SS235 Seats

WEppi, Sorry, I don't have the original seats. They were replaced by the original owner in 1998 with Sea Ray interior. All of the seats are now white.

Sorry I couldn't help more.

1967 Slickcraft SS170

I purcahsed this boat about 6 years ago and have had a fantastic time with it. It has a wonderful design and turns some heads! I had to replace the original outboard with an Evinrude 48 SPL, it is more than enough for the boat.

285 Slickcraft

I have nearly completed a repower of my 1974 285 Slickcraft hardtop. I used the shaft struts that came with the boat but it could stand new ones. If anybody knows of a salvage 285 or 30 let me know.

1974 ST-170 Slickcraft

After looking at my last, first and only post. I realize that I have made a mistake. My St-170 was made in 74 not 63. (Brain Fart ). I have found that the old paint was hiding a very nice gelcoat. So I have begun to strip the nasty junk from me hull, arrrrr. Its a slow process but I think it will be well worth the effort. Taking pics as I go, I will try to find a place to post them soon. God Bless ya'll PS Dont get much action here do ye?

76 slickcraft 235

We have been the proud owners of a 235 since 1977. Purchased boat new in Reidville, VA. Used it for fishing on bay for several years before moving to South Carolina. The boat has all original equipment with exception of the V-birth cussions and boat covers. Original upolstery is about to be replaced. Power plant is a 188 Mercruiser, 302 Ford which runs like a top! Boat has always been kept in dry storage and serviced every year by a good technican. Both children and many of their friends learned to ski behind this boat. The way it is holding up, grandchildren may well follow.

Time to put new life into this old thread! Here is my 1973 Swiftcraft (Robalo) - totally restored and lots of "non-original" parts that make it much more enjoyable! Hats off to this great boat!
