1978 starcraft project, will need advice

Post by 1xlrn »

So much to my wife’s chagrin I’ve purchased a 1978 StarCraft which I believe is a 18’ supersport with a 140 evinrude, this will be my first boat rebuild/restore so I apologize for what will probably be an onslaught of questions but it’s better to ask than guess! First question how do I post a pic?

I use the Tapatalk app. Uploading pics is super easy from my phone and it keeps all the forums I'm interested in, organized and in one place.

There is a topic under the Watering Hole forums that gives a step-by-step on how to post photos.

If I did it right, there should be a link below:

Well the outside looks great. Looks like the inside is ready for all kinds of possibilities. I love these hulls. The Supersport is rare in my area of Ontario. Mostly you see the closed bow Holiday. Look forward to seeing what you do with it.

X2 - Among my favorite boat styles.

I wonder if the the built-in gas tank is an add-on or original? My 18' walk-thru has a 12 gallon "portable" which is really not at all portable unless it is empty. :)

Any progress on this?
This looks like a great specimen for a first time rebuild.
These old Starcrafts are my favorite hulls to work with! Simple design, sturdy construction, easy to modify, plenty of room to do whatever you want. Here's my Starcraft Holiday turned into a fishing boat Image ImageImage
