Default 20 Sceptre

Been awhile since I've been out on the 20 Sceptre. need to go through the fuel system...going to drain the tank and re check everything...engine runs fine at lower speeds but surges at higher RPM...thought I replaced the fuel filters last time I did service...anyway the boat got me and a buddy to and fro safely...hit a small beach with our metal detectors...got 3 rings no gold...next day we hunted the foot hills and my friend scored his first gold coin...some random shots.

Its a territorial gold coin...made by a private mint back before they had the mint in San francisco...so its worth some dough... has a small dent on the obverse side but estimates from others are in the 3-5K range...the government bought up most of them back in the day to take them out of circulation...dont know if he will sell it...Note the head band says Moffat and Co instead of Liberty...if your lucky you will find one gold coin in a lifetime...found my first gold coin in the same area about a year ago. Lots of fun finding stuff..

"5800 rpm and hitting about 38 knots"

This was a quote from 2013 when I had it close to dialed in...I had to go look for it because it's been a couple years since I've even been on this boat...Once I fix the fuel issues I'm having I'll report back...

Glad to see you out enjoying your 20' sceptre. Ive been using mine a bit out trout fishing this year. Still haven't got my rub rail on or redone the outboard paint (had new decals for 4 years now) but she is useable. The trout bite is great this year in NC as we haven't had a good freeze in 4 years now. Yours still looks as good as it always has...

Thanks Friz..there neat little boats thats for sure once you get past the recessed windshield its all good...lots of storage WAY more then a CC....as my wife tells me its the perfect boat...I'm re doing a 20 master Angler right now and its going to be a bit cramped compared to the Sceptre (pics coming when its done).

Sounds cool, cant wait to se the "MA" 20' your doing. I actually have a 78 MA myself and plan on doing it this summer if I can find the time. I want to rework mine into something a little different than the standard lay out. Plans are large casting platforms front and rear with a forward console that has steps on both sides leading to the front platform. Cant wait to see pics of yours once you make some progress.
