  • Newbie with some questions

    Hello to all, just picked up a 72 22ft center console with dual axle roller trailer,120 johnson,and jrc radar,for a steal of 450.00.what makes this model so sought after?typical gas tank issue,wet foam,soft floor.would love to close in the back since so low,just bought gill bracket for the project,will this make the boat peform better?seem very low transom on back what could be the max to raise the transom? Also think the 120 would be a dog,would love to get a 225 etec. Any input would be great, bought boat and no money left for camera haha,post piks when the rain stops thanks bryan

    Welcome to CM! I have a '72 22' too. I had to pay $4500 ~6 years ago with a Suzi 150, semi soft floors and a transome that needs to be replaced. Since then I have painted the hull and put 2 Yami 115s (20") that have not been finished yet. The '22 has a 20" transom, so if you "raise it" I would raise it to 25" since most motors are 25" these days.

    Where are you located?
