rebuild 90 stv

Recommended Posts

Ok, you guys should be able to help me.

I live in Montreal Quebec Canada, and looking for someone (the best) person to repaint the top of my STV. It is very lite and has a few spider cracks on top. The bottom looks and runs good.

It was raced by GW Carboni from Alabama. Won high points 1994 super stock.

Its fast. Center steering (cable steering) Single seat.

I am looking for a complete overhaul and paint. Transom looks good but I am not sure. I run a 2.5efi offshore and never had problems.

The top of the transom has a crack on both sides, but they have been there since I bought it about 6 years ago. Have not gotten worse.

It has become my personel HoT Rod.

I want to keep it for many years and I am looking for a complete rebuild.

Boat and rigging. Motor is perfect and not to be opened.

I can deliver to the right person, anywhere in the east coat (Canada or USA)

I am not looking for a cheap price or fast job!

I am looking for the best person to handle this project.

Thanks

Jeff

JEFF,

The best guy in Canada to contact is John Spaeth...he has done a number STV refits for guys on bored here over the last few years

He is located about 1 hr north of Toronto on the east side of Lake Simcoe...which means you will not have to drive thru Toronto from Quebec.

Give him a call at

Thanks for the great reply,

I will find some pics and post them the next few days.

Paul, sounds like the same but no I bought it from an old friend of mine (GW Carboni) GW Carboni drag raced for many years, then he got a sponsor and bought a new quarter master. He stated that his new boat never would turn the same rpms. Mine would turn over 10,000rpm. Broke the crank at 10,400.

Fly wheel (she flew!)

I bought a new 28 drag prop., that should turn some numbers.

Never had a chance to try it, but it should hall ass!

I only ran a 24 spenneli. Now I know how she handles, I am looking to turn some big numbers.

Ok back to the boat.

It is red and white. The bottom is all red, but I imported it from the USA.

The top is so thin, I can not walk on it anywhere. Not easy to get in and out.

Single center seat, external cable steering, with a race rear cowling.

This is not a ski boat.

Paul, what numbers were you running with your old STV? What are you running now.

I will call him this week to see when and if he can work on it.

This is a fast boat and I want to turn it into a Hot Rod.

I will sell my wife before the boat.

I think we all agree.

Talk to you,

Jeff

Paul she looks like twins. Even the trailer looks like mine.

Were you able to walk on the deck. I can not walk on any part of mine. Front or back.

Send me your e-mail address and I will forward you copies of mine.

Maybe you can post them for me.

Thanks

Jeff

Thats a good question.

I think it is like the river rocket, but not sure?

I will try to get a picture of the bottom.

What you think?

Jeff

A friend of mine has a four seater, it stands alot higher then mine.

Mine is very low to the water?

Yours does look like it has a different bottom.

Sooner or later, someone can tell me what I have.

All I know, she is fast down the 1/4 mile and handles like a dream.

Does not need any positive trim to run, but does any STV?

DAVE'S BOATS USES A SPECIAL BIAXLE CLOTH MADE FROM GROESH BEER CAPS AND HAIR FROM A ROTTING THREE LEGGED DOG- NO OFFENCE TO ANY OWNERS BUT THE QUALITY ISSUE IS IN SERIOUS QUESTION FROM THE TWO THAT I HAVE SEEN- I THINK THE FEW REAL BOATS THAT EXIST IS A COMMENT ON THEIR PERFORMANCE FOR A RECREATIONAL OWNER- BRB HAS A SMEET LOOKING RR IN TEAL WITH THE DRAG BOTTOM AND HE LOVES IT.

The red and white drag boat pictured is all busted up after one summer of use. The transom has a massive crack in it (you can put your hand in it!!) and the rest of the boat looks like chit. His quality is VERY bad. I know where that boat is right now and it is full of snow getting ready to just rot away.

I don't thiunk the boat RPM knows and the one pictured is the same. I could be wrong.

The owner of the boat pictured lives in Sudbury...unless he boats in Muskoka?

If I recall there was one for sale in the Trader Last Year...maybe that's the one RPM knows?

I think the boat is the one pictured. It might have been sent to Sudbury, and the transom busted up so it went back to creator to get fixed? It is in Bracebridge.

I have the boat in a temp beside my house. I will take the camera out and take a picture of the back, bottom.

Yes, it looks just as shallow as your picture.

The bottom is a good question, not the same as others I have seen.

I will get you a picture.

I heard, if I paint the top, the spider cracks will all come back regardless what I do. Make sense?
