Welcome aboard

Nice looking boat.

Depending on how long it has been since you boated and what type of boating you did before a safe boating class won't hurt.

1997 Silverton 362, 7.4 Crusaders
1997 2400 SCR, 5.7 Vortec / Bravo 2

Thank you!
I grew up on boats in Eastern Canada, my Dad must have bought, fixed up, and sold 10 of them over the years varying in size, cruisers, runabouts, etc.
I took the Canadian Power Squadron course with my father when I was 18. I owned a little beater when I went through college, but haven't owned a boat in over 20 years. Just rented here and there.
Im happy that this site exists as I'm stoked not just to use, but to care for this Gem!

Its a 1700 I/O with Mercruiser 3.0L and Alpha 1 Leg.
Im told this is a workhorse combo and is A. reliable B. Common for parts

I'll use for fishing and towing kids around on tubes, relaxing on, and maybe a waster-ski or wakeboard here and there.

hope everyones summer goes awesome!

Perform a full annual service on it even if the previous owner claimed it was done. A good baseline is key!
