1983 Stars and Stripes Restoration

Ok so I picked up my 1983 Stars and Stripes today. The boat has been sitting for 10+ years. Luckily for me most of that was indoors. My plans are kind of vague at this point due to a pretty tight budget. First and foremost is getting it up an running again. I will keep this thread updated with progress pictures and issues as they arrive. On to the pictures.

You got a lot of nice stuff to work with there! Good find. If the Cheez-Its came with it, you got a great deal - no matter the price! :-)

Great looking MC! A little 303 on that motor cover and seats will do wonders. Look toward to seeing her shined up and on the water.

Sounds like when I got my boat. Funds were tight too so stage one was making it safely operational. Working on the pretty stuff was stage two.
