Complete electric actuated lenco tabs with new led feedback controller , new fuel pressure gauges, new gps speedometer. billet overflow with custom closed cooling system with electric water feed pumps for reliability on oil pressure switch relay to only run once engines are started, Custom  painted engines blue and black to match boat. I had Bobby from neu Racing fly out here and professionally tune these .Dustin Deleon (formally of gas monkey garage) did the repower here at my shop and fabrication along with a local fabricator .Everything has been professionally completed and I cut no corners.   Full competition audio system: Rockford Fosgate 10 inch subwoofer with dual diamond audio hex amplifiers and dual sets of diamond audio hex component speakers Kenwood radio with Bluetooth and ipod connectivity. Stinger battery  isolator with dual batteries to allow it to play when boat is off and not drain starting batteries.   Complete custom interior: Complete diamond stitch blue and white marine grade interior on all seating and underneath bow. Complete new covered sun deck to match   Custom boat wrap. This was produce by 360 wraps from dallas (as seen on discovery channel) Has gloss black with blue truefire flames The AVC is my company logo that can be removed Line-x below waterline to carry the black theme and not affect the wrap process.     Trailer: 3 axle trailer included   The Bad:   After getting the engines completely in and tuned went for waster test and we think the drives will need attention. It makes a grinding noise on both sides typical from the pressure plate and gimball bearing.I have never gone through or had them touched and it is the only piece of this entire boat not customized or replaced or updated.I just don’t really have anymore time to spend on thia and winter is coming. I don’t see myself getting back into boats as I am a car guy.I am selling this for way under what is even in the motor swaps.If you are willing to spend some money or if you are any sort of boat mechanic this would be a steal .I have well over 50k into this not counting the 14k it was purchased for originally.I am selling for a quick sale before winter and am taking a huge loss. My loss is your gain. This is a no reserve auction. Good Luck!
