    Nice boat Dave. Man, that is one hell of a trailer. Sheesh...don't believe I've seen one quite like that before!

    Thank you Ed
    That walkway goes the length of the boat on both sides, with built in boarding steps on both sides of transom. The trailer must have been custom built, but the best news is i got the boat and trailer straight across for a single axle caulkins worth maybe $200, no powertrain in boat, but have new rebuilt 0 hr 351 ford, and 0 hr rebuilt omc outdrive. all the interior cusions are gone, but I have a nice upholstery machine. steering station need some tlc, but again, i have the woodshop, this is one i can do in about 8 months. been trying to obtain it from the local boatyard fo last 6 yrs, ever since the Aztec I did went south! It may inspire me to start over with the website. I own the domain diyboatrepar.com, and have a free domain coming with hosting, and have an available name in mind that wont be far off from the old domain. I am just not sure i want to get back into hosting a site and working on my own boat at the same time, last time around was a nightmare trying to find time to do both!

    Well, we will certainly need more information than you have given. I have an '84 X SC 190, a 19' cabin cruiser. Let's see what you got.

    Uh...didn't anyone ever tell you that boats work better in the water than the snow?? :p Heh...

    Hard to tell much from that picture, though it does look like a nice boat. Did the previous owner also give you the title to it? That should contain some basic information on it. Otherwise, until you post some better pictures, we can't help you much as we can't see what it is.

    OMC outdrive istallation pattern wanted

    I recently acquired a 74 IMP Inca that had previously had a Volvo Penta drive system, when I got the boat the drive an engine had been removed. I have an OMC stern drive and ford 351 I want to install into this boat. I have already cut out the transom, and installed a replacement panel, doweled, and glassed in place. Now I need to locate and cut out the oval opening for the OMC short shaft drive. The engine is setup with hydraulic trim. I am looking for installation information to locate the right position to cut out the transom. I know that the opening is slightly located off center to compensate for prop rotation,. I need to find how far up from the keel, and how much offset is required for the opening. I can then use the boot retainer ring to trace out the place and size for the opening.
    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    I think were in the same boat

    I did the same thing you are doing to yours about 4 years ago. I went from a 351 that was locked up and installed a 307 and had to lower the hole about 3in to get the drive to line up. I have some specs somewhere with the drawings and math for installing the motor and outdrive from omc. I will look for them and get back to ya.

    Don't see any new posts, but what the heck. I just aquired a 1972 Aztec, and it has a chevy motor. Not sure which. Has an OMC out drive. Just fired it up! Runs like a champ! Sat for 8 or 9 years. Shows 279 hrs???? Everything would coincide with that number. Polished her out, and she came out beautiful. Need some advice on Bimini. I have it all, but it's pretty old and falling apart a bit. Where do I get someone to make a new one?

    You can check the marine stores also (West Marine is a biggie). You can usually get one that will fit your frame if you get the dimensions and ribs.
