| | 1976 Silverton Sedan 31'
Hey all first timer here,
I currently own a 1976 Silverton Sedan 31' and I am enrolled in Suny Maritime College and one of my professors asked me to do a research paper on something that I enjoy, so i choose my boat.
Im having trouble finding information about it. I mean i have all the basics like when it was manufactured and all the specs and shit like that but i was trying to get a little more in-depth with it. I contacted Silverton directly but with no prevail. I was looking if anyone knows more info about this make and model such as what was the original starting price, who was the designer, how many were manufactured or anything like that. I know this is probably a weird post for a forum like this but any info could help me at this point.
Also i plan on staying on this forum and posting my progress on my overhaul. In 2008 i replaced both 220 crusaders and swapped them for 350hp Vortex Engines kept the V-drive configuration same transmission but replaced the V-drives with Walter V-drives. I did he engine swap completely by my-self and all is well. Recently I tore the entire inside out and i am still in the process of putting it back together. New cabinets new bathroom door no more closet, new rug, no more sheepskin on the walls. So far its looking amazing and im really enjoying this boat. I also did the entire flybridge over no rug replaced it with non skid paint looks amazing. I added outriggers not that im a big fisherman but it makes the boat look awesome. I Built boxes for my back to back seats on the flybidge and equpted them with stereo speakers and wraped them in white canvas to match the seats. All new izen on the flybridge and extending the softtop to cover the complete flybridge where before it stopped a few feet before the edge. And plenty other repairs that ill be happy to chat about
What i really need is help on this paper tho so if anyone can help it would be greatly appreciated looking forward to hearing form you guys soon thanks. -Big Joe
