Welcome, and yes pictures would help. If I'm correct from the last 3 digits of the HIN it was built June 1996 which was in the final year or so of production.

In Business: Monday, June 06, 1983

Thanks Admid. Ya pics would help but your dealing with a computer illiterate so will have to wait for son.

Some previous owner had the transom cut for 15 but didn't cover the hole, so if you slow down quickly it could get a little wet.

So it is headed to the shop for some TLC. and it will end up with a L/S offshore on it. Just a lake runner.

Was good to see you the other day Anthony, sad the reason we were there, Sean will be missed.

Rob is working on the boat and I'll and get some pics.

I don't know if this boat will take the punishment that the HST did. You know those Rice 3 footers. You saw enough of that one in action.

Wonder how the stv will be for one of the poker runs, 90 miles mite be a little rough on my body.

Yes Al it was good to see you...I agree the HST is more of a sled for the ruff stuff...However you know I feel no short comings in the STV Hull either...just keep the pickels up and you will be fine. Looking forward to seeing some pix...thx AL :)
