Hello I’m new to the forum. I’ve recently been gifted a 1970’s 22’ Sea Ray. It has a cabin and mercruiser Ford 302 888 outdrive. The boat appears to be all original including the trailer. The owner gave me the boat because he’s older and no longer uses it. He did however maintain the boat and for the most part everything works. I’m considering a refit. I like the looks of it. Cosmetically it’s showing it’s age. I’m Not sure if I should pull the motor and decks and go from there or just paint it and run it. A little about myself. I’m a professional aircraft mechanic I have the skills and tools to rebuild it but I know nothing about Sea rays. Are they prone to rotten decks,stringers and transom? Fuel tank aluminum or fiberglass? What about the power plant? I haven’t picked it up yet because I know little about it. I grew up on outboard powered boats so this is new to me. I’m not looking to make any money off it. I have a boat now. Thoughts?
