Re: 1978 Terry Bass Boss

Wow that motor looks great. I know nothing about mercury motors from the 70s. Are they desirable outboards? Sent from my SM-G973U using Tapatalk I think the late 70s and 80s were some great motors. They had one flaw and that was the insulation on the wires degraded quickly. Every single one I have ...

After watching your other builds I cannot wait to see what you do with this one. You always make them look better then when they come from the manufacturer.
Thanks!

Re: 1978 Terry Bass Boss

This motor cleaned up so nice for a 78’.....I don’t even think I need to order decals for it like I have done in the past builds.

Re: 1978 Terry Bass Boss

All stripped. I have to say, these TERRY boats are not built to the standards that the 80s bass trackers were. Seems like everything is made from thinner aluminum even the floor frames. Next up will be pressure washing everything then fill it up with water and see how many leaks it has.

1978 Terry Bass Boss

Well, I picked up this boat for super cheap ($340). I’m not sure yet exactly what my plans are for it. It’s a 16ft 50hp with power trim tilt. I got it home to start figuring out what does and doesn’t work. Junked the super sixty depth finder and ancient trolling motor. Trim tilt wasn’t working but I...

Re: 1987 Pro 16 bass tracker rebuild

I have one question. Since this boat was bought to restore and sell. Did you come out ahead? I’m only asking because I see small Aluminium boats for sale for cheap around here where I am at and thinking about restoring them and flipping them, but not sure if it’s feasible. I wouldn’t say I come out...

I recently added Panoptix Livescope to this boat! Awesome! I’ll get some pics when I get a chance.

87 Bass Tracker MV 16 rebuild and upgrade.

Now is the perfect time to put a few inches of water inside the boat then go underneath and check for leaky rivets. Usually there will be a few and they are easy to replace or rebuck
