Well, it's not a sailboat but it is a free boat. I was given a 1975 Cobalt 18' bowrider. It needs a little work but should be a good boat. When it was pulled out of the water
and stored on the trailer it ran fine. But that was 4 years ago. Unfortunatly the floor has rotted out and the gel coat has lots of small cracks. The floor should be no problem but the cracks I am not sure yet what to do. I do have a delima though. The owner said the boat has a 306 engine
? I have seen for sale
adds that say 302-351 but no 306. There is a sticker on the heat exhanger that says "188 H.P." It is a Mercruiser engine
and I assume Mercruiser outdrive. I am in the process of trying to find the s/n of the engine to cross reference it. Anyone with info on this boat or shop manuals for sale
would be a great help. Thanks in advance for the info.
ps, can I still stay even though it doesn't have a sail
