The good news is my family took on my sunk boat - towed it back to East Tn, found a wrench that knew Holman Moody engines and now (very long story short) I have a brand new 72' engine in her, built from the block out, bored 20 over, etc. I am still working on the house so the boat has only seen the water twice this year.
Fantastic ending to a tough turn of events. Sorry to hear all you've gone through.

Has the makings for a country song.

That can be a test of patience. When I got my boat, the cracked block had been replaced with a good engine, but one of the original exhaust manifolds had a crack in it. Took me a bit to figure out where the water was coming from, aside from all the other issues. I eventually got all the bugs out, but it seemed like it would take forever.

1977 S&S Red White & Blue

Hello From Oklahoma,

Just noticed this thread and thought you may like to see a resurection. I skied behind this boat in 1977 when it was new and I purchased it in 1978 with only 65 hours. It now has more than 2000 hours. It was a work horse in tournaments, ski shows and practice and was the main tow boat for the OK Skiers based at Ft. Gibson Lake in northeastern Okla. I was embarrased at the condition I allowed it to get to and last year with the help of my son in law, the Master Painter, we refinished the boat. It looks almost as good as it did when I bought it. When I get an "on the lake pic" I will post it.
