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.
