Hello all,

Great forum, used the fishing report, caught two walleyes this weekend at chatfield, first time out!

well here i go, i was just given a boat, its a 70's ish ski boat, fiberglass with a 70 something motor on the back parked in texas for 5-8 years.

got some questions,

is it worth rebuildong the motor or save and get a new one, i rebuilt a couple of sb chevys, not hard, but know very little about outboards. I believe its a 75- 115 hp johnson/evinrude or chrysler, not sure, havent picked it up yet, and need to know is it fairly easy to repair, or can you recomend an honest shop?

i also know the boat was gutted on the interior except for controls and motor sterring, and has the windshield.

i could use any help, or recomendations, as i plan to set up a new floor, couple of pedestals thngs like that.

thanks for any and all replies.

Happy fishin....
