I vote yes.

The ones I have seen are Teleflex...chrome trim, etc. The tachometer would have "Teleflex" printed on the face.

I looked back though some photos I have of the 73 year make and they all show as described above.

You have a nice find in the 73. I am working with a guy now on a 72 year make. He's doing stringers and the restoration on out.

I will say around US$4-5K for your 72. It is a smaller and simpler boat. You can stop right here or read a little more.

Bare hull to new out to the rub rail...there is a lot to be considered and how detailed you want to get.

A few rough order of magnitude estimates (- / - 50%) all US dollars

Materials:
  • 4 stringers - $175 for Douglas Fir (total) 2-2x6x10 and 2-2x8x12
  • Epoxy resin and hardener - 10 gallon - buy in incremental kits so not to over buy - 6 gallon kit (4 gallons resin + 2 gallons hardeners) $318 per kit. I used 12 gallons on the last one I did. Total around $700.
  • Fiber cloth - Biaxial 1708 - 17oz. w/ 8 oz. mat + 45 x - 45 x 50 in. - 15 yards that is 45" wide. Get them to cut it into 5 - 9" wide rolls - $150. You could need more depending on your plan.
  • Silica - 10 pounds - $85
  • 1/4" chop strand - 10 pounds - $36
  • Ply wood flooring to go back in - Builder grade ply wood coated with liquid epoxy both sides. $30 per 4x8 sheet - 5 sheets - $150
  • Carpet - $325 for 20 ounce short cut pile - 8.5" x 25' roll
  • New upholstery - $2,000 - 3,000. Last 19Skier I did was $2,000, out the door.
  • Miscellaneous - gloves, hardware, screws, loom, touch-up, etc...$500
  • Wiring - $1,000 - tinned wire (various gauge), battery cables, various size end connectors, heat gun for the shrink connectors, quality wire strippers, quality crimp tool, dielectric grease, etc.
  • Other Miscellaneous - $150 - acetone, mixing cups, mixing pans, baggies, Liquid Nail, 100% silicone, door shims, etc.
  • Power tools you may or may not have - electric planer, front blade oscillating saw (ROCKWELL Sonicrafter 32-Piece Corded 3.5-Amp Variable Speed Oscillating Multi-Tool Kit is a must), 6-inch level, 4-foot level, 6-foot level, painter's tape. painter's plastic sheets, 3/8 in. 90 angle drill attachment, dead blow hammer, measuring tape, hot glue gun and ample sticks of glue, heat gun, split wire loom, zip ties,
  • All new water and exhaust hoses...tip to tail, new ventilation hose -$450

If you build new seat bases, etc, add another sheet of ply wood (and figure a little more epoxy resin).

You will also need to consider how drunk and addicted you become to the engine...starter, ignition system, battery setup, engine performance enhancements (new carburetor, new intake manifold, new exhaust manifolds, new cam) new risers, new hoses, thermostat, oil pressure sending unit, belts, impeller.

I had a solid engine at 900 hours that came with the last one so a new starter, new battery, impeller, and electronic ignition conversion kit was about all I did to it. I did indeed re-wire the entire boat. Everything wiring I replaced (fuse panel as well - $40). New seat slides, seat heating pads for driver and passenger seats - $75 for four pads and switches (included in the kits).

So I'll stop here with the caveat that I am sure there is something I have overlooked without my BOM in front of me. Last one I did on a 19 foot boat, everything I did cost me an additional $7,200 over the cost of the boat. Your mileage may vary. For the final cost I mentioned, I did a lot of things that went above and beyond the call of need but that's just me.

Labor: $0.00 - My estimated time for what I did is 5-600 hours over the course of 13 months steady gettin' it with a few pauses for one thing or another but I stayed at it. I also worked exclusively by myself. With two people, time can be cut in half. With three people time savings diminish to maybe cut by 1/4. The third party is more in the way than only two people. No lolly-gagging. Do your stringers in the fall going into winter. Temperature and humidity in the spring going into summer are not conducive to wood work with resin and cloth.

Clean-up every day and every step of the way. Photographs take a lot of time. Internet and social research takes a lot of time. For reference, I took 3,371 photos of the build. Lots of time on the internet and telephone. I stayed away from YouTube as much as possible. That becomes a distraction of what you are learning and decide as you go. Plan far far ahead prior to doing each step. Stay four to five steps ahead in planning or you'll do more rework. Been there.

You can learn it all right here There are multiple people here that have done the work if they are willing to take time to assist.

If you want to do it. I or others can get you through it.

Once you get started, it is easy peasy. Once the engine is out of the boat, everything else is easy access.
