Re: Appraisal of 1980 15 sport

A mint (not painted), all-original SPORT 15 sport with newish trailer and a non-rebuilt well-maintained 2003 outboard engine is not worth $9,000.

There are just too many things. Maybe $2,000 to $3,000.

Assuming two years, even if outside, have the owner fire up the engine in a barrel.

If the engine has been maintained, serviced seasonally, and had a recent carburetor cleaning and synchronization, it should be fine.

Re: 210 Outrage bow rail screw

The rail is screwed into the fiberglass cap and backing material, either marine plywood or phenolic board.

Check all your railing screws.

How is it possible to lift the rail base, there should be 2 screws per rail base.

Re: Direct fit cooler replacement for a 1987 Montauk

Sorry - it is not Elite, rather Marine Ultra.

It appears the only difference between the Marine and the Ultra is the handles, hinges and closing mechanism. Given the price difference, it may be cheaper to order the Marine series and replace the hinges and latch with the Ultra replacement parts.
