Model Owned: '90 Starliner with FrankenRude III while Frank IV is conceived

Default ISO 251 Convincor, w/or w/o power

Looking for a 251 in perfect condition, either less power or w/a scattered motor.

Going to convert to O/B so I dont care about the drive or motor.
Hull and interior must be perfect though.
Or pull your hardware and sell me the shell.

Prefer an aluminum trailer also.

Buying another house so cash poor until I sell/trade a couple of existing boats to support this project.

I have a virgin Starliner (probably $5500 w/o power), tandem trailer, hydraulic steering and jack plate, trim/plate on turn signal switches, perfectionist/newly re-rigged and also, a just as clean '93 Celebrity 20' I/O cuddy w/a 220 hp V-8, new $800 Sunbrella mooring cover, tabs, 2nd battery, camper enclosure, cockpit cover, as new, $7500.
The Celebrity is bad ass in rough water w/the tabs down.

If you have what Im looking for and can afford to wait until my junk sells, Id be glad to do a non refundable, nominal cash deposit.

Thanks guys. This should be fun.

Gary

Boom!

'86 251.

Fell in love w/the color scheme, never seen it before.

Wanted an alum trailer and its on one thats 1 yr old.

Has a .030" over 454 w/a stroker crank and is at 493 cu ins I believe.
All good parts (rods etc) but dropped a valve.
Has an '06 Bravo 1 thats perfect.
Seller guesed 625 HP's. 82 mph GPS.

Once I get it home, that all comes out and goes up for sale.

Should be a fun project.

So what's your game plan, Gary? The gel and interior look pretty clean. Can't wait to see the final project!

Convert to twin O/B, install a platform/bracket and probably OMC carbureted V-6 OMC loopers cuz that's what I know, and their cheap.

One reason I haven't done one before is their tiny, I think 57 gls, fuel tanks.
My Sonics carried 89 gls and I could drain it in a weekend if it was calm.
My options are to cut up the floor and replace existing or add a 2nd tank in bilge where motor is now.
That option is easiest but don't want the weight back there.

Will also be reconfiguring the cabin entry so we don't have to crawl in on all fours.
