Boat with twin 351 Clevelands!
#1
For the serious 351C fan! Kinda cool.

Sorry a little off-topic but thought the motor connection was neat.

Boats are neat but in my experience a big thing that floats on the water that keeps sucking up BIG money! Smile

There's one of the interesting examples of Cleveland power where the ratio of rot is reversed: The engine is probably rotted from sitting in that bilge of seawater over seawater.

I'll bet the only reason it hasn't blown up from fuel fumes is because it hasn't been run enough all these years. Diesel is the only way to stay safe with inboard power.

Cool. Seems to be a nice boat. But money pits they can be. Confused

Boats are holes in the water you just throw money into.
I rent boats, $250 gets me a full tank of gas and a whole day of fun. Then someone else can clean it, maintenance it, repair it, and store it.

I will say with the price of homes in CA, one could buy this boat in live in it.

You can bet that particular boat is a money pit. It was nice in it's day though. Boaters have a saying that holds true in many cases: "My two happiest days with the boat was the day I bought it and the day I sold it"

No pics of the twin 351C's, probably for a reason, unless they were very well maintained and cleaned after each outing you can bet they're rust buckets. As Kurt note, being out on the water with two older gas inboard engines would also be a safety concern for me.
