Hey all,

I bought a 2001 Aquasport 225 Osprey Tournament back in November of 2016 and am getting close to getting her on the water. She ran OK on the Sea Trial despite a few items... And upon further inspection and consequent negotiating the price down I did bring her home from DeLand, Florida to Fort Lauderdale. Since I've had her, I've gone through the electrical system, replaced the main power breaker box, eliminated old and obsolete stereo equipment, installed two bilge pumps, reinforced the pulpit, replaced the gas gauge sending unit and done some minor engine work (Johnson 250 Ocean Runner)... Plugs and lower unit oil change... Hoping there are no hidden engine issues. Now waiting for center console cushions to be recovered, bolsters and splash guard snaps replaced etc... This is not my first boat but It will probably be my last! Also did $1800 worth of trailer upgrades (brakes) on an otherwise rust free galvanized trailer. There are still some unresolved issues but they are what I consider "lip-stick" items that will not prevent me from using the boat. I will be picking some of your brains for more info.

you have to upload them to a picture hosting site such as photobucket. Then just copy and past the link titled IMG for the photo in your post here.
