Re: 1956 Sportsman stain

Yes, it was great to talk to Steve Griffitts about the boat and the whole process to find it. He did a nice job with our old photos. Love it !

1956 Sportsman stain

Hello -

Thank you in advance for any replies !

Judging from the attachment - can anyone help me get started on staining my boat to match back to the original color ?

It is sanded down to bare wood. Will soon have new top decking.

KLC Engine Questions

Question of K series engine heads. I have a KLC, and one of the spark plug threads is completely stripped. I found a K head for sale. Is there a difference between a K head and a KLC head ? Also - stripped spark plug threads in the head are not fixable, correct ?
Thank you

KLC Carburetor

Hello-
I have acquired a 1953 KCL with all parts except for the carburetor and flame arrestor for my 1956 project.

Can anyone lead me in the right direction to find a carburetor for this motor ?

Thank you

In an amazing chain of events, I have found the actual boat I was looking for. It has been sitting in a back yard in NH for 40 years. I now have ownership of this boat. Needle in a haystack for sure. Needs a ton of work - buts its the one.

Hello -

Thank you for the reply.

This boat was bought at Irwin Marine, Alton Bay, Lake Winnipesaukee New Hampshire in 1956. It was sold in 1958 or 1959 at Lake Winnipesaukee also. I was told it was sold to someone with the last name of Tilton
