Re: Restoring a Seacraft SF 18

Thinking about the fuel tank. you say it is sitting on rubber and is 20 years old. If true then it is not the original tank and might just be ok. The way it is mounted does water drain to let the tank remain dry?

Re: Someone's got to say it - I don't like the new website format!

I liked the old forum better but I will get used to this one. I am sure some of it is just getting used to the change. If it helps to keep the forum going and saves cost I am all good with it.

Re: plastic fuel tank hold downs

I would go with your plywood idea. I do not think you need any downward force, just something to keep the tank from moving. If the tanks tries to move in the hole you are putting it in at that point you got bigger problems :help:

Re: Restoring a Seacraft SF 18

Living where I do I have never seen a SeaCraft in person so all I can tell you is what I know from general boat knowledge. All the SeaCrafts I have seen, in pictures, have foam filled stringers so those are normally in good shape. If the transom is solid you have found a real gem. Raising the transo...

Re: Restoring a Seacraft SF 18

Welcome Chuck, That is a really nice looking boat, it is easy to see why you are willing to put some work and money into it. Being a 1975 model I would not be surprised if there were lots of problems you can not see at this time. Opening up a boat of this age can be a lot like opening Pandora's box ...

Re: Unusual Drain Plug

I think it's a bad idea. If you lose the plug underway the hole in the bottom will act as a scoop and fill your hull with pressure. The opposite happens with the transom. And if you have an issue elsewhere you can get moving and pull the transom plug to help drain quickly. I had not thought about t...
