Baller swc5150 Posted May 18, 2012 Baller Share Posted May 18, 2012 Just kind of thinking out loud here. For those of us who have older (90's) boats, and don't really want to or can't drop the cash on a new or late model ZO boat, how many are considering just re-powering? Many of us love our old tugs, it would just be nice to have a modern powertrain. I got thinking about when a friend of mine rebuilt the drivetrain in his '93 Stars and Stripes last year, at the cost of $3k. Drop another $7 or $8, and you've got a state-of-art motor to last another 20 years. Granted, I'm not sure this is a viable option for the hardcore tournament guy, as you'd want to train behind something you may draw at the site? But if a guy's had his boat paid for many times over, $10k-ish doesn't seem to be a bad deal for a sweet upgrade? Again, just thinking out loud.
