I’ll make it short and sweet. I have a 83 Bahner with an XR2 Blackman motor that is going to need to top end. The t-stats failed and it died a slow death. Nothing broken but seized up.

The tandem trailer is mechanical sound but not the best looking. The boat gel is in pretty good shape and I just gutted and rebuilt the transom was it was rotted from the previous owner. I have added quite a few new parts (billet wheel, shifter, billet stand-off adjustable bracket, new cables, hot foot, all new electronics on the motor).

Here are some pics. Give me your best guess opinions please.

I mean I personally would consider repairing/replacing the top end before selling it. I just can't see any way the boat will sell for what it needs to without a running motor. Just ballparking here but: It might cost you $2-3k to rebuild it but you'll gain $5-6k or more on the value of the whole package. I don't know the value of just the hull alone with no motor.

Is the engine still stuck? Or did it free up? Id probably look into a new piston, rings, and bearings for that one hole and hopefully its not scored too deep so a ball hone can get it good. If it is deep, you'll need to resleeve as that should be a Nikasel liner engine. As for value.......... thats a hard one. crazy market right now, wrong time of year, bad motor, good hull........ Id say in a normal market at this time of year you'd be lucky to get $4 to 5k max as it sits. not..... I have not idea.

honestly I haven’t even looked at after I put it on the trailer. I need to pull the plugs and check each cylinder for damage.

Its a iron bore 2 liter. They are tough to kill. I would just plop a 2.5 200 powerhead on it and have a much better time.

I had to go do some research after reading your comment. I could have sworn they were the nikasel. I was wrong. Well, that makes it even easier to fix. lol!
