Stars and Stripes build, 1st post
Hi all, I'll go ahead and say thanks for all the help already. I've been stealing help from past posts the second I bought my boat. I recently purchased a 1984 Stars and Stripes, but have found issues every single time I've taken it out. So far I have gotten a new battery, new alternator, new impeller, new hoses, blower hoses, and a new blower. Got a great steal on this boat (i think..). Any help with what parts are likely to fail would be a great help. The guy I bought it from was a good welder, but I'm starting to think he was poor with boats. The impeller had basically exploded and the exhaust hoses had holes the size of baseballs in them... Would a K&N be better than my stock flame arrestor? And does anybody know if there are premade skins for these boats?
