Hello all,
1980 Stars & Stripes restoration project up for sale. A combination of events over the last year really took a toll on her, up to this summer's tropical storm flooding our canal and basically adding insult to injury.

She ran earlier this summer and gave us a few more good pulls. Right now she isn't starting and besides a LOT of TLC needs an oil leak fixed (likely around oil pan as I am noting oil in bilge and water in oil).

If anyone knows of someone looking to restore and old classic let me know, or of a good place to list boats like this other than Team Talk. I'll take any reasonable offer.

I'm embarrassed by the attached pic as I didn't even give it a decent wash after I pulled her out, but here she is...

How much do you want for her? Got pics of the inside?

I'll provide pics of the inside as soon as I can, but as you can imagine it doesn't look much better than the exterior. Needs new cushions and floor, besides the engine work.

Hey TX Wind, and anyone else out there. I'm asking an even $1000...

I'm in beautiful Boynton Beach, Florida, on the east coast between Ft. Lauderdale and West Pam Beach.

Hello all,
Thanks to you who have shown some interest. Here are some pics of the interior. As I mentioned, you can see how the floor and upholstery have been pretty beat up lately. It's amazingly fast how it spreads once it takes root - last summer no signs of any issues at all. I'm sorry to have let it get this bad.
