Re: Bit by bigger boat bug - strip the old boat or refit new one?

I should have added that whatever I sell the old boat and Honda BF2 for should pretty much cover a 6-8HP long shaft for the new boat, and whatever is needed to get the new boat equipped for sailing. (It's missing some blocks and halyards and sheets, needs a keel winch and the trailer needs lights, a strap winch and I haven't inspected the bearings yet)

A brand new leftover 6 for $1300 seems like the way to go compared to a 15 year old 2 stroke for $800 that's an hour away on Craigslist.
