1978 MasterCraft Stars and Stripes

1978 MasterCraft Stars and Stripes. Green over light green. Vinyl is white and grey with grey carpet. Stringers and floor done prior to my ownership. Spent its entire life in South Eastern Wisconsin. Previously owned by 2 separate individuals and was told it was stored inside a climate controlled garage. Under my ownership it was always stored inside with the exception of two weeks up north Wisconsin per year with cover on it. 224 hours on engine rebuilt by professional via prior owner. Starter replaced in 2010 prior to purchase. Unknown hours on Boat. (1300 from memory reported by prior owner). Purchased in July 2010 (200 hours) with the following upgrades over the past years not because of requirement but more so as proactive measures for reliable boating fun. I am sure I missed something but this is what I recall.
• Wax (annually)
• Cut and buff (annually)
• Carpet cleaned (annually)
• Impeller (annually)
• Oil and trans (annually)
• Plugs (annually)
• New bow mount, Prop Protector, Winch, Chains, etc –Trailer (2012)
• Sand, and painted trailer with oil based primer and enamel (2012)
• New Trailer wheels (4), tires (with 2 spares), lugs, caps, and new mounts (2013)
• New Trailer bearings, hubs, bearing buddies and annual grease. (2014)
• New Trailer tongue jack (2012) and MasterCraft pole covers.
• New Trailer Wiring (all gutted/replaced); All NEW LED lights (always work – 2012)
• Riser gaskets, seals, stainless bolts, and associated exhaust work (2014)
• Keel Gard (2014)
• All new Boat LED night driving lights and rear post (2014)
• CNC prop and OEM spare (Both refurbished 2017)- New nut and pin.
• Fuel sending unit, fuel line and gaskets (2014)
• Optima Blue Top Battery (2017)
• Hoses, clamps, and associated water lines (2013)
• Belts, tension, verification of charging system and operation (2013)
• Complete motor detail with new valve covers, gaskets, intake, etc (2013)
• Carb rebuild by Peter (2012), fuel pump, (2012)
• New speedo glass and breathers (2013)
• New wires, New Mallory Electronic Distributor ($$), Coil, resistor and electronics (2013)
• New modern fuse block, connections, and associated wiring with battery clamps (2012)
• All new dash wiring, rebuilt tach, switches, etc (2011)
• New steering wheel and shift knob (2012)
• Refurbished tach (2013)
• Speedo Pickups (2014)
• Prop seal (2014)
• OEM cover dry cleaned professionally (2014)

All OEM and spares included showing the work was done with the exception of the distributor – I needed to supply original to get the replacement due to inability to find advancement springs by Prestolite.
Clocked 44 MPH on regular occasions as it currently stands with the CNC prop. Use annually for skiing, boarding, and pleasure. Not used enough to justify. Loved and maintained with care. Probably only put 5 hours per year. Pictures tell the story.
Full Disclosure –One old picture showing the cover installed. Could use a shock that was used from the trailer brakes. Trailer brakes removed as I never needed them. Otherwise ready to run!
No time for picture collectors and time wasters.
NO hurry to sell. Asking $10,000 firm
(No PM's Please)

I have a 25 foot garage and my 83 fits without removing the platform or having a folding tongue. Go for it!
