We buy used boats and fix them up and sell them...work on them next to the garage...
sometimes we do well and sometimes now...it is always a gamble when you buy what you think is a real bargain fixer upper and then you find something wrong with the engine that is going to cost alot more to fix than you originally thought. Even with our many years of experience that does happen from time to time. If you have a boat buying, fixing and reselling experience to share please post it in the comments section. We just went out in one of our most recent purchases that we had worked on for a very long time and ended up in the middle of Lake Monroe which is near Orlando and had to be towed in. So it was not a very good day for us.
I have been looking on craigslist and everywhere online for a used out drive for it.

It has been a long time since I posted about the boats I have been working on. Russ my old bf passed away and now I have a new boyfriend that has been buying boats and fixing them with the help of one of his buddies. I do help with cleanup sometimes after a boat is pretty well done. About 4 years ago we bought a 1986 Regal Commodore on craigslist and it needed a couple of gas marine engines. We bought 2 off of ebay and took the old ones out. I managed to sell the old engines right away but the ones from ebay were not the right ones. So we sold the boat and I ended up selling one engine whole but the other one was taken apart and I had to sell it in pieces. We had thought we were going to reverse that engine when we had the boat and it was taken apart for that purpose. Both engines ran fine when we got them but the mercruiser marine engine that was taken apart sat in the garage a long time. I still have part of it for sale that have not been sold yet which you can see by going to Marine Engine Parts for sale.
