Nitro 18ft bass boat
I'm not trying to make it a drag boat
But it needed some ignition upgrades last yr (stator failed) so I went through everything on it replaced a bunch of stuff
The goal was just to make it reliable and not have to worry about anything for a few yrs (hopefully)
And now I cant get it to come up on it's own takes a lot of finesse if I can even get it to run
