1966 Owens Princess available to a good home!
Make me an offer. It doesn’t have to be much . I don’t have any more room for her at the shop, soon to be totally leased out. It would be great to see her up at Quincy this year! She is in really good shape overall. Here’s the list of what has been done since she last hit the water ( about 8 years) :
Chevy 350ci 250hp motor with 0 hours since overhaul by First Mate/ Marshall engines
New stainless steel prop shaft
Reinstalled dripless prop shaft
New A10 fuel lines to replace old steel lines
New stainless steel exhaust and rubber mufflers
New exhaust manifolds
Recent plug wires and plugs
Other great things:
Electronic distributor… no annoying points to deal with
No old fuel in the tank
Solid ventilated headliner in cabin, beautiful…… no saggy perforated headliner
Stereo with hidden FM antennae
Beautiful custom bow tie curtains for cabin …. newly drycleaned
Additional 500 gph bilge pump installed, total 2
Newer electric spotlight, and dual horn
Bottom still has plenty life left in it, 1/2 inch Douglas fir plywood
Transmission seals replaced, Velvet drive 1:1 ratio.. simple
Transmission cooler has been rebuilt
LED Navigation and anchor lights
I think it has an 80 gallon fuel tank, might be wrong about that. Completely cleaned out several years ago
Trailer has LED lights and brand new tires with about 300 ft on them, bearings repacked
Shore power hookup.
There is very little work to do to get this thing back in water again. After about 3 days she will be swelled up again, and probably never set off the bilge pump in the process.
I got the starter wet last year cleaning it out so it may need an overhaul. Other than that the new bilge pump works in auto but not manually, might need a switch. That’s it!
