          Anyone??
          I have a 77w115 Johnson. good boat, i broke transom last fall and replaced it. quite a job! I have original papers that came with boat , but that is a wiring diagram on typed paper. I don't think they ever published a manual.

            I have just finished replacing my transom on a 17. A lot of work and I used epoxy then coated with gelcoat. West products from Jamestown were excellent but kind of expensive. I took a lot of photos and probably would fix in a different manner if I had to do again, I cut the whole thing out and completely replaced. Next time I would hollow out and pour with Epoxy for several reasons.

              Anyone have photos of the interior of their McFast V172 that they would share?

              I am starting restoration of a 1981 model and really want to get it correct & original... major areas are the dash, drivers seat, and passenger seat area. Lots of work ahead in these areas..

              A wiring diagram would be nifty also..

              Thanks in advance.

                Yep...I bought mine new in 1978 and have had it ever since. It has been a great boat and the Evinrude 115 has been way beyond great. Only had to replace on power pack in all that time along with standard servicing. The grand old Lady has aged gracefully but at that is still showing her age. I have bought a Triton TR21 that I use to fish with a lot but I just could not come to part with the Lady. Still take her out when I am fishing locally and she does just fine.

                    I am about to purchase an '87 Monark that the owner told me was a fish and ski model. I can't seem to find out if this even really exists as a model number or if it is just a street name. Any info or words of advice for these boats would be much a appriciated. It has a 200hps johnson outboard which judging from the size of the boat (19ft.) I would say is at the upper end of the recommended limit.

                      I have a 1979 Monark Mcfast15 with a 1978 Mercury80hp motor that are both in really good shape. Unfortunately I only took it out once last year because with my ever growing family my time has become limited. It was bought brand new by my father who passed it down to me a few years ago. I can't find much info on the value of it, but I am looking to sell it. Can anyone point me in the right direction? Info on these seems to be limited! Thanks!
