1987 Fisher SV18 CC

Thanks Earl, I will look there when I get home. Honestly, I haven't even looked for it yet. Dale, thanks! that information from I boats is about all that a google search turns up on this boat. Doesn't matter, as long as it floats! WV- I ended up getting it for less. No additional wood to rot, and th...

1987 Fisher SV18 CC

Well, It followed me home. It looks like it will need a transom, which I just got thru doing on my starcraft. The really nice thing about this boat, is that the transom core is the only wood thing on the boat, other than a few trim pieces. the deck is all aluminum. The boat is sitting on a Karavan C...

1987 Fisher SV18 CC

Hi Guys, I have a chance to buy a 1987 Fisher SV18 CC aluminum center console. It is just the hull, on a Karavan Classic trailer, and I think I can get it for under $900. The boat looks pretty solid. It is bigger than my Starcraft, and I am looking for a little bigger boat, to go out on Long island ...

66 Starcraft Sportsman Transom Redo and Repower

Friday after work, I made plans to meet a coworker at the local reservoir, where he was playing with his stand up jet ski, to take the boat on a little shakedown cruise. At dad's garage, I had just put gas in the tank for the first time with the fuel water separator, and I must have pumped the ball ...

Frogs

We did catch frogs and make frogs legs at my parents cottage. We would go out in the canoe after dark, and spot them with a flashlight and shoot them with a old crappy pellet gun.

Frogs

Funny, My mom used to make us eat a little bit of everything. I wasn't very fussy, but there were a few things I don't care for. One of them is beets. As a kid, Mom always made me eat one, "She used to say you have to make sure you don't like them. I would eat one slice, make a face, and that would ...

First Post: 66 Starcraft Sportsman Transom Redo and Repower

Yes, it is a 12 gallon. it gets pretty heavy when full. I have filled it in the boat, and I have taken the tank out to go to the gas station. I suppose I should look into grounding the tank if I am filling it in the boat...

1986 Johnson 50 hp parts motor (Central MA pickup)

Has anyone taken you up on your offer? I would like to add that I have a 1986 Johnson 40hp available for parts as well. it is complete, and probably is an easy fix for someone who knows what they are doing. maybe someone can pick up both motors and make one good one of the two. I believe the 40 and ...

First Post: 66 Starcraft Sportsman Transom Redo and Repower

Last night I spent some time over at the garage. I initially had planned to have everything together and take the boat for a shakedown cruise last night. However, I felt like dog doodoo on Monday, so I didn't do anything on the boat. Tuesday, I went to put together the fuel line/filter assembly, to ...

First Post: 66 Starcraft Sportsman Transom Redo and Repower

I had a great weekend. Friday night I got the splash well cleaned up and painted. After the paint was on, I hammered in the two aluminum drain tubes that I made to replace the two drain tubes that I destroyed while removing them to take the transom out. About 10:30pm my shop dog decided she had enou...

First Post: 66 Starcraft Sportsman Transom Redo and Repower

Last night I spent some time straightening the top cap out, and finished nailing that in. I cleaned it up a little bit with a wire wheel. Then I spent the rest of my night painting the inner and outer transom, and the backer board for the outboard. The Result is starting to look more like a boat! IM...

First Post: 66 Starcraft Sportsman Transom Redo and Repower

I found some pictures of the last time I did any work on my hull, 2 years ago, I developed a leak where the transom meets the keel. Years of gunk sitting there on the inside had corroded that area to the point of being holy. I inspected the rest of the bottom of the hull, and found that this was the...
