Summer is just around the corner! Get a lot of boat for not a lot of $$, over $7,000 invested. This boat has been stored indoors since ownership. In 2015 I undertook an extensive project to rebuild and upgrade everything from the hull to the deck. Restoration recorded with numerous pictures that I will provide as well. Including new stringers and floor flotation foam, carpet, swivel seats and upholstery. I also installed a new SeaStar "No Feedback Steering" system, new electrical wiring housed in looming, lighted toggle switches, NOS tilt and trim switch, fuse block, fuel lines, plugs water pump and rub rail and re-bonding the hull to the deck with 3M 5200 white Marine adhesive/sealant. I have installed quick connect cables for ease in charging the battery. For the sound system the boat has a four speaker Pioneer 160w stereo with remote, and LED interior lights. A detailed list is below. Also is a new Bimini top and blue boat cover a set of water skis, tow rope and flags and will throw in a three of life jackets, and a full tank of non-oxy fuel. Boat runs great and handles and turns very tight with the new steering system. The boat is a closed bow with a sun deck in front and underneath is a 25 gallon on board tank, also this area has lighting and storage for equipment. 1976 Marquis Barracuda 18' run about (closed bow). powered by a 1978 Johnson 115 HP Sea Horse outboard engine (runs strong).
