In the twenty years I've owned and operated two different SeaCraft models the scupper design hasn't presented much of a problem to me. It may seem counter intuitive to have a couple of holes on the...

Re: needing a shrink... I've made the case (repeatedly) to my wife that the whole "boat thing" is not a terribly expensive vice (the way I do it anyway) compared to many, like flying and race cars,...

I think it depends on how you use your boat, and what you expect. The design of the "drains" that go through the bottom of the boat can allow seawater in, if a lot of weight is placed in the stern. I...

Maybe first hook the new one up temporarily, without removing the old one or installing the new one, and see if that solves the problem? Then if it still isn't working return the new key switch. Only...

I'm on the skeptical side myself on this, but how about keeping both motors for now, getting the boat fixed up and trying it out with the 70? If you like it, THEN sell the 100. If it's too much of a...

With all due respect bgreene, it sounds like you probably already have an opinion about the ride quality of the different models, huh? Why not fold in modern stepped hulls too? How about cats? Bottom...

Well, shoot, I "almost" came close to being in the early owner sweepstakes. Got my first ride in a SeaCraft in '78, in a straight inboard Sceptre in the BVI, and it blew me away. Looked real close...

Cool! Congratulations on getting her buttoned up and in the water. Back in '02 (dang, that's nearly 20 years ago!) I put one of the original model DF140's on my 18' and I dug up my notes on...

I hear what you're saying Bump, but the tabs haven't worked since I bought the boat over 10 years ago, and the troubleshooting I've done so far hasn't raised a peep out of the pump. The boat actually...

Bennett "Bolt" Electric Tabs?

Our 23' has non-working 40 year old Bennett hydraulic tabs, and it seems like the pump is shot. The switch is antique too, thinking about going new and switching to electric - anyone with hands on...

I think you'll be real happy with that engine on your 20. We had five adults on our 150 Merc powered 23' Sceptre the other day, and she easily hopped right up on plane, cruised comfortably at 30mph...

I did that when we repowered our 23. Old engine was lucky to get 1.25 mpg on a good day, and the 75 gallon tank was deeply pitted where water was trapped by foam. I realized that the new motor should...
