OK, THE BAD BOY is home.
This Bertram has all the options i ever dreamed of.
I still am amazed of the Quality when built. No rotten
stringers or transom. I surveyed till my eyes bleed all weekend. Low water pickups, fresh water rinse for engines. even the Batterys are in this needle.
Lots of thumbs up while cruising down to Fl.
I made this trip with 30 year old 12 ply tires cracked beyond your amagination :eek: . They held air for 30 years, I felt it should make the trip to Fl. 1200 miles and all.
The trs drives are complete with drive shafts and safety loops for shafts. 4 aluminum tanks with manual switch to change tanks while under way. Dash has all correct gauges and levers that seems to work. Turbo boost gauges, fuel pressure gauges, and the rest of the standard gauges. Everything works and is there. Even the risers are there for the 8V91 detroit bad boys :lick: .
I think I will go with Yanmars, but let see what i find for complete power with transmission/Exhaust pumps, all that good stuff that makes this toy marineized.
Well I am home and here are some pictures of my next hole in the water. Thanks all for your time.
Solo :yak:
