I Guys, I just picked up (What I was told is a 1984 20' model). The 150 XP Evinrude is Mechaninaly sound and all cylinders are firing at 100psi which i'm told is what they are capable of (as they were low compression engines). SO basically I think I just bought a solid and mechanically sounds boat, that needs cosmetic work.....its a project! I haven't even taken that boat for a ride yet! I currently own a 2005 Malibu wakebaord boat, and was craving a seperate ski boat to slalom in the ski course with, so I lucked out with a hydrodyne. it was that or a J-Craft which i grew up learning on. I'm really excited with this boat, as it seems like such a rugged ski boat for the family and our small Muskoka ON lake!!!! I'll attach current photos, but basically the boat needs a good paint job. I plan on using a Red and White color combo, with a roll on interlux paint. im open to suggestions for a good and easily applied product. the upholstery is terrible and the carpet stinks, and could use a replacement. As far as I can tell (and what the marina told me) is that the floors and transom are solid. So i'm planing on doing new flooring. not sure if i want a rugged vinyl floor or a new glued down carpet. My hope with this posting, is to get some adivce and experience while I try and get this boat looking like a 10+ thanks. looking forward to bringing the tired boat, back to life. AND to skiing behind it before the season wraps up.
