Just needed to find a motor. Well thank you Craigslist found an 80’s tri hull no tittle with 80hp merc for $250. Roll the dice on her and scored compression 125-120 across the board fired her up and she runs good. Will get it swapped this weekend or next. So in 3 weeks went from boatless to owning 3 with only $250’out of pocket
