yep chevy 350 5.7 ltr - theres nothing wrong with the boat at all, i just put a top anf side curtains on it this summer. even the motor itself is only 3 years old. it just needs put back together. The owner of budget boats came last week to see what he would give me for trade in on a new one........he offered me 2500 as it is right now, taken apart.......he said- you know its a shame you wont take the time to put it back together and install the motor again because i may go as high as 7000......i said i kow,but if i put it back together then i would keep it or sell it myself outright.......i just dont feel like working out in a cold ass garage anymore........here are my new top and curtains.....i made the whole thing myself.....cut,sand,bend weld.....the whole works !!!

That's the same motor I have in my boat. 350 with mercruiser Alpha 1 outdrive. No, you can't have it! :)

Go buy a heater for your garage? I have a nice kerosene heater that works very well. It's a forced air kerosene type kinda like the one pictured below.

In a small garage, you could turn that thing on for about 10 minutes and it would be so hot int here, you might have to take a break from p[utting the ole motor together.
