    agreed!! I have always wondered how you can have 20 stories of crap and seems that the boat is only a few stories underwater.

    40ft of draft if I recall. Pulling into the virgin islands we kicked up an awful lot of sand with the side thrusters as they were navigating in to port. But yea, pretty crazy. Even at that big you could feel it swaying a little - when you were in the bathroom the towels would swing on the bars. And the pools on the upper decks sloshed back and forth a little. But I think that could have been from the wind vs waves.
    So when is this "old enough to know better" supposed to kick in?

    After fighting the alternator in, removing the water pump twice, new belt, etc. I go to hit the key,,, click-click-click. Sweet.

    Thankfully, rather than dropping a crap ton more $$ on more express shipping for a new starter, a mid 90's Chevy C1500 is a direct replacement. For anyone who happens to have one of these Indmar Assaults still.



    My daughter had fun "helping" me get everything buttoned up.



    Sure is nice having a shop with room to spare when the weather turns and the unforecasted rain pays a visit.





    Later this week I might actually get out on the water and be able to contribute actual boating pics to this thread. LOL
