Pacific coast Datsun

New owner of a Datsun that floats--->

Recommended Posts

Today i worked a deal with HVYD aka Daniel :) I traded my 72 Wagon for his 76 Datsun powered boat. It's made by Conqueror marine, model is a "sundance 16" powered by a L 20B. It was sad to see the wagon go but he's excited about getting it & needless to say the boat is worth trading for :D It needs some interior work but no biggie..i have some plans to use some bamboo & viynl down the road. On to a few pix...

Yeah already know that a glass filter is'nt allowed on the water. Have a plastic filter waiting for it.

Sorry Mario this oppurtunity came up & i went for it. I had'nt driven the car since JCCS last year.

Two happiest days of a boat owner's life:The day he buys the boat and the day he sells the boat.

You have got to paint your boat/truck as a matching showpiece! Will you be towing it with the 620?

Mark has really been wanting this!!! CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!! If He has the same luck with His boat as I have, He has made a good trade!!! Boating changes You forever. There is a connection to water that will stay with You forever. I have had extremely good luck with the 4 boats that I have owned. I do not see why Mark will have nothing but the best of times with His!!! I certainly wish Him that!! I also know that Mark is a good enough "wrench" that it will only hit the water in a safe, mechanically sound condition. SWDP BOATING CHAPTER!!

Ok i now have 2 bumpers for towing the boat. A big TY to Jesus620 for hooking me up. The 720 will be towing it & need to do the wiring & mount the bumper.

Turbo it

:o im glad it runs good now :) will get a tune up & oil change before she sees the aqua.

New free bumper mounted as of just now. Need to get the ass end up 3 inches to tow safely & i have 3 options...

1. put huge baloon tires back on 185-75-14's that are NEW

2. remove 3 inch blocks

3. fab & weld on a "riser" where the tow ball goes that raises it 4 inches.

Ditch the bumper and build a receiver so you can get a stinger with some lift built into it.

I hate towing from a bumper. Scares the crap out of me!

Yeah the plan down the road is to do this & have a flip down plate.

With help from Greg [sd620] i now have a safe way to tow the boat with plenty of clearance. Its Ratsun style for sure but it'll work fine.
