Today i worked a deal with HVYD aka Daniel :) I traded my 72 Wagon for his 76 Datsun powered boat. It's made by Conqueror marine, model is a "sundance 16" powered by a L 20B. It was sad to see the wagon go but he's excited about getting it & needless to say the boat is worth trading for :D It needs some interior work but no biggie..i have some plans to use some bamboo & viynl down the road. On to a few pix...

Awesome! Sweet boat :) However any L20b Datsun powered boat is dead SEXY! I hate working on champion engines!

Yeah already know that a glass filter is'nt allowed on the water. Have a plastic filter waiting for it.
Sorry Mario this oppurtunity came up & i went for it. I had'nt driven the car since JCCS last year.

Whenever I think that I'm out of my mind for putting this much time and money into an old Datsun, all I have to do is look some of your threads to know that I'm not nearly as whack as you are.

You're going to skin a few knuckles, stand up too fast and bump your head, hunt around the floor for the nuts and bolts you dropped, invent a few new cuss words and when you're finished you'll say "That wasn't so hard after all!"

You have got to paint your boat/truck as a matching showpiece! Will you be towing it with the 620?

Mark has really been wanting this!!! CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!! If He has the same luck with His boat as I have, He has made a good trade!!! Boating changes You forever. There is a connection to water that will stay with You forever. I have had extremely good luck with the 4 boats that I have owned. I do not see why Mark will have nothing but the best of times with His!!! I certainly wish Him that!! I also know that Mark is a good enough "wrench" that it will only hit the water in a safe, mechanically sound condition. SWDP BOATING CHAPTER!!
