Hi everybody...longtime lurker, first time poster ;)


I've had my boat for a little over a year now and it's been great so far. Very few problems. 19' Stars and Stripes with a 351.


Back when I was a kid my Dad and Grandpa had older style boats so I've always liked the look, and my friends and I like water sports so with the tower it's like the best of both worlds for us.

I'm slowly but surely making progress on a few changes and projects and have been using the site for reference, so I wanted to thank all of you. Has been a great resource :toast:

Any questions, comments, suggestions are welcome. Thanks for looking!

Might that boat have 4 batteries, a ski pylon that's been cut off, and a skull for a thottle knob???

LOL that's the legend!! You bought it off guy named mark right? I pretty much learned to wakeboard behind your boat, first 2 3's... Backroll. Ah, the memories. I think we met at east fork the day you came out to see it. Congrads man that's a great boat. I'm good friends with the previous 2 owners and it was well taken care of. Need some new pics of her tho.

Hey Creeper, glad you finally came out of the shadows. Nice looking boat. Mine didn't have the stars on it when I got it and now I realize how naked it looked. I used to really liked how it looked. Then I put the stars on it and all I could say was wow. Definitely need more pics.

Thanks! And yeah, I don't know how long the stars have been gone...a few years before I got her I'm sure ;)


And I see we're from the same area...do you boat on the river?

Yep that was me...the legend lives haha! I figured somebody would might recognize it since I see a lot of MCs in the area.

And yeah, she has been great. I could tell all of the owners had taken great care of it and I couldn't be happier. Did Mark get another boat yet?

Thanks, I haven't visited too many times, but I like to see how a forum works before I join and start posting since they all have a different way of doing things.


I'm glad there's another similar boat on here...are you the only one?

I'll definitely be searching your threads for pics and other info when I get a chance :toast:

There are a handful of boats from the 70's here. It is a great site full of tons of information, and some fun and B.S. from time to time. The search function can be a little challenging to find what you are looking for sometimes. More than happy to help you wherever I can.
