Great looking interior! what brand of flooring is that?

When you get to working on the trailer, give me a shout for LED trailer lights and tires & wheels.

Flooring is hydro turf. Turned out better than I had hopped.

1997 vrs restoration

can anyone tell me what this is? It is not hooked up? Could it have something to do with the heating system that's on the boat? There are some wires also just hanging not sure where they came from I think they went to that fan thing but I am not sure. Looking for help.

alternator does not need all wires hooked up.. Arco makes a general alternator.. on your year boat all you need is charge to battery and exciter. is the yellow wire - yellow or yellow with a red stripe? I would trace it back to see where it terminates.. and I see a loose ground.

I also have some steam coming from the exhaust manifolds. This has me a bit nervous. I am going to replace the manifolds and risers I think the seals are bad there is a lot of rust on them. This engine is a 350 Chevy correct? Anybody know where the best place to order the manifolds from?

Wire is just yellow then a purple and grayish green. I tried to trace it back but they run in with a bunch of other wires so it's going to take a little more work than I was willing to put in tonight. It Did have a heater the previous owner took out not sure if they have anything to do with that. Here is a better pic of the wires

Yes I'd say you would be wise to replace those manifolds/risers.

Was that boat ran in salt water before? You've got lots of corrosions on some parts. (motor mounts, brackets, etc.)
