Default Just picked up an early model Seafari 20

Just went and picked up an original 20 Seafari. Itís gonna need a lot of work but not as bad as I thought. I will be needing some help and advice to get this thing water ready. As much as I like the engine box Iím leaning toward enclosing the transom and adding a bracket. Itís a Moseley era model with the chrome Seacraft emblems. The floors feel quite solid everywhere but the starboard side. Here are some pics. Let me know what you think.

Pretty rough, but so much potential. I dived out of a early 70's Seafari, way offshore, for years, fabulous boat. CG is important. Look up Bushwackers posts on what he had to do after adding a bracket. Its doable, but tricky.

Saw this posted on the FB page. Nice score! What year?

Pretty impressing that the pop-out windshield still functions as it's intended. I don't recall them ever being used or moved on my '77, and I'm afraid all the plastic bits are brittle as hell... It's on my to-do list however! I'm jealous!

Cant figure out the year. All I have is the serial number. They guy I got it from said 85 but I knew that was wrong. I think it is a 69. It has the double cabin doors and the bow rail has 4 posts on each side just like the brochures. I think 70 and later went to three posts then two on each side. I wish there was a way to track the serial number.

Great project - best of luck. Keep us in the loop on the refit - we don't see many Seafaris brought back from the dead!

What s/n do you have? My 1972 Seafari is #2268. There has been speculation in earlier threads that Seafari s/nís may have started around 2000 or 2100 based on annual build volume and a few early boats with good ID plates.
