I hope it’s cheaper to fix what you have rather than buy slightly used. My mom bought this boat back in 2005 and used it every spring, summer, and fall until she died in 2013. It’s a 1984 Fisher Freedom 220. It originally came with a 60hp Mercury but when my mom purchased it there was a 40hp Mercury on it... just enough to putter around the 280 acre lake she lived on.

My husband and I have been toying with the idea of restoring/updating it and I think we may just pull the trigger. It will need new decking, carpet, possibly new furniture, and new helm(?) and definitely a new outboard motor.

How hard/expensive/marriage-ending can it be, amirite?
