Description:  
UPDATE:
As of 8-24-2015 the boat is still available. I will be in Maine from September 4th to the 7th. I will not have phone access while in Maine, but I will be able to get email. I was in Maine last month and got the boat running and took some video. It is available here:

So far, NO ONE has seen the boat. I think my waiting list has discouraged several potential buyers and one-by-one people high on the waiting list are dropping out and-or have stopped responding to my e-mails. I'm thinking of getting rid of the wait list. Let me know if you have a strong objection to this, I'll reconsider if you prove you are ready to buy the boat.

In the interest of full disclosure, here are all the good and bad things about the boat:

Good:

1. I installed the electronic ignition from the old engine onto the replacement engine in the boat.
2. My mechanic told me that the stringers and transom of the boat are in good condition. He inspected them when he swapped engines.
3. The floor is solid
4. I'll include the following parts from the old engine:
Holman Moody exhaust manifolds
Rebuilt Holley Carburetor
Edelbrock RPM performer intake manifolds
I might include the whole original engine if there is strong interest, but I already have a potential buyer for the engine.
5. I put LED lights on the trailer as well as new pressure-treated wood bunks with plastic bunk glides instead of carpeting
6. I'll include a less-than-1-year-old Dryguard Trailerable Waterproof Boat Cover (4 year warranty)
7. I had my mechanic add a fuse panel for protection of the electrical components.
8. I replaced the bilge blower and hose, over this past 4th of July weekend.

Bad:

1. The boat has a non original rear hatch made out of wood and canvas. I have a replacement unpainted fiberglass hatch but there might be fit issues.
2. The water pump inlet plumbing through outdrive probably has an air leak; this is probably what caused the overheating of my original engine. I'll try to fix this the next time I'm in Maine.
3. The fuel pump is weak, so that it can't supply enough fuel to the engine at wide open throttle when getting fuel from the tank and-or the water separator filter. I'll try adding an inline fuel pump to see if this corrects the problem.
5. The boat has its original, 45 year old fuel tank. No leaks so far, but it could happen any time.
6. The current outdrive has a water leak. I will include enough parts to build 2 replacement Volvo 270 outdrives with the sale of the boat.

Original ad:
I believe I'm the 3rd owner. The previous owner was a family who kept it for 40 years on a lake in New Hampshire (I still have the old NH boat registration).
There is a replacement 351W in the boat but I still have the old engine complete with freshly rebuilt 4 barrel Holley Carb, Edelbrock Performer intake, original Holman Moody Exhaust manifolds. I also have enough Volvo Penta parts for a complete outdrive.

It's a beautiful dark blue boat from 30ft or further away.

Up close, you can see it is an unrestored, 45-year-old boat:
