Full mechanical injection system, CAV type. Estimated at 115hp each.If the hours documented are accurate from a 1981 model, the engines have roughly half of their life used at 5300 hours and we have had this boat on theErieCanal for the last 3 years and clocked another 250 hours. In 2015 she spent most of the season in dry dockhaving her hull completely redone. See photos.

The reason for selling her is that my wife and I have decided that at our advancing age we should look for a smaller craft.
