New S&S

I finally did it...

I've had a major crush on these boats since the early 90's. And today I bought an '82.

Ill put up a little tease pic. Don't worry, there will be a lot more to come.

Big day tomorrow.

Going through the mechanicals. Impeller, new batt, ign., etc.
A lot of polishing.
Gonna be a busy week. She's gonna get wet next Friday!! (Ideally)


I've been lurking around here a LOT the last year or so. I've seen some awesome boats, information and knowledge. I hope you guys can help me out with some S&S specific things as they come up.

Thanks in advance!!

It is. And it's really in decent shape down the side. The stern and bow are gonna take some effort to get back though.

Red Flake is a win - hope you can clean it up. Did you tow it all the way from NV to Redwood city?

First question for you guys.

This one has the textured finish on the cap (witch I'm stoked about).
Any advice on bringing the luster back into it? Again, its in very good shape, just aged.


Just for a little background on me... This is my fourth boat over the last 20 years. All hot boats. All too loud and fast. (Kinda kiddin). I spend a LOT of time on the water. My last one was a pretty rowdy Sanger Superjet. Gettin old now. I want to run all day without the mental/physical workout. So, enter my old secret love affair. The S&S.

It is the MM. I won't even go into some of the good times that thing has seen....


I'll bring back the red flake.

Good eyes spotting the outta state #s.

Which brings up question 2. Anyone dealt with transferring a boat into CA?
