Hi all -
This has been an interesting thread to follow - see that you picked this up at a relatively low price and did all the work to make it such a nice boat.
I am new to ribbing, just picked up a Novurania (15') for $3,500. I did not really want a jet but it was the only thing around here that fits my budget, so I will see how I like it.
I plan to clean this boat up too (don't want to use the term "restore"), cosmetically some of the patches are peeling a bit at the edges as well as some of the seam tapes.
The electrical is a bit screwy - like the lights would work - but kind of sporatically. So there is a lot of sorting to do.
So far I have only tested the motor (a 90HP OMC) with a water hose and it seems to run fine and idle well. Interesting is that I "think" the motor is a replacement - some of the fiberglass at the engine bay has been "chipped" to accommodate some parts of the motor.
So I will need a lot of advice from you folks and will keep you in touch with the progress. Sorry I just want to mention this - not going to highjack the thread.
