The new style interior looks...busy. Too much going on in terms of color blocks all over the place. Granted, the 02/03 is rather monotone (my 03 is identical to the photos), but what about keeping...

As far as the Roush supercharged motor, I think Supra, Moomba were using the Raptor 6.2 motor in their boats starting in 2015 or 16. Not sure about other makes.

I looked in to something similar with my old PS190 with closed cooling. SkiDim said it's not possible, but I'm with 88 PS190 above, seems like you could used the raw water coming off the heat...

Will the owner meet you at the local lake? Slide his boat off, slide yours on to check fit.

I think with the 83, there's the possibility of another stringer job- I think they're still wood until 86. I can't tell from the pictures, but it looks in fair condition for the year. Maybe you can...

For the rare times it gets that cold in CA, I put my engine on the hose late in the day and run it up to operating temp for a while. For one night, there should be enough latent heat in the block to...

I looked through the Dualiner website, and I'm curious on the comparison page, how do they argue that a spray liner doesn't protect the bed from impacts and dents? I thought that was the whole point...

I would imagine they 'LOL @ Americans with guns', given the number of high profile shootings here. Having said that, this is no laughing matter- 50-some dead, hundreds injured.

If it hasn't been done yet, think about upgrading your ignition with the Pertronix kit- you'll go from points and condenser to electronic ignition and a high voltage coil.
That's a really nice boat!...

So I wonder how much prices of the plebeian XLT and Lariat versions are going to be affected? Seems like new trucks are already priced beyond reason, this will just exacerbate that.

Overall it looks like it's in decent shape, and for $2K, you did well!
While you're replacing the starter and solenoid, I'd check your battery and starter cables too. Looks like a fair amount of...

No real experience with this, but I would start by replacing the impeller, then putting it back in the lake and just let the engine idle for a while. Maybe run it around at low speed to flow more...

If it matters, Costas are made in FL. I think Maui Jims are US-made too.
I'm currently shopping Costas. I've been wearing Natives for 5 years, it's time for a change.

Jbeams2- I have a very different boat, a Maristar 230. I have 1100s in each locker, the KGB bag in the floor and a 750 under the front seats. I haven't gotten the wave dialed in- it's short, with...

I dunno, I like the idea. It's a little big, I'd prefer something maybe 7x7 or so. With two boys on the boat, we stop to swim and relax, and the extra shade would be a bonus, especially when...

Bottom wheel looks more refined, higher-end. The wide spokes on the top wheel make it look heavy and kludgy. Plus the all black looks cool- it's a nice contrast to all the silver of the dash.
