Description

I am selling my 1996 Aquasport Osprey Center Console. I purchased this boat from the original owner last fall after it had been sitting for a number of years. After putting in fresh fuel and oil I took it out on the water and it ran great and cruised about 45 MPH with three people on board. Since it ran so good, after that I put it in my garage over this past winter and I redid pretty much everything on the boat to make it look as great as it ran. Things I replaced over this past winter were the following:-Detailed the hull inside and out with 3M which came up excellent.-Replaced the original windshield with new tinted windshield.-Had all the original seat cushions recovered with new foam also.-Replaced all the gauges with new Faria gauges.-Replaced all the switches and breakers.-Replaced all the inspection covers in the floor and side panel.-Replaced the interior cockpit lights with new blue LED lighting-Added multicolor LED light strips in both sides of fishing rod holders with control panel in storage compartment.-Replaced anchor light mount and also purchased new adjustable height LED anchor light.-Installed new battery.-Replaced the oil/fuel pump.-Replaced thermostats.-New drain plugs.-New bottom paint.The hull is in excellent condition with no damage and the gel coat still shines great. I removed the original Aquasport side logo as it was faded and left the original stripes.The EZ loader trailer is also in excellent condition and I also replaced the wheel bearings and the winch strap and hook.
Now for what the boat needs. After everything I did with this boat over the winter the first time I took it out this season I found it was only running on 3 cylinders. After a compression check I found that one of the cylinders had low compression. After removal of the cylinder head on the starboard side. I found a few scrapes on the one cylinder and it appears that it is going to need that cylinder redone. The rest of the engine and lower outdrive are in excellent shape. I have all the receipts from when the boat and original motor were purchased new in 1996 and also the receipts for when the current 2003 Johnson 115 was purchased new as its replacement engine. This boat is an excellent boat for someone who has the time or experience in fixing the motor or if you have another motor you'd like to use its a great boat ready to go. I have excellent feedback and wanted to be completely honest about what this boat needs. I am leaving the cylinder head off so anyone interested can see exactly what the issue is. If you would like to see the boat in person or have another questing please let me know. Also purchased but not yet installed is a Garmin 541s GPS fish finder/plotter and new wheels and tires for the trailer. If the buy it now price is used I will throw them in with the deal as well. If needed I have more pictures that can be sent.
