Well , I was just going to replace the floor cause it felt soft, but then i realized that the stringers and jibs were rotten also . I checked the transom yesterday and the couple spots that i pulled the glass back are solid, and they were in the lowest part of the bilge, so thank god i dont have to replace that. My neighbor hooked me up with a new motor, so next year it will be a pretty nice boat! :thumb:

That 120HP Iron Dookie will do just fine for that boat, unless you come across a 229 Chevrolet V6 from a 78-80 Malibu, Impala, El camino, etc. One of the non FI V6 engines. Run the exhaust out the back with some mercruiser 4.3 exhaust manifolds, and let it burn.
