Hey everyone.. Ive been browsing the forum for a few weeks, once I found it. Just purchased my first inboard yesterday, ive been looking for the right one for a while now.

1981 S&S, powder blue w/blue metalflake.

Im really excited.. Bought it from a fellow up in NW ga that seemed like he knew his stuff! Ive got the powerslot tranny, 4 blade prop, 351, etc, etc..

Going to head out in a bit for my first run... pictures will come soon..

You must have bought the boat from the guy in Calhoun that has all of the old mastercrafts in his front yard.

Yes Stars, it was from him!

thank you Tim, I am on Lanier, well. right near it, so that is where most of my water experiance takes place.

I had to put a new carb on it, now, it runs like a top! It needs some cleanup on it, goin gto put a small sound system in it, and get it back to gleaming like it should.

Thanks for the love guys, Its covered up, Ill be uncovering it in the next few days and take some nice shots of it.

I accually have to do some work to the trailer. My driveway has a little dip in it, and when I pull in or out it would hit the ruder and prop. We had to stop traffic and use some boards to get it the drive so it wouldnt mangle the prop.. (its a nice 4 blade 14 something.. i cant remember)

Im Have to weld a few pieces of tube so it will drag on that, and not hit any more, hopefully I can do that today..

Here is a quick shot right after I put it in the driveway.. No cleanup or anything.

Trailer needs paint, I know, good thing, it is just surface rust. Im, thinking the same blue as the dark metalflake on the boat.
