    New here, have a rare 1988 seyler boat ,need help with finding info, advice

    Hello my name is Andrew, I bought a 21' tripple stepped hull boat about 2 year's ago and have been trying to find any info since, and there just is none, so coming here i thought would be a great next step, i would like to restore her back to OEM, but dont know some details and how they should be, all i have for info on the boat came on the registration ,and said 1988 seyler ( renegade vso cabriolet is what the boat stickers say), and after alot of searching i did come across the F-22 center console FV, that Steve French made ine the same era, and the hull looks almost the same ,

    It is strange, i got a good deal and i love rare things, and restoring them, think it was a prototype since seyler boats closed in 1989, can't wait to see how she goes!

    A good friend of mine bought a new F22 center console at the New England boat show back in the mid 80's. It had the new then Merc V6 150 Hp. (what ever year they were brown stripe). I always loved the look of that hull with the radical steps. It always ran nice and flat, it was a really nice boat, it ran about 45. If I remember correctly it was rated for 270 Hp. It was no light weight and well built. He towed it with a big full size bronco, one time putting it in the water in Plymouth at low tide, backing down the slimy ramp, the weight of the boat and trailer pulled the whole rig down the ramp, tires screeching as the brakes on the bronco were locked. That turned a few Heads!!

    If you want to run that boat over 50 mph looks like you will need a V6 for sure.

    If you restore this boat you have to make the sink functional
