Chris, good to see you started to refresh the 402.
Need any help?
I like your "Mini Me" 402. 😉

Thanks OPIE272 I'm making progress as time and money permit. Hopefully make it through another summer uneventful, then next winter gut the cabin and replace the trannys with a set of Hubers I just picked up.
Was that you I met at wood Island on Texoma this past summer.

I don't surf the web much anymore. So I probably dropped off radar for a bit.
Moved 2yr ago.
Missed 1 entire summer with relocation issues.
Only went out a couple times last year. About $2K in fuel.
Just enough to freshen the 2 year old fuel left over from 2012.

The 402 SR1 is one of the best looking boats ever made. Its so cool that you guys are redoing them and keeping them alive.

Chris,

I just purchased a 1987 Formula 402 SR1, I think it's similar to yours. What have you found to be the most dominate issues? I do have some "rot" around the fuel tanks that needs to be addressed.

thank you,

GMS

GMS, Congratulations and post up some pictures. Most all my issues stem from previous owners incompetent mechanics, crappy wiring ect. The screws from the hull to deck are an issue and do come loose. that is on my to do list. I had a serious car wreck may 2015 and have been sidelined from the boat. just finishing recovering from the major spine surgery and hope to be back on the water next month. Luckily have some good friends at the lake who have been servicing and running it the last two years . Also there is a sump pump under the step down to the cabin. Make sure it works there was no floor drain on my cockpit floor so if you got caught in rain that water went into the cabin. Mine has 420's and trs outdrives 21 pitch props seem to be the best so far.
Good luck they are fun and like rough water
Chris
