Description 1975 Viking 40. No reserve auction. Project boat needs very little work to be functional, some work to complete the restoration/update. All the major pieces are there. Over $100k investment in the last half dozen years. Priced for quick sale: Sale price is notably less than the sum of her parts Solid hull and drivetrain, has spent most of its life at the dock or wintered on stilts (new england boat until 5 years ago; fully winterized and spring commisioned every year. shipped to TX for restoration). Engines were tuned, valve lash set, and all hoses, fittings and pumps refit. Little use since then. Just short cruises around Galveston. A couple 100 mile trips.

Engine paint just stripped, treated and epoxy sealed against corrosion.  Port engine leaks a little oil from the pan gasket. Not enough to be a concern. Could use new throttle and transmission cables. Pump/alternator belts haven't been replaced since painting.
