New guy first boat 12' Starcraft semi V

Post by dmuncy007 » 19 Jul 2018, 13:56

Hey everyone bought this little 12’ what I believe to be a Starcraft not sure what model or year and the trailer for $250 but it didn’t have a title ...I can’t find anything on weight limit or motor size anywhere on the boat ...only identifying marks are the sticks on the sides....any info would be helpful so I can get this mod underway

Compared to no boat, any boat is a good boat.

Missing the front seat just begs for a small floorboard to be installed. Originally rated for 7.5 hp. Probably fine with a 9.9. I run a 4 hp on mine and it is a great little small water boat that is fairly stable.

Mine is a little older and was in worse shape. Here is the link to my refresh over the winter if you’re interested.

Yeah I was thinking about a small front deck and maybe some raised floor but I don't want to put too much stuff on it. I actually like the way yours turned out. Plain and simple

So I started the destruction phase. I took all the broken lights and old wiring out.Then I took the old seats out, all the bolts were rusted together and I had to get bolt cutters to get most of them out. I took the transom boards off and decided to try a couple of different ways to start removing the old paint, any advise on paint removal would be gladly taken. Also do I really need the foam under the sits if I’ll not planning on adding much weight. I feel like it would make it easier to install the raised floor.

Got to spend a couple hours working on it today we got most of the paint out of the inside of the boat. I talk the kids into helping a little. I’ll take some free labor anytime I can get it
