Re: Block Heater

I don't at this point. But would love to. Looking at some options that could monitor temp and send an alert text if the temp drops below a particular level. Just have not wanted to go to some of the monthly service type of monitoring.

Re: Models

Well that's a deal. I would get it out of the water and do a hull and anode inspection. Would hate to see corrosion problems develop since you got such a great price!!

Re: 1985 Sportsman Restoration Beginning

Stainless is really your only choice for mounting. As for the deck, use as few screws as possible. I have planned to use a small (note small) amount of double sided tape as well on decks that do not come out often.

My 85 Sportsman was refit by someone in 1998. The floors were replaced with 3/4 inch marine/waterproof (Not treated) plywood and I recently replaced a few pieces of that flooring in the cockpit. I am experimenting with using Olympic Rescue IT as it has a non skid built in.
