Don; My son is running a boat on Ohio now doing some work on a water intake. 1958 vintage with twin 8-71 's. Just thought you would get a grin out of that. He is experiencing antique first hand.   Bob

Bill, it's not really boat sales it's parts and upgrades for the fishhing and oil industry. Workboats, crewboats, patrolboats.

Clifford I am flying back and forth so I won't be there when you are.

Tom, there are alot of boats for sale you can still buy a twin, triple or four screw boat.

Bob, I wonder if the engines have ever been worked on or changed, I am working with a guy up in the oakland bay area that has a boat his grand father bought before ww II that has a single gray marine 6-71 with over 53,000 hrs on it and the records dont show that the head has ever been off of the engine. It takes a little either to start it but it runs clean and even on all 6.
