If I like the way it handles I have big plans for this one:
Lenco tabs 9x9 seems to be the recommended size / has anyone used the 9x12s on a 1500-1520 ?
I'm liking the new switch with led indicators and auto stow feature

Electric jack plate (I fish shallow often) any advice on setbacks for this boat ?

I'm leaning towards the 70 4stk Yammi because of the weight any other lightweights out there? Would love to max it out at 80hp but seems like the displacement AND weight goes way up

Talon anchor on the port side to help offset the weight of the side console

Relocate console battery to forward hatch port side / I believe I read someone on the Forum did this any advice would be great!

Some brand of Spot lock type Trolling Motor

A nice big (9-12") combo GPS FF that doesn't require a degree in rocket science (saw a 12" a while back for a grand)

Rebuild the 1997 aluminum trailer and add some nice wheels

Nice boat, but not a cult boat or classic. There are better candidates to flip and make a buck if that's your motivation.

OTOH, a project boat can be considered entertainment and its entertainment value depends on the individual involved. If you really enjoy doing the work and seeing a project come together as you envision it (and if you can afford it), then go for it and have fun.
