Stern Ensign For a 1961 Ski Boat

Hey all, I tried searching for info about how big a stern ensign should be for my 61, but was finding a lot of pre-war stuff. I have a flag on the pole, but it's too big. I know this because it damn near touches the water, AND it almost tore the mount right out of the back of the boat. So, 2 good in...

Oil Pressure Sender For My Gauge On My '61

Hey folks, so I'm having an issue finding an oil sender for my 61' Ski Boat. It has a 283 in it and the gauge is 0-60psi. It is one of the bell shaped sender in it, but it's wrong. It's an 80psi. Question; what does everyone use for that gauge so it actually works properly? I'm sure the right one is...

Re: New Trailer. Single or Dual Axle??

Thanks for the input everyone! I mostly tow it too and from a couple of local lakes here. About 25 to 45 mins away, depending on which one I go to. But I do travel 3 or 4 times a year over 3 hours from my house. Which is why the conundrum. As I do more investigating on trailers and stuff, I'm going...

Bow Lights. Any Ideas?

I got these at a local swap meet. Thought they were kinda cool. Anyone know what they might be from?

Or at least why one would have blue and red, not green and red?



ALSO, I've tried everything to get these bloody things to load upright, and they wont.
