Welcome to Team Talk and congrats on a great looking boat.

A couple quick answers :

You most likely have a 351W, although some came with a 302.

Top speed should be about 44 or 45mph

There have been lots of discussions about which oil to run. Do a search and you will find lots of reading. I use Valvoline 20w/50.

I would replace the tracking fin. Not much flexibility there.

www.skidim.com will become a great source for parts and info. Get a catalog ASAP - it will become your go to book.

Search for gel-coat threads - again lots of reading. Pretty simple to do if you have some patience.
