Well I took the floor up and got the tank out. It's a good thing because it has some pitting on the bottom side. So the bad news is I have to get a new tank, but the good news is I am able to see that these boats were built like brick chit houses. Everything is solid under the floor and it has full length stringers.

Another cool thing I found was when I took apart the original back seat and found "Cigarrette" written on the foam. I guess Cigarette and Corsa were using the same upholsters at the time.

These will be going on the new floor...they came out of Ryan Beckley's old boat. I got some Dana Marine billet bases for them.

Thanks Brian. I hope it does the new breed of Corsa justice when it's done

This was my Corsa. I think it could of been the plug for the newer style boats. It had a 1/2" gel coat on it and a wooden splash rail screwed into the side. It took me months to sand all the gel off.

the title said 80. It was my offshore boat and it was a repo from eastern airlines in 1988? I built the motor w/12 to 1 comp.468 w/420 exhaust. Accel hei ignition, It ran 76 mph on its best day. I used single ram steering and what ever I could scavenge for the rest of it. The fuel tank were 25 gal. saddle tanks. I had about 6000 into it and ran the crap out of it. First garage boat paint job. It was called Black Beauty when I got it and was in almost non restorable cond. The motor in the boat was a crate fresh LS6 that had rusty acces. on it. I put my hand on the thermostat housing and it broke off and crumbled. The TRS dated the boat back to like 73 or so. Good luck w/yours
