its a 1979 mach 1, i bought it with no motor and thanks to Jason Rouse he's helping me get it together. hull is solid, minor stress cracks but i expect it out of a boat of this age. nice interior, im going to polish as many chrome and aluminum pieces as possible because as we all know chicks love things that shine . it has a nice pump, droop, diverter and relief valve. beside the motor i have to get the gas tanks set in because of a terrible fiberglass job the previous owner did (check the pics). and also im going to start working on the trailer, find a way to lift the boat off, replace the bunk, repaint it and replace the bearings. i wish i had more money so i can hurry up and get it done but im want it done right so i dont have to worry about getting talked about on the forums and lakes lol. for all of you that helped me thanks and a special shout out to jason at Rouse Performance!
i dont know why the pics are cropped to the right

If you don't mind my asking...how much did you pick that up for!? It seems like an awesome start! It has alot of things I wish mine had when I started. The 4 pt rail kit is awesome! Nice find, it looks sweet!
For my bunks, I cut everything to size ahead of time, resined the boards, bought and cut the carpet, grabbed a sawzall, staple gun with stainless staples, and a makita.
Went to my local lake, floated the boat out, tied her up and went to work on the trailer. Cut the old bunks out (after being totally unsuccessful unbolting them)...counter sunk everything, wrapped the board, attached them, floated the boat back onto the trailer a couple hours later and brought it home.
thanks fellas. im definitely about to work on the trailer, just finished trying to polish up as much chrome and aluminum as possible. some of the pieces had water spots in them that just won't come out.. any tips? i have been using mothers polish. hopefully the motor will be in soon so i can see how it handles. one more thing tho, i have seen a couple other mach one boats that have the "mach one custom boats" emblem on them, anyone know where i can find one or are those a needle in a haystack? i'll be sure to post better pics next time
