I had the interior re done last year and it's still holding nice. The box in the back is great. There are generally 3 of us in the boat so it gives us a place to store extra equiptment and ballast! Yes, I wakesurf behind her from time to time. Pretty damn good wake I get!

The new front seat was a huge improvement! I got sick of pulling splinters of fiberglass from mu butt every weekend! I did save the original seat & cover. The new one is nice & cush. It's fully aduustable, 360deg, up & down. I cut down the platform to get the right driving height for me.

Got a nice system going, few subs, amps and mids. Some L.E.D. lights for the night ride arouund the lake and some other hidden mods. I am really trying to keep her close to factory but with some mondern day usgrades (restro-mod).

This winter..... The original 351w comes out for an teardown & re build (trans also)... 2,237 original hours!

I grew up in Michighan skiing small private lakesbehind a boat just like this one. I said that if I could find one, in good shape..... I would buy it! She found me here in Colorado. 2nd and last owner!

That is a really sharp boat geetee, that is the color scheme that my boat is supposed to be, PO painted it and changed the graphics, now I'm trying to decide if I should/could bring it back to its true glory! Same story for me, learned to ski behind a S&S, and grew up going to Cypress Gardens. So when the opportunity came up to buy this boat you can bet there was no way I was going to miss it.

Nice boats everyone, here is my 80 Stars and Stripes. I hate to do it but it's for sale, my family has outgrown it and we need a 197 now.

Nice, you shouldn't have much trouble getting that for it....I will add though, the 197 doesn't really offer that much more room. I'd keep what you got. You'll never use the bow seating.
