I personally would check several things. The hull should be crack free, I don't know the years the hulls where glassed/laid up but mine is a '79 and is crack free. There are more than a handfull of folks on this site that know plenty about the SST Sleek and can probably tell you all you want and need to know. The hulls have no stringers but structually designed that way. If you go BIG HP, stringers are recommended. I would recommend finding one with a Dominator or a Berkeley intake/pump though. Tom at JBP I'm told makes a BBC engine mounting/rail kit specific for the Sleekcraft SST's too. Send a pix of the one your looking at so we can all check her out!
This is it. BBF with about 15 hours on it. Said the Berkley started making noise. Probably going to see it this sunday. It is a 78 so thanks for the no stringer tip. Have the vdrive race fuel deal. Looking for something a little more marina friendly with friends.
