    Floors a little worn but it's all there! 327 is a great motor. Enjoy and welcome to the site.

    Just installed new carpet it yesterday. Looks awsome now. Next is getting the seats redone. The motor is great. The exhaust is just above the water so she is nice and loud. :)

    Its taken good care of. Its never been left uncovered to be rained or snowed in. Other than the carpet its all original. Motor has just 720 hours on it.

    I have a 1971 SRV 200 that is a one owner boat that is original and extremely clean including interior. Does this boat have any collectable value. I have been considering contacting Sea Ray to see if they would like it back. If any one has any thoughts I would welcome the advice. Thanks. michaelfitzgibbons@ymail.com I am getting ready to have wrapped for the winter and could take some photos to share.

    Hey Mike. I forgot all about this thread I never got a notification saying that anybody posted it. I'm not too sure about the collectibility of these boats. I talked to A Searay dealer at the Ohio RV and boat show. I showed him the boat that I have and he told me to get ahold of searay because the boat I have with the avocado color exterior and interior with the OMC 327 motor was the rarest combination they made.

    I was wondering why the engine was painted Chevy orange. The ones of that vintage by OMC I thought were always blue. The 327 answers alot. Was the exhaust original or did you have that added? Looks pretty bad ass.

    Everything about the boat is original. My grandpa bought it in 1975 from the original owner. He hadn't had it in the water for like 3 years when my grandpa bought it from him. I got it when my grandpa passed away in 2011. So the exhaust color of the motor and all that is how she came from the factory. Thanks for the complement.
