Should be a fun project indeed!
Man I honestly think that a really good cleaning and several coats of wax is what I would do for a great looking survivor.

hurricane matt Be pretty sweet with some casting platform on the bow! Glad to see an older solid boat being used. Mines even older than that [emoji23]

ShawnQ Awesome boats. Stable and light, they'll run skinny!

If you need a nice new acrylic or hdpe switch panel, cnc cut hatches / storage, or wiring work... let me know!

Looking forward to the updates.

We did a compression check on it and if I remember right it was closer to 140. I don’t think the original owner ran it much before it sat for at least 10 years. I’m ready to help start this box [emoji1689]

saltwatersensations Haven't done too much. Cleaned it and installed new tires. I did get the motor running. Carbs should be done from getting a complete rebuild any day now. Ordered a new fuel tank (19gal), steering cable and helm and an updated SS steering wheel. Rebuilt the fuel pump and water pump. Got the tilt and trim to function. Picking up controls/harness today. Plan is to raise the console 8-10". After I get that done I should move a lot quicker.

Plumbwader I had that exact model. It will run skinny, it is super stable and will beat you to death in even the smallest chop. I wish I still owned it. Good luck, you got a good boat there.
