    Another Northwest Newbie

    Hello everyone. Glad I found the forums. I recently picked up a 1982 Bayliner Capri 19 foot Cuddy for $150 for the boat and trailer. Originally it had the Volvo Penta aq125 a with a 270 outdrive. After taking about two weeks to get the motor running go through everything and make sure it was all good, I got it out on Lake Washington and cruised around for five or six hours until the motor blew.
    I was thinking it was going to take fairly Hefty chunk of change ( we all know what boat stands for ) to get this thing back up and running. However because of the wonders of OfferUp, I found the complete aq120b with 270 outdrive $200 running. So I bought it, brought it home ,and over the last two days we pulled the old motor out can I have the new one in place. I'm hoping tomorrow that I can get out and finish putting all the bits and pieces back on and getting the wiring installed and have it running tomorrow. Unfortunately we missed getting out on the lakes for Memorial Day oh, so we're looking forward to getting some fishing done in the next few weeks.
