21 ft. 1987 Galaxy. My family got this for free back in 97? when the doctor who owned it thought the motor was blown up. After further inspection motor was fine, dad called up the guy and let him know and he told us to keep it. Boat has been sitting majority of the time since 2005 when the oil pan was replaced. Last summer we had our fiberglass buddies throw a new floor in it and we haven't touched it since and hasn't been ran since 2011. Went over today to bring it home but the tires were flatter than a pancake and I didn't have a compressor with me. So sometime this week I will begin work to get this ready for summer!

Here's how it sits (don't mind the redneck couch http://i1220.photobucket.com/albums/dd448/NorthportTroller/Smileys/laugh.gif )

Well before we even hook the trailer up to the truck I think to myself "I bet the trim motor is stuck again" I completely forget all of this we hook the boat up and my dad tows it away by the time I caught up behind him (2 blocks away from where we left) I noticed the trim is all the way down and the prop is hitting the asphalt on uneven spots http://i1220.photobucket.com/albums/dd448/NorthportTroller/tard2.gif So we pull over in this parking lot in the ghetto after dark. Now the boat has been sitting not ran for 2 years, so I immediately leave pops with the boat and got some jumper cables and a flash light. I get back we hook it up TRIM IS STUCK WHAT A SURPRISE! So we sit there and bang on it hoping it gets unstuck NOPE. Plan B? get wrenches and unhook hydraulic lines manually pull it up, IT SAID NOPE! So then we just unhooked the hydraulic struts? would you call them and tied that mofakker up. SWEET BABY JESUS WHAT A TIME WE HAD SITTING IN A PARKING LOT FOR A WHOLE 2 HOURS WHILE I RAN AROUND GETTING TOOLS. :f: this boat http://i1220.photobucket.com/albums/dd448/NorthportTroller/Smileys/cry.gif
