1976 Stars and Stripes

Bake's Marine

Recommended Posts

We had this boat in the shop for service and had to snap a few pictures of this 1976 Stars and Stripes and share it with everybody.

Funny going from working on boats with a digital dash then going to a boat with only 3 switches (bilge, navigation, blower) talk about down boat evolution.

A guy here at work just sold his early 80's Stars & Stripes earlier this year. While not in that kind of shape, still a cool boat.

This is a very cool boat, it's amazing how basic and simple boats use to be.

They had a thread on this one over on TT for a while. I could do without the Overton's seats in the front, but it looks like the original one is now being used in the back, so it's still there. The CL ad stated that it was originally Kris Lapoint's boat, but also stated that back then MCs were not for sale to the general public, only pros. So who knows.

Cool old boat either way. Show some pics of the custom tandem trailer, Paul.

I have always liked the Stars and Strips ever since I saw my first one as a kid, I wanted one ever since, never could convince my Dad to upgrade (would have been back in the late 70's).

Thanks for sharing Tim. Cool looking boats! They have the nice square windshield I'm used to. LOL.gif

Our Bu still has the 260hp carbed Merc. I love it. The most complicated thing under the dogbox is the starter relay. ROFL.gif I'll never need a computer or code reader to figure out why she won't start and that's exactly why I bought it! Thumbup.gif I love classics. Clap.gif
