    SNJOA probably stands for San Joaquin the valley where it was made or even the boatbuilders location.

    At $7500, the 331 hemi is worth more than the boat, one could probably make money selling the engine and just hauling the boat to the dump.....

    Sad isnt it?

    I feel it is way overpriced for the year built and the engine is a real gas hog compared to more modern v-8 engines and it might have well over 2,000 hours on it and parts
    might be difficult to find. My 2 bits. It is a 55 year old boat...................and Wood to boot.
