New To Me - 98 Sportster LX!


Recommended Posts

Hello all,

This is my first boat. I grew up on I/O's like four winns and glastrons but have started to really like inboards. We had it out today just getting used to driving it and docking it. I've been learning a lot on these forums over the last month or so with all the boats I've gone to see, but this is the one I ended up with.

Thanks all!

Hey question for ya: is there a o-ring on your gas cap?? Thanks!

Yes, there is an o-ring that is bottomed out on the plastic gas cap's threads. It is a bit dry-rotted and could be replaced now that you had me look at mine, why?

Congrats and welcome!

I swear one of our crew members just traded that one in….

You are correct!

Thanks! My first month with it has been great! I was able to get out a handful of times and haven't had any issues. I've been learning quite a bit and have done a decent amount of small maintenance projects on it. Sadly, I have begun to winterize it since the forecast is looking pretty gloomy in MI.
