    I was at a large Lake Erie dealer looking for project motors last summer and they told me Blackbird buys ALL of their dead motors.
    Shows up w/a huge enclosed trailer and hauls off everything.

    I'd rather be competitive w/junk I built in my garage than win w/stuff I bought.


    I refuse to allow common sense to interfere w/my boat buying decisions.

    Yep.
    I see them on Craig’s all the time.
