I picked up a 21' Duckworth Silverwing in need of a little TLC. It has a lot of options that I really wish my current boat had but is not running very good right now. My wife is not to happy about having two 21' river boats in the driveway so I need to expedite getting this running top notch and put my Hewescraft up for sale.
Background is that the boat was stolen and engine and her unit stripped out. The good: Welded tandem axle torsion axle trailer, heavier construction then my Hewescraft, trim tabs, nice swim deck, and Flowscan gauge. The previous owner installed a rebuilt 302 redline and Kodiak 3 stage jet but skimped on the details, 2 barrel automotive carb, heater lines not connected, wiring mess, etc.
For starters I need a 4 barrel marine carb, thinking about an Edelbrock. The impellers are also in fairly rough shape, is it worth it to have them rebuilt or get new ones? Performance wise how well do the Kodiak pumps work compared to American turbine?
