  • Replacement, Stars and Stripes Vent Interest?

    Working on some replacement vents for my 84. Wondering if there is interest or need. I'm headed to 1/4" aluminum and planning on hammered black powdercoat. Any thoughts or input? Not sure where the price will land the more I could do at once the better the price. Some prototypes:

    I'm in! Let me know a price... I might do all three, had my 85 for thirteen years and never had one on the front. I'll get it for sure.

      That era of boat (say 79-86 ) had slightly different configurations from year to year. Make sure the year model that is being replicated for this piece will fit other years. One year the nose piece was flat, and another year they were angled. I think all of the transom vent covers are the same throughout.

      79 model - 82 model front vents are flat

      83 - 86 front vent covers are angled


      I'd like to have one set for each configuration if this comes to fruition. Thanks for the offer

        Anyone able to get me some good measurements off the flat vent on the pre 83? I'm working off my 84 only and shockingly I haven't stumbled across many other vintage MC's in the mountains of Bozeman!

          Should also be noted that I won't be able to replicate the exact profile that covers the run rail on the transom vent. I'm planning on using sections of round tube welded and smoothed on

            I think we're going to reach fruition! Got the angled bow vent dialed in. Cut them all out of 1/4" aluminum. Tacked on the pipe for the transom vent (need to get one size larger tube). Ran some numbers and it looks like $175 for the three vents aluminum,powdercoated, and shipped

                Looks like the transom vent on the 79-82 is different too so if anyone has one to measure that would be great

                  Finished two sets up today and dropped them off for powder coating. Pleased with how they turned out. My plan is alittle black silicone in the rub rail pocket.

                      I have been looking for a bow vent for my 85 for 3 years! Count me in.

                          I have two sets done at the powder coater. I'll pick them up Monday and try to get them installed and post some good pics. Sounds like there is more interest in individual pieces then whole sets so I'll work up individual piece prices. Stay tuned.

                            Hammered black powdercoat. Haven't had a chance to install yet. Bear with me
