Tough crowd here today. Must be more Packer fans around than I thought.

Could it be 29 hears of engine heat? Neighbors '83 looks identical.

It's in Watervliet, MI on Paw Paw Lake. I kept it up there in heated storage.

Like I said before, I don't need to sell it by any means. It may even come back to Chicago for a new interior, the boat is mechanically perfect.

Wish you the best with your sale or if you decide to keep it as it looks like an excellent well taken care of stars and stripes
No offense taken!

It's a great boat, I doubt I'd sell it anyway! Just figured I would post a great S&S example up for the community if anyone is in the market. If I could get up there and use it more it wouldn't even be a thought in my mind!

That's my old boat!! It was a runner for sure. I would have to say it never overheated, unless the valve covers and intake were repainted. I say that because when the pcm's overheat the valve covers look like they have varnish on them. They turn A shade darker. When I traded my 82 in for a new 87 the mastercraft dealer asked if my boat had overheated, just by looking at valve covers. My 83 overheated after the water pump belt flew off when the boat was running. It was hot enough to melt holes in the exhaust hoses. I ran the 83 another 12-13 years with never having an engine problem.
At one time maybe the solonoid took a dump? Heck, even the stickers are on it. Cheap plastic?That boat ran great, strong and the fiberglass was by far the nicest I have ever seen for a boat more than a few years old. Most of the interior was original except the seat bottoms. On many of the dashes of that era, the skier times and picture of the skier are faded or un readable. This one looks like it had hardly ever been in the sun, which is exactly like the fiberglass looks. Somebody will get a nice boat!

Didn't know you were on here Tim! Thanks for the post!

I highly doubt I'll end up selling it! Driving around in a few other Stars & Stripes this past summer made me realize how great of a boat I actually got!

The cover on my 82 looks the same as well and it hasn't overheated. Engine heat and time takes its toll o the cover.

A solid classic in a nice color.....I say keep it!
Unless you're a die-hard course skier, then upgrade in 2014 when the new Prostar comes out! (but it doesn't sound like you're a die-hard)
