Default Hello from CT/ 1987

Hi,
I'm happy to be part of the group. I bought a 1987 Sportfire with a 135 Merc about a month ago. I spotted it on CL for $2200. I ended up grabbing it for $1500 since it didn't appear to be pumping water on the muffs. Also had a soft spot in the floor and seats were falling apart. But.... What a cool looking boat! I'm a fast car buff so I couldn't resist how it looked fast sitting on the trailer.
Turns out it needed a bit more work than I expected but I'm having a blast working on it. I look forward to finding some good info on the forum. Ha! I just noticed CT decided to change the model name lol.
