1979 Penn Yan 20 ft Tunnel Drive.  Mercruiser V8 Inboard.  Sitting on a 1990's roller shorelander trailer in good condition.  This board sat since 09, I bought it in fall of 2011 as a project which I have not started and may never start so it is reluctantly for sale, but I need to pare down my inventory.  Motor status is unknown, don't know if it fires or not, have not gotten beyond issue with key/starter.  But straight inboards/tunnel drives are simple. Boat is in very good condition, couple chips near bow other than that in good shape.  Penn Yan emblems on it etc.  Windshield fine.  

Has a heavy wood swim platform and electric/hydraulic trim tabs.  

This boat has the Mercruiser V8 w/velvet drive, I have not determined the exact motor but Chevrolet V8's are listed on the Mercruiser chart for this year boat.
I believe it has the 305-198 hp.

Have registration for boat-registered to me, no registration on trailer needs to be registered as a homemade.
Boat is all there, for someone looking for a Penn Yan to restore and drive around this summer or use as a fishing machine, this is your boat.

Asking $1900.00 or reasonable offer.  Late winter negotiable. Boat located in Dunkirk, NY
Trailer is going to need tires which I may address once the weather breaks.
Likewise I intend on tracking down issues which may prevent the motor from being fired up, line starter lines, battery cables, ignition etc.

Just an FYI NY state does not allow you to register trailers as homemade anymore. They must actually be homemade with paperwork from an inspection station stating that they are in fact homemade. Unfortunately they stopped allowing it because it was to easy to register hot trailers.

It may be a ford 302 motor.  My buddy has the same year and boat with a 302 ford.  Is the distributor at the front or back of motor?  If it is at the back most likely a chevy motor front means it's a ford.

The form to do the homemade registration is on the website as of last week. If it is under 1000 lbs, you can do it.

 

Over 1000 lbs is a problem and you can't do it or have extreme difficulty doing it. I know someone who has a very nice aluminum tandem car trailer that is in the over 1000 lb club and is having that issue or issues.  

 

If someone wants the form number and instructions, send me a pm.

 

As for the motor issue, in the late 1970's on of the most popular Mercruiser engines was the 302 producing 188 hp.  It was replaced by a 305 Chevy which produced 198 hp.

Then register it then. I know for a fact that you can't. I'm not trying to be a jerk but I don't want someone thinking you can register it as homemade because you can't trust me I tried

A potential purchaser can do their own research on this topic or any of the other issues I presented in the ad.(like any potential motor issue or the purchase of four brand new tires which I took care of this week as a thrown in to sell this package).   Not trying to hide anything, just posting a boat that I would like to sell this spring.  I am very appreciative of LOU providing this forum to do that.   Thank you. 

 

If we get enough of a thaw before it sells, I will likely go through the registration process on the trailer.
