25 foot

2007 with a 2008 Mercury with less than 100 hours and garage stored when I bought her. New condition and beautiful. People spend BIG money on toys and then never use them and then sell them to people like me for pennies on the dollar

The truck. Not so much as I bought it new but I'm going to keep it for a LONG time.

Note the engine wasn't able to actually run itself yet--that came later. Eventually a big diesel made about the same HP as a "modern" (I use the term loosely) Hardley. Years later, realizing what a horrible POS he had unleashed on the world, he did the honorable thing and stepped off a boat--at night in the middle of the English Channel. They found his body two weeks later.

So, enjoy your loud noisemaker as it belches all that black smoke, which it will as soon as you figure out how to make the fuel pump deliver more fuel than the engine can burn well, in the desperate attempt to find a few more ponies.
