    1989 IMP 220 Sportsman

    Gonna tap out for now. Realized the motor needs to come out this afternoon so I can address the exhaust pipe leak. Was hoping to do a quicky fix and get a few trips on the boat before winter sets in but it just aint happening. Having the engine out will give me time to clean up the engine...

    Mercruiser Exhaust Pipe

    Thanks for the reply Shad. Just came to that realization after work today. I was tossing around the idea of epoxy/j.b. weld just to put a few runs on the boat but after locating the leak I realized I cant reach it at all. Going to just pull the motor and put it on the stand and plug away at it...

    Mercruiser Exhaust Pipe

    I may be looking at the reality of replacing my exhaust pipe due to corrosion. I'm going to confirm the source of a small trickle of water running down the transom into the bilge while the engine is running on the earmuffs over this weekend. I'm assuming its a corroded pipe due to the age of the...

    I see a few spots that you could fit some extra rod holders! I came across pics of your boat the other night and was gonna message you about it. Good to know there is a few guys out there to question about these boats!

    1989 IMP 220 Sportsman

    Ran it on the ear muffs for a while and noticed a small pool of fresh water pooling in the bilge. Track it back to the transom and up to the area where the exhaust pipe bolts to the gimble plate and I find a big gob of silicone!!! Peeled of most of it but ran out of daylight to locate the source...

    1989 IMP 220 Sportsman

    Hope to get it in the water down there within a few weeks. Ended up doing some side work the last couple days that killed my plans of working on the boat over the weekend. Probably gonna do Long Beach when the time comes and put in a day or two fishing and hooping.

    The speeds sound good. I hope the fuel burn numbers get better when you hook up the flowscan. All the work sounds like it's paying off for you!

    Mine just has the little rubber flaps on the outside of the scuppers to help prevent water washing back in. Not familiar with the duck bills myself.

    No, sorry but I didn't get anything.

    Doesn't get much better than that report! What did you burn, maybe 10 gallons? Thanks for sharing

    What kind of fuel numbers are you getting with this setup and what kind of cruise speed and top speed? I have the 165hp 4 cyl. I haven't taken mine out yet but am really curious about fuel consumption.

    HI, just came across some of your old posts and wondered if you still have this boat? I picked up an '89 IMP w.a. and was curious what kind of fuel consumption #'s you have. I have the 165hp version of the same motor. I see you haven't posted here for over a year but thought I'd roll the dice...

    Found another member on here that has a boat like ours. It's a Marathon. He posted a pic on my project page. How's your boat coming along?
