Shoalwater Project

Just picked this up Monday from a guy in my neighborhood. I offered to buy it 9 years ago and he finally gave in. Should be a fun project.

If anyone has any specs on the fuel tank I could use them. It's missing.

My Dad had one of these and we fished out of it for years. He sold it about 5 years ago. That boat will run shallow and fishes great! He also had a large cavitation plate on the lower unit.

Part of me hopes you clean that motor up, maybe a new paint job and run it. Love the old school setups for some reason.


Should be a fun project indeed!

I agree...Those old OMC 70's are bulletproof and easy to work on. If that old motor has good compression; odds are clean the carbs, replace the fuel lines change the plugs and turn the key.

Those things run super shallow but are ROUGH ! LOL Have you tried to call Shoalwater and ask them about the fuel tank?
