Not sure. Try calling Donnie Bennett at 865-982-9589 and see if he can find one for you. He's in the business, located in east TN. He is also in the Marketplace with a few items for sale and I think "contact seller" will get an e-mail to him.


Yes Sir, the late 82 had a plush interior. The stringers were wood but were covered with glass if I recall correctly. That is the only boat I ever regret selling. Sold it to a guy in Nashville. I'd love to see it aain.

I have a near identical 1982 Stars & Stripes and have been unable to find another one anywhere near like ours between the engine cover the curved windshield and not the deluxe interior. Is the gelcoat of yours also a light blue color? What are your plans for the interior? I still have the original fiberglass seat frames but they need some work. Look forward to see/hear some more of your progress.

That engine looks so sweet and like an original new one. Is that the engine that came with the boat new? Looks like you got a nice powerslot as well. keep up great work.
If for some reason you start to believe you are a person with influence, just try ordering somebody else's dog around.
