Help Tip: If you have a question that has not been answered to your satisfaction in the archives, it is always best to start a new thread of your own. By starting your own thread, you will receive the maximum number of views by forum members.

Below are some additional forum policies in hopes of all iboats members will follow, Thank you.

1. Please do not reply to old threads or hijack existing threads. Old threads of a technical nature are like a library book, Please do not write in them.

2. Old threads should be considered archives and used for reference only. Please do not reply to them.

3. Do not take over someone elseís thread (aka hijack) with your own question, even if it is similar. If you have a question that has not been covered to your satisfaction in the archives, it is always best to start a new thread of your own.

4. If you have a question for the original poster (OP) and the thread is over 30 days old, send the OP a PM, he may not even visit the forums any longer, or may not notice your question in the old thread.

5. By starting your own thread, you will receive the maximum number of views by forum helpers that may not even notice your question when itís posted at the end of someone elseís thread. And those answers will be specific to your particular issue.

6. Please do not post to threads that have been inactive for more than 3 months unless you are the original poster. We have very active forums and any thread that remains inactive for that long should be considered "dead". It is especially confusing when there is an entirely new question posted to an old thread.

7. Posting at the end of any thread is considered to be hijacking the original posters thread which in turn subjects the thread to be closed if it continues to happen thus not making it fair to the original poster in the future had for some reason he/she needed to return for additional information or provide an update of the problem solved which is always welcomed within a reasonable amount of time frame.

8. Please note that you should see a red banner pop up near the bottom of each inactive thread asking you not to reply to old threads. The Red banner will read: Please note this thread has been inactive for 90 days. For the best results, please start a new thread.

Thank you all in advance for doing your part in helping iboats run a smooth ship.

  • 1967 Evinrude Lark VIII engine and 1967 Aerocraft Lark boat

    I just bought a 1967 Aerocraft Lark with, what I believe, is the original engine, an Evinrude Lark VIII with the matching push button power shifter. The previous owner said it needed a carburetor kit and a generator. I want to buy the repair manual but don't know how many cylinders the engine has, how can I tell? The original colors the boat (Aerocraft) was manufactured with include Burgundy, Midnight Blue and Seaspray Green. Our boat is Burgundy and we would like to paint it Seaspray Green, does anyone know what color this might be? Or if it is better to keep the original burgundy it was manufactured with?

            I have a 1966 Lark (I believe) and I have the book that came with it. It has sat outside for several years and hasn't been used since '87. Would you be interested in this boat, or scans of the literature? It has an evenrude on it that I believe is original and ran when it was last used.
            Let me know.
