Hi everybody I just joined the site today, but have spent a bunch of time on here reading all kinds of posts and information. I just bought my first boat yesterday and felt I had to join now... Here is my 18 ft. 1984 Sleek Craft with a 454 BBC and Berkeley 12JC..I hope I don't annoy you guys too much because I'm gonna need a ton of advice...thanks

Welcome to this addictive world we all live in!

That is really nice boat! I like that it still has the engine closure. Post up some better pics of that!

Thanks! Its my little project...The guy I bought it off of was pretty much the original owner. He was shaking so bad when signing the paper work his lady had to tell him to breathe. He said it was like givin away one of his kids. He has called me constantly, almost told him the boat blew off the trailer on the drive home, but I couldn't do that to him :)  Its going to be addicting

Hey! I resemble that remark!  ;D ;D

I guess your boat disproves my theory that all Sleekcraft Rebels resemble livestock!

Welcome, nice to see what mine prolly used to look like, lol

Oh, and I have at least one of the upholstered end panels for your seats (beside the engine cover), might have 'em both, don't remember. and they're white too if I can find them.
