  • 1983 Stars and Stripes Restoration

    Ok so I picked up my 1983 Stars and Stripes today. The boat has been sitting for 10+ years. Luckily for me most of that was indoors. My plans are kind of vague at this point due to a pretty tight budget. First and foremost is getting it up an running again. I will keep this thread updated with progress pictures and issues as they arrive. On to the pictures.

      You got a lot of nice stuff to work with there! Good find. If the Cheez-Its came with it, you got a great deal - no matter the price! :-)

              Great looking MC! A little 303 on that motor cover and seats will do wonders. Look toward to seeing her shined up and on the water.

                  Sounds like when I got my boat. Funds were tight too so stage one was making it safely operational. Working on the pretty stuff was stage two.

                        The box of Cheez-It's weren't 10 years old were they???

                        Hopefully it doesn't need much to run!

                          Todays update:
                          • Removed interior
                          • Removed gas tank
                          • Replaced fuel lines
                          • Replaced impeller
                          • Replaced water lines
                          • Pulled steering cable
                          • Installed new ignition switch

                          Can someone please post a picture of the orientation of the raw water pump. I am pretty sure mine is in the correct way but I just want to double check. (I forgot to mark the orientation)

                          A couple pics...


                          And everything tucked in...

                            Any suggestions on how to get the rusted plugs out? I hit them all with some liquid wrench but it is not helping at all. I don't want to tug too hard and snap a plug off inside the block.
