1976 Performer 233 292 Twin Screw Power Boat Restoration what a cool boat It was Designed by Harry Schoell  same designer for many famous boats as the Formula 233, the famous seabird 24, Magnum Marine and Donzi . Don Aronow collaborated with Harry Schoell on many of his famous 24 degree V Hulls .The Performer  was built by the same crews that hand laid up the cigarettes , and the Carys . As you will see the Performer has awesome lines and will slay some pretty nasty seas especially with the twin screw set up this boat has.

As you will see the Performer has the twin screw 292 6 cyl set up MerCruiser with fresh water cooling keep in mind the boat is almost 40 years old its in pristine condition for its age .

This is a picture of the the fresh water cooling system that I personally love even though this is a fresh water boat  its always best to have antifreeze cooling your engine package anti freeze has anti rust additives where fresh water and more so salt water will eat your engine from the inside out .

 Here is a better picture of the Morse duel action  control’s along with fuel shut offs its always a good Idea to run the fuel out of the system when storing boat for some time especially with the garbage gas that we have now .

I like to run my boats with a shot of marvel mystery oil in the gas and lead substitute additive in this case the Mercury factory requires that min 92 octane gasoline be used and musts have lead  to lubricate the valves

 Personally I like the  1976 Performer 233 292 Twin Screw Power Boat Restoration and choose to own this boat over the 223 formula it has a nicer flare on the front of the hull to give you a dryer ride along with the engine compartment is much better hull and deck work fit and finish – When this boat is complete we will be shooting with silver base coat , charcoal, and whites and we will use silver and carbon fiber upholstery combination to really bring this boat into the Now ! with out taking away from the seventies style
