I just drug home a 18' OUACHITA Bass Boat that needs a lot of tender love and repairs. Single pilot seat with small console, Chrysler 70 Magnapower Ignition Outboard, Power Tilt, Flat inner flooring. Pictures to follow.
1st a good bath and scrubbing to clean up the outer and inner hull, vacuum out all the leaves and pine needles from sitting up for 7 years. Keel seams to have some splits in her but when on my way home from picking her up we ran through about a 4" per hour thunder storm and the boat filled about 5" deep in water with no drippings out the bottom. Pulled the plug to a gushing flow of rain water loaded with leaves, pine needles, and twigs.

Tilt, Steering, Hydraulics, and throttle controls all disconnected. Throttle and shift cables rusted and will be replaced. Steering cable and mounting parts all ok, Hydraulic pump seams to be ok BUT, we shall see.

Trailer in great shape except for no safety chains which I will weld on before towing again. Hitch lock quite rusted and will be replaced.
