So, for some reason these boats have always held a soft spot in my heart. Maybe its the fact that my grandpa owned one when i was a kid. But after months of looking i finally found one for sale. This is a 1989 240 Legend with a 350 Mercrusier and an Alpha 1.
Overall the boat is in decent shape. Fiberglass seems to be in good shape, needs a good buff and polish. The interior is good with the exception of the carpet. It will need to be replaced. They recently put new Bimini tops on the boat so that’s one less thing I will have to worry about.
The drive needs a new lower unit as the scag is missing almost entirely. Motor seems to run good so far but we will see.
My plan is to clean this thing up and put a few modern touches on it. New gauges and switches, steering wheel, update the stereo, and replace all the old deck hardware. Hopefully when I’m done it will be the newest 1989 on the water.
I’ll try and remember to take tons of pictures as I go along and post them here. Hopefully everyone enjoys the thread.
