Re: Outboard on 1974 Pearson 10m?
we all know you can find a cheap boat but you are not going to get a boat for cheap.
so now he has a cheap boat that he can't use until he spends more then he could have bought a usable boat for.
Yes I have been looking at a Pearson 10M with newish diesel for less than the cost of a re-power. It needs a lot of other work though for my use.
That is the problem in this day and age of $6-7000 30+ foot boats, just one big issue and the repairs are more than the boat is worth.
By the way have you even seen the boat yet? The engine may be the least of your worries! By the way I like the hull color.
