I had a 76 Sea Ray in similar condition and basically refinished all the parts I could get in the house over the winter then finished the rest of the boat as the weather got better in the spring. You'd be amazed what you can take apart and get in your basement when you really want to work on something.

Do you know which paste will match the best? Or do I have to contact them?

I would not take out the windshield...just taped off the glass and prep and paint. If you have the time... http://www.eastwood.com/hotcoat-powd...RCCODE=1SE0757 - really nice powder coat...

The screw channel - here's a link for replacement.

Replacing the foam under the windshield easy to replace...you can just loosen the windshield prop up with spacers - unless the foam gasket is gone or leaking I would let it wait..

Decals you can many places - The only thing about decals is the colors you might get. If you want to color match you'll to have them made locally. Color matching is tough.

The cups you can buy anywhere...

these caught my eye... pricey but way cool... http://www.overtons.com/modperl/prod...s&merchID=4005
Yeah, I didn't really want to send it out to get powder-coated. How does that product work that you posted?

Thanks for the links. Ha, yeah I don't need that fancy of cups. It is just a ski boat after all. I saw some SS from Bakes for only $9 that I kinda like. Although, I'm not worrying about that little stuff at the moment. We'll try and get the boat out to the lake next weekend to make sure everything works fine. Then I'll start making it look pretty.
