I got this 88 V170 with a 120 mercruiser and an alpha one gen one out drive and trailer for free I've put $60 into it.all my vinyl and seats /doghouse is shot everything else is brand new. It was 85% restored then abandoned at the shop I work at for 4 years so I put a lein on it. And got a title. I was wondering if I should build a sundeck? with a bench seat or just restore the boat seats the way it came? What I call a sundeck is were the engine cover or "doghouse" covers the entire width of the boat And is as high and wide as it. Id end up with a big bench with storage storage by the engine and two bucket wrap around captain chairs. The bow seating id just restore. Any inputs? I'll be posting updates as I go thanks!!!!
