Re: 67 sportcraft restore questions

I have just acquired a 1969 (I think) Sportcraft 19 myself. I have the Mercruiser 120 removed in order to replace some of the components (alternator, starter, rebuild carb). I likewise have the boat at local Mercruiser dealer to go through the lowerunit, cables, etc. while I am working on the engine. But I think I need to have the hull refinished (Gelcoat, paint) or something. Can you please send me a picture of your 67 Sportcraft as a comparison and network regarding my restoration? Likewise, is there anything I should take a look at regarding my engine at this time due to any poblems with your MCM 120? Thank you, jo.giles@shell.com

We have a 1998 sport-craft walk around 231. Looking for an owners manual. Anyone got any advice?



An owners manual isnt likely to provide anything but the most basic of info, little specific to your boat. They arent anything like auto owners manuals.
