    Slickcraft 240 SL

    I have a 1978 Slickcraft 240SL with twin 350 chevy engines and 3 rebuilt OMC outdrives. 520 HP. Boat moves! I live in Bristol, IL. I need to restore a bunch of stuff because the boat took on some water last year. It is in very good condition for its age. Original seats, interior, bimini etc.

    My 240XL

    Actually the boat sank in Seneca last summer. I took it to a shop in Joliet who specialize in OMC equipment. They "pickled" the motors, then got both running for a few minutes each. Boat has been drying out in my yard since. I plan to restore it completely if the motors run again when I check them in April. I really hope so. If not, I may decide to part with the boat. Sell it in tact at a very low price, or worse case for parts. Any thoughts or suggestions?

    Can you send me some photos at mjjabishop@att.net? Where are you located? My SL sank 2 years ago. Got the motors - twin 351 Fords running for 2 minutes, but the boat is drying out. I will re-do it - it had all new leather, white sheepskin interior, teak motor cover and all original bimini etc. OMC drives rebuilt. I have a third rebuilt one too. A true classic. I have another boat - 22' Regal Velocity with a merc 300 Mag. Boat does 55 at 4000 rpm's = wrong prop. Probably more like 60-62 mph. I will probably sell it. How much do you want for your SL? Trade for the Regal?

    I have a 1977 Slickcraft cuddy
    with a 350 mercruiser engine that I need to unload. I'm not using it after my husband passed away. Motor works great. We started to redo the electrical but never finished. Free to a good home. Lots of teak. Contact 412.528.1360 or valeriegaydos@me.com and I'll send photos. Located in Essex, MD. It is currently on the hard but easily launched from near ( a few hundred feet) of this location on Middle River
