From Oregon, a delivery:
Managed to stumble into this bare hull, 1964 Uniflite Salty Pup, down in the Willamette valley a few months back, and loved her lines. She’s got character, potential, lineage, and bulletproof fiberglass construction. Fiberglass isn’t normally what I deal with, but given the economies of time and cash now that we have a small human occupying our home with us now, we live within the means we have. However, she needed power…
Yup, that looks about right. A 1986 Malibu Skier happens to have the same shaft diameter, engine overall dimensions, transmission, and prop as what was originally in the boat, a 318. So the economies worked out to pick up a low cost boat with rebuilt goodies and put one in the other.
Let’s look below:
Yup, good to go!
This beast is going to be a fun boat.
