csuggs...have you done your floor and stringers yet? I see some post where you were going for it this year perhaps?
Mine was actually built in August of 85, according to the VIN on the back of the hull. The last 4 digits of the VIN gives the date of manufacture. Fourth from last is a letter of the month of manufacture, then 1 digit for the year of manufacture and the last two is the model year. My last 4 are G586. I gotta believe the G stands for August because an A would be April and no other month has the letter G. Go figure.
I noticed that about your windshield. Mine is a Sunsport Skier and the windshield is factory. I thought maybe yours was modified cause I think that your pylon is taller than mine too - looks like it was set up for skiing around the front of the boat when making tight u-turns with a slalom skier to return to the gate of the course - tapered side shields and taller pylon would allow the rope to go around the front of the boat without taking the driver's head off. My brother used to do that - freaked me out! So is your windshield original? Do you have the Sunsport or the Sunsport Skier?
I am leaning towards a 350 vortec replacement as oppossed to 383. I have efi (throttle body) and have been told I would need someone to reprogram the computer in order to run correctly. Otherwise the engine will run lean.
Michigan Motorz has a 350 Vortec for 2001 model year on sale at 2199.
