I played around with the idea of adding a small console and converting our Sceptre into a "Savage" layout (see specs on the site), but realized that the open cockpit and room provided in the Sceptre...

I think you'll find that no reputable welders are interested in welding on a 50 year old gas tank. I had the same idea, just wash it out real good, hook up a couple of fans and let it air out for a...

Replacing the gas tank can be a PITA for sure, I did the one on our 23' Sceptre a few years ago. It had been foamed in, and while I was repowering, putting in new controls, rewiring, etc., I wanted...

Well, huh... that's a lotta ponies for a small boat! Did you have specific speed and handling goals in mind/how's it stack up?

Last one, which isn't just the 27, but the full SeaCraft line price list for 1982. I also have original spec sheets for the '82 18SF 20SF, 20MA, 23SF, and 23 Sceptre. Enjoy!

Words seem inadequate to express the feelings your story brings... perhaps every parent's worst fear. Condolences on your loss, hang in there.

Well, 20 years ago I put a new DF140 on an 18 SF, and got 43.8 mph by GPS at WOT with a Suzuki S/S 14x20 prop, so it sounds like your prop may be way off?
