Hi guys, first let me say thanks for the invite and hope the site takes off.

 

I hear there is alot CC people, well I bought this boat so I would stop tring to rush my ongoing Sun Ray project and the simple fact it's 16 foot with a V8. Hopefully I will get it on the water Sat., it's suppose to be in the low 60's here in NE Ohio.

 

Here's some pictures let me know what ya think and if there is anyone else with one or had one. Also does any one know the make of the trailer? It has coils like a Tee-Nee and it seems to be well made, tows like a dream.

Chris,

I wondering if you could assist me with identifying my Eaton Sterndrive.  I have a '64 Dorsett.  I think that it may be a series 14 or series 16 unit but not sure.  i wound up wasting about 30 bucks on a manual for the Powernaut and turns out it was quite a bit different from the one i have.   do you have a photo of your Series 16 that you may share with me so i can confirm or rule out the series 16?  thanks for any info you can provide.
