1985 Cajun Restoration, Pictures And Video

5 posts in this topic

Hey everyone, last year i bought this 85' Cajun with a 90 hp mercury for $500 and it was in need of alot of restoration. I replaced all the wiring, cut and fiberglassed new floors, installed new carpet, changed lower unit fluid and water pump, installed new trim motor and installed the bow mount trolling motor. I took it out for the first time today and it ran great. On gps it hit 44mph which is alot faster than my previous 14 ft v-hull and 4hp. Getting use to the tilt/trim was tough but it got easier with practice. Here are some before and after pics and a couple videos.
