Classifieds / FS: Free 1971 TRi Hull 120
« Last post by dozen01 on September 16, 2018, 10:46:43 AM »
The Good - The Hull is good, 120 hp engine has been solid, lower unit rebuilt less than 30 hours ago.  Original Rolco trailer included with 2 year old tires with 300 miles on them.  I was the second owner of this boat and bought it in 1989.  Title for boat and trailer is available.  Original top is in the boat.  It was good, not sure now.

The Bad - Floor and interior sun and rain roached, not sure about the transom, one freeze plug threads stripped, oil drain plug threads stripped.

Gimbal bearing went out so a friend and I replaced about 6 years ago, but couldn't get the last hose clamp around one of the baffles so we put it off until tomorrow.  Tomorrow never came and boat set out for 5 years.  Lower unit still off and stored in the boat. 

Location - Beaver lake in Northwest Arkansas

Very nice one owner boat.  Boat was purchased new in 1980. Always stored indoors summer or winter. Powered by a very nice sounding V-8 200 HP engine.  There is no hour meter but it is relatively low time for its age.  It is a carbureted engine and the carburetor probably is ready to be overhauled.  It was used somewhat regularly in the 80's and early 90's.  For the past 20 years it has been used only occasionally.  Interior was reupholstered approximately 12 years ago in the original color.  Options include AM/FM/Cassette w/4 speakers, depth sounder and bimini top.  Full canvas cover for towing.  Includes a Shoreliner trailer with wheels rather than bunks which make it much easier to get the boat on and off in a shallow boat landing.   Asking price: $3,000.

General Mark Twain Discussion / Help with restoring my Famlies 1986 MTB 195.
« Last post by B3farm on August 02, 2018, 10:00:12 PM »
Greetings. my name is Zachary Bartels. My parents have owned a 1986 MTB 195 since they got married, Mom always thought us kids would grow up on the lake. Sadly this wasn't to be. Some time in the 90's my dads brothers poked a hole in the cover and it started to rot out the floor. Rather than buy a new cover, my dad just took the old one off with plans of fixing the floor, but never got around to as he traveled for work. So its in very poor shape. However, the engine was winterized prior to the indecent. My dad and I are planning on trying to get the motor running on Saturday. ( 08-04-2018) I'm trying to figure out where the fuel pump and tank are located prior to us working on it. can anyone shoot photos my way or tell me if the fuel pump is in the tank or motor house?
Thanks for any help. I'll post photos tomorrow.

Hey all, new to the group. I just picked up a 1981 195v and itís in great shape! But itís missing the snap on covers or whatever theyíre called. They snap over the bow and the back I think. Whatíre they called and can they still be sourced?
Thanks

We are parting out an older Mark Twain boat. I have numerous pics I can share. I haven't got the parts out of the boat yet. I am wanting to know what the demand is for these parts and what is a reasonable price to ask for complete windshields, dash and instrument panel ect.

I have a 1973 16T with a bad 140hp Mercuruser (has crack in block) no water in oil. I don't want to fix because the boat is to small for me. So if someone wiith interest wants it I would make a good deal to keep it from being parted out. Thanks Garry
