1983 Stars & Stripes restoration project
 
4 Attachment(s)
Hello from Australian Waterski Magazine. We just wanted to let the members of this forum know about a restoration we are doing on a 1983 Stars & Stripes, fitted with the original 351 PCM with PowerSlot option.
The boat was in poor, non-running condition so we're looking to do a full restoration including new paint / gelcoat restore, new interior, running gear & trailer, involving some local businesses who advertise with us.
Anyway, will post some pics of the hull / paint shortly as it has been completed.
Here are the pics of the boat as we found it. The colour scheme will be white / dark blue (metal flake) rather than the double blue in these pics once complete.
Interested to hear any views or thoughts.

Looks great. On the edge of my seat waiting for more! Good luck!

I'd be interested in what's left of that old ski mirror. Please email Keith at keith3613@tx.rr.com.

Is that an early '83 with wood stringers or a late model with the fiberglass system? Looking forward to your updates!

Hi Kieth. I think we'll hang onto everything for the moment. Tom

That's the correct link for our website. We haven't got anything online at the moment however. But will do as we start to make progress.

I'll get back to you on that. The boat might even be an 82 now I think of it. I'll check next time I see it. Floor feels pretty solid anyway, so hopefully stringers won't need to be replaced.
