My new 1990 Super Sport 15

Postby Fishteeth » Sat Sep 21, 2019 7:23 am

Last weekend, we took delivery of a 1990 SUPER SPORT 15 I found it here by posting a WTB ad. I searched for a long time without any luck until I found this forum. I had a few people PM me with good boats. One is for sale on this forum right now and is very similar to our boat. Thanks for the great forum.

And thanks, Tom. The boat is in fantastic condition. Tom, the previous owner of the boat, had meticulously cared for the boat since 1993.

The boat is exactly what we were looking for. The only change we plan is to add a bimini.

Give me a source for a bimini.

Sweet ride.

When I was a boy, the 15 SS w/ a 70 was the dream.

But there was never quite enough lawn mowing money. : )

Enjoy!

That is terrific. Cute family, beautiful area, classic boat. Those girls will never forget growing up with the SS. Excellent, excellent decision.

You can fit a consumer off-the-shelf Bimini to a Super Sport 15. For details see

http://continuouswave.com/maintenance-logs/bimini/

ASIDE: several of the images appear incorrectly oriented; the orientation seen may vary with the browser software. If a camera is held at a 90-degree rotation from the normal landscape aspect, in-line images in HTML pages will generally appear with improper orientation. I eventually corrected the image orientation.

If you don't have a cover, get that too. Carver makes both.

Look at wood diagram before mounting. Not much wood on the gunwales.
