Oh boy, sorry to hear about the outboard shortage. A few years back we enjoyed spending some time in Budapest. It is a beautiful city. Especially along the river. We drove there from Frankfurt with stops along the way. So we got to see some of the countryside. Also, I love driving on the expressways over there.

I got the motor running,150 mercruiser ,it purred like a kitten. It has fwd and reverse, impeller is shot, the hydraulics leak,and water got in the oil when I bypassed the water pump maybe that was a bad idea.
The floor and dash need replacing .

I just picked her up last Friday and couldn’t be any happier.
Would like to add a casting and maybe some more horses.

My new to me 2008 Explorer Industries 162 with a Yamaha 60/40 jet that I purchased this spring. Over the years I have had a lot of experience with work boats and have had some epic adventures with jet skis, jets boats, lake boats, tinners and mud boats, but this is my first personal river boat.

We had a ton of fun with the boat until an injector plugged, had to order a set off Amazon that took over a month to come in. In Canada Yamaha injectors are $250 each (none available in Canada because of Covid) I got 4 for $55 on Amazon from China. They appear to be working fine.

First voyage with my Daughter and some grandkids, we went to a local lake to try it out first.

Modifications to date:
Added grab bars over the windshields to reduce breakage.
Added a Fish Finder (Garmin 5) and mounted the transducer, going to remount to shoot through the hull.
Added a splash guard that has reduced cavitation in chop.

Cleaned up the spare impeller that came with the boat, the leading edges were beat up. Not sure if I got the angles right but in a few months will be able to tell.

Upcoming modifications:
Install Nauticus Smart Tabs.
Shine her up a bit and put on Sharkhide.
Move the transducer inside the hull.
Build a deck/storage area in the back.
Install navigation lights.

I took my daughter on a rip up the North Saskatchewan River to see how far I can get upstream on a tank of gas. Made 46 km (28 miles) with just a little bit left. Had about a third of the second tank when we got back to the launch, 91 km trip (56 miles). Top speed upstream was 37 kph (23 mph) and 48.6 kph (30 mph) downstream. :LOL2:
