Sea Nymph GLS 220

Recommended Posts

Just picked up a new ( to me ) boat. Took owners word that it was winterized 3 years ago ( last time on the water). Mercruiser 3.0 liter 130 hp alpha 1 has aluminum deck ( that sold me ) no wood Will post pics when I can get to it. Parked in back of guys garage 100 yds off the road Bought it right. Fingers crossed

I hope that it will be a good boat for you. See if you can take the plugs out and pour some transmission oil in the cylinder heads to loosen up the pistons and rings. Just let it sit for a day or two and then see if you can turn it over

More of a project boat at this point. I have a pretty good handle on marine engines. Going to be a while before I can get it home and start checking things out. Cosmetically it looks like it was taken care of. Interior is in good shape. A little fogging oil and turn engine over by hand is the ticket. Gas is probably varnish by now.

I have a 93 GLS with an alum floor. The cover over the gas tank however is wood.

Good luck with your "new" boat. I almost bought a GLS 220 with a 4 cylinder, but I didn't want a stern drive. They are nice boats.

Wow she is a beauty. I'm partial to these rigs

Been sitting there since 2013. I can’t wait to bring it home. Fingers crossed it was prepared for storage/ winterized. Previous owner assured me it was done. So far he’s been a man of his word.

Canvas is all in good shape interior is very good. Fingers crossed

The weather finally cooperated enough to work on the “new” boat. Changed oil and filter. Drained 25 gallons of 8 year old gas , soaked cylinders with marvel mystery oil. New plugs , cleaned points And crossed my fingers. Started and ran like a Swiss watch. But the raw water pump is fried. Started to overheat. New project. But no sign of freeze damage. Sigh of relief

But the way. I was under the impression it had been used in the past 3 years. Found out it had not seen the water since 2011.

Well here’s an update on the “project “. Things were good from the start. Boat was winterized. Drained 29 gallons of old gas. Fresh oil and filter. Fuel /water separator.cleaned and gapped points. New battery. Starts and purrs like a kitten. Here are a few pics. Has some issues from sitting for so long but seems sound. Am adding 12 inches to tongue. New tires. Hope to sea trial over Memorial Day before outfitting for salmon IMG_0867.JPGIMG_0868.JPGIMG_0872.JPG
