First time I've ever seen that model. Very unusual cockpit arrangement.
Lots of room behind front seats for putting stuff found while "exploring".

I wonder about front leg room though.

My Johnson "Surfer" is back home after having the intake manifold removed,
inspected and re-installed. $243 later, I'm no further along in solving my
problem with the water in the oil. That's because I've not had time to work
on it.

I do have the flush adapter for the outdrive pivot and plan to hook water up,
and let it run through the engine and monitor the oil drain to see if any
comes out.

If not, then I'll put used oil and engine flush in and run the engine and let
warm up and check for evidence of water in the oil. If no water, then I'll
drain the oil, replace the filter and put fresh oil in the engine and hope for
the best. If water is found, I'll just sell the boat for parts.

I'm getting too old for this. My pontoon boat will have to do for my lake
excursions from now on. It's been very good the last 5 years and since I
replaced the floor with composite deck boards, it looks very nice and will
never rot or deteriorate again.
