Haha Thx! Ya Vaughn 3 is being referred to as the "Bass Boat Edition" LOL! My wife loves things that sparkle!!!! I'm in Roseville just north of Sacramento -found them on Craigslist in So Cal. Back in the day, I missed out on buying my buddies 24 Schiada so I've always kept an eye out for one, but waaaaay out of my price range These Vaughns handle really well and are a heavy lay-up
Hey MesaAlan - CONGRATS on the find! I have the 888 boat (which was originally an outboard) that I converted to an IO - This is the 3rd one we've converted - Note: that all 3 had a 2 1/4" solid transom - not the outboard well that your boat has - The 'Blue Heat' Vaughn 1 resto and Vaughn 2 resto are both straight V's while my 888 Vaughn has a delta pad - let me know what measurements you need -
*The outboard direction you're going will be FRICKIN' COOL!!!!! The outboard technology has really come a long way since the Merc 200's and 3.4L Cosworth days LOL!
Thanks norcallmo. I can see from the 888 pic you posted there is a pad under there. If the boat is still available to you, can you snap some close up pics of it? Dimensions of how wide and how far forward on the keel line it goes would be very helpful and appreciated.
My last boat was a older 270 Hallett with a 540 & Bravo drive. This will be my first weed eater, looking forward to it.
Very nice work on the pics you have posted. Hope mine turns out as nice.
New to the site here, is there a way to direct message you for your contact info?
